Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Electron micrographs of bladder smooth muscle cells. The overall morphology of the smooth muscle cells are very similar, however the number of thick filaments in a given field is greatly reduced in Myh11tm2Peri/Myh11tm2Peri (SM2-/-) mice. (Top) Longitudinal section showing morphology of smooth muscle cells (Magnification 6,000x). (Middle) Cross-section of myosin filaments (Magnification 68,000x). (Bottom) Enlarged images (25x) of square areas indicated in Middle.) Arrows point to the myosin thick filaments; circles indicate the locations of dense bodies.
