Cover legend

The expression of the Cripto gene defines a subdomain within the early embryonic heart. Shown here is a double color image from whole-mount in situ hybridization, illustrating the entire mouse cardiac myocyte population (red), of which only a portion expresses Cripto (purple). For more information, see Jin et al., pp. 793-797 in the current issue.
