Rdh10a depletion enhances defects in nls/aldh1a2 mutant embryos.
(A, D) WT control and Rdh10a deficient embryos. (B,E) Control and Rdh10a deficient embryos heterozygous for the nls allele. (C,F) Control and Rdh10a deficient embryos homozygous for the nls allele. Nls mutant embryos (C) show anteriorization of nervous system (black arrowhead), increases in the size of the head (black bracket), and pericardial edema. Rdh10a deficient; nls mutant embryos (F) have an accentuated anteriorization of the nervous system (arrowhead), larger and dysmorphic head (red bracket), and enhanced pericardial edema compared to nls embryos. Dorsal is up and anterior is to the right.
