Fig. 7

Endothelial overexpression of id4 in id4 mutants can partially rescue their valve phenotype. Although id4-/- (A) generally lack spp1 expression, a subset does exhibit spp1 expression after endothelial specific id4 overexpression (B). Similarly, as compared to id4-/- which show ectopic bmp4 expression (C), id4 mutants with endothelial specific id4 overexpression (D) show reduced misexpression of bmp4. (E) Most of the larvae with endocardial re-expression of id4 in the id4-/- background show mild retrograde blood flow as compared to id4-/- siblings, most of which show high backflow. Scale bars, 100 ┬Ám.
