  • Expression patterns of GPA-2, GPA-3, GPA-5, GPA-6, GPA-13, and ODR-3 are shown as observed with polyclonal antibodies. Staining was performed on wild-type animals, except for anti-GPA-6 antibodies, which were applied to gpa-6XS animals. Expression patterns based on GFP fusion constructs have been described previously (Zwaal et al. 1997; Roayaie et al. 1998; Jansen et al. 1999). Cells that were previously not identified are underlined.
