MZjek have a dysmorphic heart and reduced ventricular populations. (A,B) Lateral views of hearts stained with MF20 (red) and S46 (green) antibodies to visualize the ventricle and atrium of 48 hpf embryos. MF20 marks the entire heart and S46 is atrium specific. In these superimposed images MF20+S46- ventricle is red and MF20+S46+ atrium appears yellow. (A) Wildtype heart with two distinct chambers. (B) MZjek display a dysmorphic heart, with a misshapen atrium and a strung out ventricle (N=9). (C–F) amhc and vmhc expression in wildtype (C,E) and MZjek (D,F) at the 20-somite stage. MZjek mutants exhibit reduced expression of vmhc when compared to similarly staged wildtype embryos (N=25, 36 respectively).
