Pigment Pattern of npm during Development and in Double Mutants
(A) Wild-type iridophores appear as a dense sheet along the horizontal myoseptum (stages PB and PR); they spread dorsally and ventrally where they form secondary light stripes (stages J and J++) .
(B) In npm mutants iridophores fail to form compact sheets. Scale bars, 250 μm.
(C) pfe mutant (top panel) compared to npm;pfeffer double mutant.
(D) shd mutant (top panel) compared to npm;shd double mutant.
