K.Kretzschmar 2 (umbrella's!)

Genetics lineage tracing of BLIMP1-expressing cells and their progeny (labelled with green fluorescent protein, GFP) in a whole-mount preparation of adult mouse tail epidermis. Differentiated sebocytes are labelled in red and polymerized actin is labelled in blue. The image shows GFP-positive cells in the hair follicle bulge but not in the sebaceous gland.
