Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Upper panel: Liver of a control mouse. A portal tract is shown in the center of the picture. Lower panels: Liver of mutant mice. On the left, small fat vacuoles are seen within the cytoplasm of the hepatocytes in a male Pitx3eyl/Pitx3eyl mouse. On the right, a more diffuse liver steatosis in a female mutant mouse is shown. In the macrovesicular steatosis (thick arrow), the nucleus is displaced toward the cell membrane. In the microvesicular steatosis (thin arrow), the nucleus retains its position in the center of the cytoplasm (100x).
