Cover legend

Confocal fluorescence image of a Cer1P-GFP transgenic E5.5 mouse embryo. The anterior visceral endoderm (AVE) can be distinguished as green labeled cells shown by the GFP fluorescence driven by the Cer1 promoter. Red fluorescence shows F-actin phalloidin which labels cell membranes. For more information, see Gonçalves et al., pp. 281-295 in the current issue.
