Figure 5

Decreased axon terminal arborisation in cement glands of BDNF morphants. Whole mount immunofluorescent staining of St. 29 X. laevis embryos with anti-acetylated α-tubulin shows trigeminal axon arborisation and growth into the cement gland in (A), (B) and (C) uninjected, and (D), (E) and (F) MOC injected embryos. (G), (H) and (I) In MO BDNFatg injected embryos trigeminal axons extended to the cement gland but did not arborise or grow into the cement gland.
