Depletion of Gle1 reduces ciliary beating and alters left–right asymmetry in zebrafish. (A) The axoneme and the basal body of the cilia were mosaically labeled by Arl13b-eGFP and Cetn4-TagRFP, respectively, in uninjected, ipk1MO1-injected, or gle1MOs-injected embryos. Motile cilia in the Kupffer’s vesicle were imaged at six- to nine-somite stages from the dorsal side, anterior to the right. Normal ciliary beating is detected by a fan-like morphology in the control. Scale bar, 5 μm. (B) Tg(-5.1mnx1:TagRFP) embryos were injected with suboptimal doses of translation-blocking ipk1 morpholino (ipk1MO1, 4 ng), a mix of two nonoverlapping translation-blocking gle1 morpholinos (gle1MOs, 1.5 ng each), or a combination of both ipk1MO1 and gle1MOs at the one-cell stage. The direction of the heart looping (TagRFP+) was assessed at 60–72 h post fertilization. Three independent injections were performed for each condition. Values are mean ± SEM; n is the number of embryos analyzed in each condition.
