Figure 6

Increased apoptosis observed in the head region of BDNF morphants. Whole mount TUNEL staining of uninjected embryos at (A) St. 27 and (B) 32. In MO BDNFatg injected morphants, cell death activity in the head region was comparable to those in uninjected embryos at (C) St. 27, but number of cells undergoing apoptosis increased significantly at (D) St. 32. (E) Quantitation of cells undergoing apoptosis shows a 3-fold increase of cell death activity in St. 32 BDNF morphants.
