Animation showing the developmental expression of Bmp4 in the Mouse Face

Frontal views of the developing head of Bmp4lacZneo transgenic embryos. (Original images have been modified for this animation)

  • From E9.5 to E11.0, Bmp4 is expressed in the epithelium overlying the distal first branchial arch, maxillary and mandibular processes and medial and lateral nasal processes.
  • Expression in the ectoderm overlying the distal part of the first branchial arch at E9.5 and the mandibular process at E10.5.
  • At E12.5, endogenous Bmp4 expression shifts to the mesenchyme.
  • At E12.5 and 13.5, endogenous Bmp4 is concentrated in the mesenchyme of the midface including the whisker follicles.

Abbreviations: MxP, maxillary process; MdP, mandibular process; MNP, medial nasal process; LNP, lateral nasal process; NP, nasal pit; Mx, maxilla; Md, mandible.
