In Situ Hybridization using cRNAs for Collagen Type IV
         

Day 7: Anti-sense signal localized around enlarged nuclei (clear zones, arrows) of the Nurse Cell. Bar = 80 µm
 

Day 9: Signal is stronger and occurred adjacent to all enlarged nuclei. Bar = 80 µm

 
Day 15: Pattern similar to day 9. All enlarged nuclei are expressing message. No hybridization occurred in the worm (arrow) or capsule (arrowhead). Bar = 100 µm
         
     
Day 24: No hybridization occurred on the worm (arrow), capsule (arrowhead), or cytoplasm


 
Sense probe did not hybridize to any of the above tissues.
Arrows = parasite.
Bar = 10 µm
