Abstract

This protocol describes whole-mount in situ hybridization on sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis) embryos. This method is a mainstay of the sea squirt (Ciona) research community. It permits the detailed visualization of gene expression at single-cell resolution. It has been used to detect localized maternal mRNAs in the fertilized egg and to identify restricted patterns of gene expression within individual cells of the developing central nervous system at advanced stages of development, including swimming tadpoles.
