brd3a is an important regulator of thrombopoiesis.
(A) Live confocal imaging of zebrafish embryos injected with hBRD3-GFP mRNA revealed the nuclear localization of hBRD3 and that it binds to mitotic chromosomes (white arrows). Expression of hBRD3 in brd3a MO injected embryos resulted in a partial rescue of the number of thrombocytes as shown in (B). (C) A graph to illustrate the number of thrombocytes in control, splice brd3a MO and splice brd3a MO plus hBRD3 mRNA injected embryos. Each dot represents the number of thrombocytes in the individual MO-injected embryos with respect to control. A blue horizontal line represents the mean value of the number of thrombocytes for each group of embryos. Student t test, * p = 0.016; n = 17. All embryos are oriented with anterior to the left and dorsal to the top.
