Phenotype Image Detail
Caption D: Hematoxylin and eosin, and Oil-red-O stainings reveal the swelling of hepatocytes with formation of large lipid-containing vesicles in KitMhdasco5/KitMhdasco5 versus wild type littermates at 7.5 and 10.5 days post partum (dpp). G: At 0.5 dpp, the Oil-red-O staining of liver sections from homozygous and wild type mice which had not yet suckled, are identical showing no accumulation of lipids. However, after breast feeding, hepatocytes from wild type newborns appear to stock lipids inside microvesicles at 1.5 dpp, a phenomenon that is not observed at later stages. On the contrary, in homozygous mice which have suckled milk from their mother, lipids accumulation is still found in hepatic cells after 1.5 dpp.
