Opercle and branchiostegal ray phenotypes in anterior arch mutants.
Homozygous mutants were obtained by crossing heterozygotes that were scored by facial phenotypes and separated from phenotypic wild-type siblings before fixation and bone staining with Calcein. The wild-type phenotype indicates that the element (opercle or branchiostegal ray) appears normal in shape and size. The gain phenotype means any significant expansion (see text). The loss class includes reduction in size, as well as other cases where the element is missing altogether. The two edn1 examples (separate experiments involving crosses between different individual fish) are quantitatively different, indicating that quantitative comparisons between clutches must be interpreted with caution. Similarly, in other experiments, stu mutants had higher fractions of opercle gain phenotypes, comparable with she mutants in the table.
