Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Embryos from Ptbp1tm1Msol heterozygous parents fall into 2 size categories. Hematoxylin and eosin stained decidual sections of 2 litters were analysed for surface area and structural organisation. Embryos were grouped according to their developmental stage (left) with the furthest developed having reached neural plate stage but most embryos being at the primitive streak stage. The surface area of the embryos in the middle section was measured with the Fiji image software and ranked according to size, which turned out as equivalent to stage (right). Presumedknockouts (red) were significantly smaller than wild-type or heterozygous controls and present in a roughly Mendelian ratio of 3:10 (ratio 0.3 vs. the expected 0.25). The size of the small embryos might have even been overestimated since it was harder to recognise the embryo in those implantations. We also encountered 2 decidua with no visible embryonic structures.
