Fig. 3

Confocal scan of transgenic larvae at 3 dpf having a promoter-GFP cassette inserted upstream of SNP rs9939609 in FTO intron 1 (ac). Expression is detected in the ventral part of posterior tuberculum, in the caudal hypothalamus and in the anterior brainstem. (a) Representative optical sections through 3 dpf larvae that were stained for GFP and tubulin, in lateral and transverse views. The blue lines indicate the range of sections shown in b,c. (b) A row of optical sections through the GFP expression domain as indicated in "a." (c) Z-stack images. The first z-stack image includes hypothalamus and PTv, "b" is further posterior and includes the caudal hypothalamus only. Red arrows: Neurons in the hindbrain are strongly labeled and project ventrally as well as contralaterally. Abbreviations: (CeP) Cerebellar plate, (Hc) caudal hypothalamus, (Hi) intermediate hypothalamus, (MO) Medulla oblongata, (PoA) preoptic area, (PTv) ventral part of posterior tuberculum, (T) midbrain tegmentum, (Tel) Telencephalon, (TeO) Tectum opticum.
