I am currently doing some in-situ hybridizations looking for an
oxidative-stress related enzyme, and I am finding lots of specific signal
in blood when I look at gestational day 16  mouse embryo slices.  My
believe is that mature RBC do not have RNA, does anybody know whether that
is the case with fetal red blood cells, or whether fetal blood has a
higher proportion of immature RBCs than adult blood???
