Fig. 4 Dominant mutations of aqp3a do not act cell-autonomously in pigment cells. (A-C) Blastomere transplantations of aqp3atVE1/tVE1 into mutants lacking one chromatophore type (nacre, transparent or pfeffer). (D-F) Typical chimeric animals resulting from transplantations show the striped wild-type pattern in the regions where mau pigment cells complement the host residual pattern. (G) Wild-type iridophores Tg(TDL358:GFP) do not form a wild-type pattern when transplanted into aqp3atVE1/tVE1. Left: GFP-labeled iridophores; middle: corresponding bright-field image; right: merged image.
