  Fig. 1. Localization of XDead end mRNA in Xenopus oocytes and embryos. The subcellular distribution of the XDead end mRNA was analyzed using albino oocytes or embryos of different stages for whole mount in situ hybridization. In stage I and II oocytes, XDead end RNA is homogeneously distributed (A). In later stages (early and late stage III, stage IV) (A) and stage V and VI (B), the XDead end RNA becomes enriched at the vegetal cortex. (D, E) Two-cell stage embryo exhibiting a granular structure at the vegetal tip of both blastomeres. (F) Vegetal view of an 8-cell stage embryo (G) Vegetal view of a gastrula embryo with XDead end positive cells in the center of the yolk plug (marked by an arrow). (H) Transverse section of a neurula stage embryo exhibiting XDead end expression in scattered cells linking the future gut. (I, I′) XDead end expression in migrating germ cells of a tailbud stage embryo. (J) Temporal expression during embryogenesis and tissue expression of XDead end. RT-PCR analysis with RNA preparations from staged embryos (according to Nieuwkoop and Faber, 1967) and adult tissue respectively (sc, spinal cord; mu, muscle; li, liver; he, heart; in, intestine; sk, skin; pa, pancreas; br, brain; ey, eye; lu, lung; te, testis; ov, ovary). Control RT-PCR reactions with primers specifically for Histone 4 (H4).
