Transient expression of mitfa::eGFP. a-b To test a cell-type specific promoter, we cloned a 1.1kB promoter fragment of A. citrinellus mitfa (a), a melanoblast marker, upstream of eGFP (b). c At 7dpf, GFP was expressed in dendritic cells on the head (white arrows) and trunk region (black arrows). d On the trunk, cells expressing GFP were mainly located dorsally (black arrows), similar to expression patterns seen in zebrafish [33]. A few cells could be found more ventrally, entangled with melanophores in the ventral melanophore stripe (white arrows). Scale bar = 500 μm
