Fig. 5 mitfa is required at multiple steps in melanocyte development. A) mitfa expression persists at restrictive temperature. Wild-type and mitfafh53 larvae are shown. B) No dct is expressed in neural crest cells when held at restrictive temperature, but retinal expression of dct is not affected. Wild-type, mitfaw2, mitfafh53, and mitfavc7 larvae are shown. Embryos were treated with 0.2 mM PTU to suppress melanin synthesis. All larvae are at the equivalent of 82 h at standard temperature.
