Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Skeletal preparation of a newborn Fgf9Eks/Fgf9Eks (Eks/Eks) (A,D,E,J), Fgf9Eks/Fgf9+ (Eks/+) (B,F,G,K) and wild-type (+/+) (C,H,I,L) mice are shown. Overviews of the entire forelimbs (A,B,C), higher magnification views of elbow joint (D,F,H), histological examinations of the elbow joints (E,G,I), and overviews of the entire hindlimbs (J,K,L) are aligned. Arrows in A,D and E indicate the prospective humeroradial joint. The arrow in J indicates the prospective femurotibial joint. Arrows in B,F and G indicate fusion of the humeroradial joint. Arrows in C,H and I indicate normal humeroradial joints. The arrow in J indicates the presumptive knee joint. The arrow in L indicates the knee joint. The following abbreviations are used: s, scapula; h, humerus; r, radius; u, ulna; fe, femur; t, tibia; fi, fibula.
