Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Skin phenotype. (b) Hematoxylin and eosin staining of skin from 10 month old wild-type (Fbn1+/+), heterozygous Fbn1tm3.2Lysa/Fbn1+ (Fbn1WMdelta/+), and homozygous Fbn1tm3.2Lysa/Fbn1tm3.2Lysa (Fbn1WMdelta/WMdelta) littermates. Dermal fibers in the mutant skin appeared to be thicker and more densely packed when compared to the wild-type littermate skin. Scale bar = 50 um. (c) Masson's trichrome staining of skin from the same 10 month old littermates as in (b). Heterozygous and homozygous mutant skin showed increased collagen deposition. In addition, in both (b) and (c), the dermis appeared to be wider with a strikingly diminished hypodermal fat layer. Scale bar = 50 um.
