Otp paralogs have differential effect on hypothalamic oxt expression.

(AD) Representative high-resolution micrographs of 5 day-old embryos that were subjected to whole mount in situ hybridization with oxt mRNA probe (dorsal view, anterior to the top). oxt-positive neurons in the posterior tuberculum (PT) of otpa−/− mutants are marked by a dotted rectangle (B). Scale bar, 20 µm. (E,F) Box and whisker plots showing OXT cell number counts in the neurosecretory preoptic area (NPO; E) and in the PT (F) in various genotypes. The numbers of embryos used for the quantification are indicated above each box. In the NPO, otpa+/+;otpb+/+ fish differed significantly only from otpa−/−;otpb+/− (*p=0.013) and otpa−/−;otpb−/− (***p=0.000). In the PT otpa+/+;otpb+/+ differed significantly (***p=0.000) only from otpa−/−;otpb+/− and otpa−/−;otpb+/+.
