Figure S8. Evidence of depletion of Gli1 in the target cells. The depletion of Gli1 in the target cells was confirmed by staining the tissue sections of Nse-BMP4;Gli1-creERT−/−;Zsgreen mice (A, low power &B, high power), and the tissues of Nse-BMP4;Gli1-creERT+/−;Zsgreen (C, low power &D, high power) mice with Gli1 antibody. Note that there is no specific staining of Gli1 (red) in the lesional tissues from Nse-BMP4;Gli1-creERT−/−;Zsgreen mice, while the specific staining of Gli1 (red) was observed in the Zsgreen+ cells in the proposed MSC niche in lesional tissues from Nse-BMP4;Gli1-creERT+/−;Zsgreen mice.
