Intense NES-GFP expression by satellite cells in cross sections of EDL muscle from NES-GFP/Myf5nlacZ/+ mice (A-A”’, B-B”’) or tongue muscle from NES-GFP mice (C-C’). GFP+ cells (arrowhead) positioned under the myofiber basal lamina as shown by immunolabeling for laminin (red) and DAPI (blue) are also positive for β-gal as shown by merged images of X-gal staining (arrowhead) and phase contrast (A”, B”). Parallel merged images of DAPI stained nuclei and phase images with X-gal staining are also shown (A”’, B”’). Images in panels A and B demonstrate that NES-GFP satellite cells are associated with both small- and large- diameter myofibers of the same muscle Scale bar, 5 μm (A–B”’, C-C’), 10 μm (C-C”’).
