Fig. 2

Adult fish that are heterozygous or homozygous for salz or pfeffer show pigment pattern defects. (A) Wild-type, (B) heterozygous pfetg17 and (C) homozygous saltt254a fish in a lateral view.

Fig. 3

Xanthophore pigment is reduced in edison and brie. Day 6 larva, dorsal view of the head region posterior to the eyes, viewed with nomarski optics (A,C,E) and lateral view of ammonia-induced fluorescence in the trunk under UV light epi-illumination (B,D,F). Wild type (A,B) and homozygous mutant larvae of edito255b (C), editc245c (D), and britj226a (E,F). M, melanophores; X and arrow, xanthophores.

Fig. 4

Mutant edison embryos show strong autofluorescence under UV-light illumination. Embryos at the pharyngula period derived from two heterozygous carriers for editk232. Homozygous mutant edi embryos show strong blue fluorescence in the entire embryo, whereas wild-type siblings show only background levels.

Fig. 5

Embryos derived from homozygous mutant yobty44d females show a maternal effect phenotype. Lateral view of (A) a wild-type embryo and (B) an embryo derived from a yob homozygous female at the 5-somite stage, showing the reduced length of the body. (C) Dorsal view of a 10-somite stage wild-type embryo and (D) a 10- somite stage embryo derived from a yob homozygous female showing the wider axis. Lateral view of a wild-type embryo (E) and an embryo derived from a yob homozygous female (F) at the pharyngula period, showing the head and tail defects. Lateral view of a wild-type embryo (G) and an embryo derived from a yob homozygous female (H) at the hatching period.

Fig. 6

In tilsit mutants xanthophore pigment appears condensed whereas the cells appear more spread out. Dorsal view of day-6 larva in the head region posterior to the eyes, viewed with Nomarski optics (A,C), and lateral view of ammonia-induced fluorescence in the trunk under UV-light epi-illumination (B,D). (A,B) Wild type and (C,D) homozygous mutant larva of tilty130b. M, melanophores; X, and arrow, xanthophores.
