Fig. 1 All three neural crest-derived chromatophore cell types are affected by enz mutations.
Dorsal views of 54 hpf (A–E) and 82 hpf (F–J) wild-type (A, F) and enz mutant (B–E, G–J) embryos. (A, A inset) Wild-type melanophores are stellate and darkly pigmented at 54 hpf. (B–E) In contrast, enzb431 (B), enzos7 (C), enzos15 (D) and enzos18 (E) mutant embryos have small, punctate melanophores at this stage (compare insets in A and B). Yellow xanthophores, observed dorsally in the head of wild-type embryos (arrowhead in A) appear to be absent in enz homozygotes (B–E, arrowheads). (F–J) Iridescent iridiphores are also reduced in size in enz mutants (G–J, arrowheads) compared to wild-type siblings (F, arrowheads) at 82 hpf.
