Mammalian Reproduction and Development

Cover legend

The cover picture highlights some of the problems in mammalian reproduction and development that have been elucidated by the research of Dr Anne McLaren. The background shows a section through an ovary full of oocytes in primordial follicles. The foreground shows from upper left, clockwise: a mouse uterus with implanting embryos 6 days after fertilization. Increased vascular permeability at the implantation site is revealed by intravenous injection of Chicago Blue B dye; alkaline phosphatase positive primordial germ cells migrating from the base of the allantois along the hind gut; two albino mice which developed from embryos that were cultured in vitro and then implanted in an agouti foster mother, and a chimeric mouse.

Mammalian reproduction and development. Special issue dedicated to honouring the career of Anne McLaren.
