Cover legend

A mouse Cdx1/lacZ reporter transgene in P19 embryonal carcinoma cells is activated in an increased proportion of the population by the synergistic actions of Wnt3a and retinoic acid upon Cdx1 cis-regulatory elements. Antibody stained lacZ gene product (β-galactosidase) is shown red. DAPI counterstained nuclei are blue. For more information, see Gaunt and Paul in the current issue.
