Bmp4 Expression in Mouse Limb and Orofacial Region
- upper row - Frontal views of the developing head of Bmp4lacZneo transgenic embryos from permanent line TL3459.
- lower row - Lateral views of developing fore- or hindlimbs of Bmp4lacZneo control mouse embryos.
From E9.5 to E11.0, Bmp4 is expressed in the epithelium overlying the distal first branchial arch, maxillary and mandibular processes and medial and lateral nasal processes.
Expression in the ectoderm overlying the distal part of the first branchial arch at E9.5 and the mandibular process at E10.5.
At E12.5, endogenous Bmp4 expression shifts to the mesenchyme.
At E12.5 and 13.5, endogenous Bmp4 is concentrated in the mesenchyme of the midface including the whisker follicles.
Abbreviations: MxP, maxillary process; MdP, mandibular process; MNP, medial nasal process; LNP, lateral nasal process; NP, nasal pit; Mx, maxilla; Md, mandible.
