Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Abca12tm1Lex/Abca12tm1Lex P0 pups are able to inflate their lungs if maintained in a hydrating environment. A, Abca12tm1Lex/Abca12tm1Lex (Abca12-/-) P0 lungs float in 1 x PBS indicating an ablility to inflate the lung. B, Histological sections of mutant lung shows inflated alveoli relative to the corresponding littermate wild-type (Abca12+/+) lungs. C, electron micrographs of the mutant lungs demonstrate type II alveolar cells form lamellar bodies and secrete surfactant.
