Fig. 1

Vascular endothelial growth factor Aa (vegfaa) deficiency disrupts myocardial and endocardial morphogenesis. (A–I) Fluorescence micrographs of the hearts of wild-type (A–C), vegfaa mutant (D–F), and vegfaa morphants (G–I) at 96 hpf (hours post-fertilization) with the background of Tg(myl7:mCherry)/Tg(kdrl:EGFP) transgenic fish. The whole heart is substantially small and linearized in the mutant and the morphant, and no cavity is visible inside the heart lumen. Scale bar: 50 μm (A– I); (J,K) In situ hybridization of vegfaa in wild-type embryos at 18-somite stage. vegfaa is expressed in anterior lateral plate mesoderm as indicated by the arrow. (J) Lateral views, (K) Dorsal views with the anterior at the top. Scale bar: 200 μm (J,K). WT, wild-type; mo, morpholino
