The phenotypes of WT, control morphant, and three impdh morphants at early stages of development.
(A) impdh1b morphant development was faster than WT or control larvae while the impdh2 morphant grew slower at 32 hpf and 52 hpf. (B) The body lengths were calculated in 5 dpf larvae. impdh1b knock-down promotes larval zebrafish development significantly. Error bars represent the standard error of mean (SEM) among independent replicates. * p<0.05; ***P<0.001, unpaired two-tailed Student’s t-test, scale bars, 500μm.
