Phenotype Image Detail
Caption (A-C) Primoridal germ cells (PGCs) were visualized by wholemount SSEA1 immunostaining with SSEA1 antibody in E10.25 wild-type (WT), Ror2Y324C/Ror2Y324C (Ror2Y324C), and Wnt5atm1Amc/Wnt5atm1Amc (Wnt5a-/-) embryos. (E-G) Gonadal ridges from E11.5 stained with GCNA, and (I-K) E12.5 male gonads stained with GCNA antibody. The caudal end is down in all images. (D, H, L) Quantification of PGCs in the entire E10.25 embryo, E11.5 and E12.5 gonads from confocal stacks, with individuals denoted as WT (diamonds), Ror2Y324C/Ror2Y324C mutants (triangle), and Wnt5atm1Amc/Wnt5atm1Amc null (circle), and means indicated as bars. Consistent with appearances, a significant reduction of PGCs was observed in Wnt5atm1Amc/Wnt5atm1Amc and from E11.5 onward in Ror2Y324C/Ror2Y324C mutants. We noted no significant difference in the number of PGCs between XX and XY gonads at E12.5 (not shown). Results of the Student's t-test are indicated, * p<0.05, ** p<0.01, *** p<0.001.
