Differential inhibition of Wnt-3a by Sfrp-1, Sfrp-2, and Sfrp-3



Hamburger Hamilton stage 13 chick embryo was electroporated with constructs encoding Sfrp-2 (marked by expression of nuclear GFP) and Wnt-3a (marked by expression of membrane bound GFP) and then incubated until stage 21. A transverse section was then immunostained for Pax-7 (blue) and antiphosphohistone H3 (red). The upper left panel shows the original image, while the other three panels show digitally manipulated versions of the original image.
