图2. Morpholino Knockdown 靶点位置示意图。The zebrafish gene-X was targeted by three specific morpholino antisense strategies to prevent either the translation of the zebrafish gene (ATG-MO) or proper splicing of exon 3 (E3I3-MO).
图3. Panels A through H show lateral views of control MO injected zebrafish embryos (Panel A and Panel E) and embryos injected with gene-X morpholino oligonucleotides (MO) (Panel B through C, Panel F through G), gene-X-e3i3-MO plus nonmutant zebrafish gene-X (Panel D and Panel H). Coinjection of nonmutant zebrafish gene-X mRNA rescued U-shaped somites (red arrow) and curved body axis (blue dotted line) in gene-X morphants at 52 hpf. The bar graph in Panel I shows the percentage of embryos with development defects.Panels J Effectiveness of gene-X knockdown was confirmed by RT-PCR and sanger sequencing. hpf, hours post fertilization.
图4. Endogenous shha, ptch1, ptch2, sufu, gli1, gli2a, gli2b, and gli3 in wild-type control and geneX morphants assessed by qRT-PCR (n = 100 individual embryos). geneX fine-tunes Hedgehog patterning activity maybe through a novel regulatory feedback loop.
图5. GeneX knock down inhibits the trunk angiogenesis in zebrafish. (A-D) Representative fluorescent images of zebrafish embryos at 32h post-fertilization (hpf). (C-E) Compared with wild-type control, embryos injected with geneX-MO present a lower number of incomplete ISVs and only occasional sprouts (asterisk) of dorsal aorta. The boxed regions are shown at higher magnification in the right panels. DLAV, dorsal longitudinal anastomotic vessels; ISV, intersegmental vessels; DA, dorsal aorta; PCV, posterior cardinal vein.
图6. Morpholino knock down of geneX induces potent CNS-specific apoptosis. Wild-type control embryos and embryos injected with geneX-MO were stained with acridine orange (AO) at 32hpf. Apoptotic cells are visible as black spots, and less bright homogenous black staining is unspecific background staining. (A-B) Uninjected wild-type control zebrafish exhibited few or no apoptotic cells in CNS (central nervous system). In contrast, significantly increased staining was observed throughout the CNS in zebrafish injected with geneX-MO (C-D). The blue boxed regions are shown at higher magnification in the right panels. A-D: lateral view, anterior, left.
图7. GeneX knock down induces potent ototoxicity in zebrafish. Wild-type control embryos and embryos injected with geneX-MO were stained with the mitochondrial potentiometric dye DASPEI at 6-dpf. Hair cells stereotypically located on the lateral line were stained as green dots (white arrow). Uninjected wild-type control zebrafish exhibited normal hair cell number. In contrast, significantly decreased hair cell staining was observed in zebrafish injected with geneX-MO. Fluorescent DASPEI images were inverted for particle analysis. The fluorescence particle signal was quantified using morphometric analysis. dpf, days post fertilization.

Compared with uninjected wild-type control embryos, nonmutant zebrafish bmp10 overexpression causes decreased body length (black dotted line) and curved body axis (blue dotted line) in zebrafish . The bar graph in Panel D through E show the percentage and body length of embryos with development defects. hpf, hours post fertilization.

Red arrow indicates haemorrhage in the tail (B). (C-H) Compared with wild-type control, nonmutant zebrafish bmp10 mRNA (200pg) injection present a lower number of incomplete ISVs and only occasional sprouts (asterisk) of dorsal aorta. The red boxed regions are shown at higher magnification in the right panels.
