This animation is designed to show the changing bronchial branching pattern in the developing mouse lung between E10 to E14 of development. The referenced article identified a thickening of the respiratory epithelium in a specific region before bending of that epithelium to commence a branch point. Mesoderm did not appear to have morphological changes associated with this process.
Mouse whole-mount immunohistochemistry using vimentin to mark mesenchyme (red) and E-cadherin to mark epithelium (blue) was used to characterize bronchial branching morphogenesis.
Note the animation is based upon images from reference figure 1 and are not from the same mouse, but a sequence of fluorescent images.
