Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Neutralization of BMP10 causes defective vascular development in Gdf2tm1Lex/Gdf2+ (Bmp9+/-) and Gdf2tm1Lex/Gdf2tm1Lex (Bmp9-/-) mice. (A) Fluorescence images of low (Top) and higher magnification (Middle and Bottom) of retinal vasculature. Neonatal mice were treated with PBS or anti-BMP10 (462732; R&D Systems) on P2 and P4, at 10 mg/kg. Whole mount P7 mouse retinas were stained with isolectin B4 to visualize overall vasculature, and anti-alphaSMA for arteries. Dotted line at Middle marks the edge of retinal cup. (Scale bars: Top, 500 um; Middle, 200 um; Bottom, 25 um.)
