Fig. 4. Localization of vitellogenin mRNA in the hepatopancreas and ovary by in situ hybridization in Marsupeaneus japonicus. Vitellogenin gene expression was observed in (A) follicle cells of the ovary and (C) parenchymal cells of the hepatopancreas. Hybridization with a sense probe resulted in no significant signal in (B) ovary or (D) hepatopancreas. Bars = 20 μm in A and B; 10 μm in C and D.
