Hepatic fat deposition phenomenon in R. omeimontis tadpoles. a Typical morphology of a stage 31 R. omeimontis tadpole and its liver. b Micro-CT imaging of a stage 31 R. omeimontis tadpole. c Fat-specific stain by dithizone. Tissues with abundant neutral lipids are stained green. The liver is the only organ stained green. d-f Histological morphology of liver of R. omeimontis tadpoles: D, H&E staining; E, PAS staining; F, RO staining. g Distribution of triglycerides in R. omeimontis tadpoles (by TLC)
