Phenotype Image Detail
Caption A: Upper panels, Mta2tm1.1Yzha/Mta2tm1.1Yzha (KO) mice show skin lesions at eyelid, mouth, nose and neck area as indicated by arrows. Lower panels, hemotoxylene and eosin (H&E) staining of skin sections from wild type (WT) and mutant mice show significant hyperkerotosis (arrow) and epidermal cell hyperplasia (acanthosis) (arrowheads) in mutant mice. B: Upper panels, H&E-stained kidney sections of mutant mice reveal mesangial cell proliferation (arrowhead). Lower panels, mutant mice also show lymphocyte infiltration (arrow) in kidney. C: Mutant mice develop liver inflammation. H&E stained liver sections of mutant mice reveal lymphocyte infiltration (lower panel, arrowhead). Portal veins are indicated by arrows. D: Comparison of the liver enzyme activity levels in serum measured by ELISA. Mutant mice had a significantly increased alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in the serum of mutant mice when compared with wild type mice. Asterisk indicated the difference is statistically significant.
