The image depicts validation of complementary spatial distributions between hypoxia-induced GFP expression (green) and Hoechst 33342 labeling (blue) in reporter-transduced mouse mammary 4T1 carcinoma tumor cells.  This complementary distribution between GFP fluorescence and Hoechst 33342 labeling in 4T1 tumors indicates that the GFP reporter gene is specifically expressed in insufficiently perfused tumor tissues, where hypoxia commonly occurs.
