FISH detection of rusticalin mRNA in the blood cells. I Hyalinocytes (H) and morula cells (Mc), hematoxylin and eosin staining, DIC microscopy. Note hyalinocytes containing numerous small spherical granules (arrows). Scale bar, 5 μm. II Confocal sections showing the distribution of transcripts (b) within the cells with the morphology of hyalinocytes (a). Scale bar, 10 μm. The hybrids with Probe 2 were detected with streptavidin-Alexa594 (red pseudo color). 4′-6-Diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) was used as a general DNA dye (blue pseudo color)
