Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Development of the epidermal permeability barrier. A, littermate E18.5 embryos stained with toluidine blue indicates loss of ABCA12 function (Abca12tm1Lex/Abca12tm1Lex) increases inward permeability to this dye. B, loss of ABCA12 function significantly increases outward transepidermal water loss rates as measured in littermate E18.5 embryos using the gravimetric assay. (Abca12+/+, n=3; Abca12+/-, n=7; Abca12-/-, n=6; +/- S.E.: p= 0.11, Abca12 +/+ versus Abca12 +/-; p=0.00005, Abca12+/+ versus Abca12-/-).
