Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Krt14tm1Efu/Krt14tm1Efu mice exhibit gross blistering over their body surface due to cytolysis in the basal layer of the epidermis. (a) 2 day old mutant mouse. Note that the front limbs and paws of this mouse are severely blistered. This occurred frequently in mutant mice in response to mild physical trauma. (b) Semithin (0.75 um) sections of a mutant skin biopsy taken at 2 days of age, embedded in Epon and stained with toluidine blue. Note formation of intrabasal blister leading to separation of the epidermis from the underlying dermis (double-headed arrow). From bottom to top: B, basal layer; S, spinous layers; G, granular layer; S, stratum corneum, hf, hair follicle. Bar, 30 um.
