Figure 6. Immunolocalization of E-cadherin
E-cadherin expression was examined in adult eye sections using immunofluorescence and was detected with a FITC-conjugated secondary antibody (green). (A) E-cadherin was expressed in the cell-cell junctions of the lens and corneal epithelium in wild type eyes. (B) E-cadherin was expressed in the lens and corneal epithelium as well as in the plaques of the Pax6+/lacZ eyes. (C) E-cadherin was expressed within the lens stalk, the underlying plaque as well as in the lens and corneal epithelium of the Pax6+/lacZ/AP-2α+/-eyes. LE, lens epithelium; CE, corneal epithelium; P, plaque; LS, lens stalk. All scalebars are 100 μm.
