Characterization of Lymphatic Vasculature Using Whole-Mount Immunostaining of Mouse Embryonic Dorsal Skin.
Ved N., Kalisch-Smith JI.
Understanding the development of the lymphatic vasculature is essential to the understanding of how these vessels function in health and disease. High-resolution imaging of histological techniques such as immunostaining of sectioned tissue provides a snapshot into lymphatic vessel morphogenesis, patterning, and organization. Whole-mount staining of embryonic dermal vasculature allows for a deeper analysis and characterization of the developing lymphatic vascular network.
