Fig. 5. Effects of dril1 morpholino on X. tropicalis development. NF21 embryos injected with 20 ng of a control morpholino, anterior to left (A), or dril1 morpholino (B). The latter embryos failed to complete gastrulation. Uninjected tadpoles (C), tadpoles injected with 3 ng dril1 morpholino (D), morphants rescued by coinjection with 300 pg δ5′dril-MT RNA (E). Rescue of a more severe morphant phenotype (F–H). Uninjected embryos (F), embryos injected with 6 ng dril1 morpholino (G), embryos rescued with 260 pg δ5′dril-MT RNA (H); note elongated anteroposterior axes, and more developed head structures, as evidenced by presence of cement gland. White arrowheads in G mark epidermal lesions.
