(A) ISH of stage 9 vegetally-injected embryos (Mef2D-Flag mRNA) using antisense Brachyury probe (left). Arrows point at punctate staining. MEF2D-Flag mRNA was injected marginally to one cell embryos. RNA was extracted from whole embryos (n = 18) at stages 10.5 and the expression levels of the indicated genes was analyzed by semi quantitative RT-PCR (right). (B) mRNA encoding MEF2-VP16 chimera was injected to one cell embryos. Left panel: Stage 10.5 embryos were analyzed by ISH using antisense probe to brachyury. Right panel: Two blastomere embryos were injected unilaterally with MEF2-VP16 and βGAL mRNA and grown to stage 16. ISH with a probe to myod was performed. The injected side was identified by βGAL staining. (C) MEF2-VP16 mRNA was injected marginally to one cell embryos. RNA was extracted from VMZ explants (n = 18) at stages 10.25 (left) and 14 (right) and analyzed by semi quantitative RT-PCR.
