Expression of mitfb during eye development. (Top) 18 somite stage. Both mitfa and mitfb are expressed in the RPE (arrowheads) but only mitfa is expressed in neural crest (arrows). (Bottom) 60 hpf. At this stage, mitfa expression is no longer detectable in the eye; however, mitfb transcripts are present in cells at the retinal margin. Anterior is to the left.
