Table 2 Correlation between pineal and neural tube phenotypes in Nodal signaling mutants

From: Nodal signaling is required for closure of the anterior neural tube in zebrafish

  Neural tube morphology
Embryo Closed Open
sqtcz35/+ X sqtcz35/+   
   normal pineal 353* 0
   elongated/divided pineal 0 11
MZoepm134 0 55
  1. Embryos were fixed at 1 dpf and then assayed for expression of otx5 and wnt1. Pineal and neural tube phenotypes were scored from a dorsal view.
  2. *Embryos with a normal pineal morphology are a mixture of WT and sqt mutant embryos.
