Regulation of Endomesoderm Segregation

Figure 5

In wild type blastula (Control, F), wnt1 is localized to the pre-endodermal cells, visualized by the darker purple coloration. Notch is necessary to restrict wnt1 to the endoderm precursors; when it’s knocked down (Notch MASO, I), wnt1 is expressed throughout the endomesoderm. In addition, knockdown of Hox11/13b (Hox11/13b MASO, G) and Brachyury (Brachyury MASO, H) resulted in no wnt1 expression, suggesting Hox11/13b and Brachyury are also necessary for normal wnt1 mRNA expression.
