Phenotypes of identified mutants. (A) A larryhi409 mutant on day 5 shows kidney cyst (arrow) and body curvature. (B,C) Cross-section of the glomerular (arrow)-tubular (arrowhead) region of wild-type (B) and larryhi409 (C) embryos at 50 hpf (hour post fertilization). (D) pkd2 morphant at 53 hpf shows kidney cyst (arrow) and body curvature. nc, notochord; wt, wild type; mut, mutant; control, embryo injected with standard control morpholino oligo; mph, morphant.

hi409/IFT81 is widely expressed. (A) In situ hybridization for hi409/IFT81 in an embryo at the eight-somite stage (8S), hi409/IFT81 is enriched in the notochord (arrow). (B) In embryos at 25 hpf, hi409/IFT81 is enriched in the brain ventricle (arrow). (C) In embryos at 34 hpf, hi409/IFT81 is enriched in the otic vesicle (arrow) and slightly in the pronephric duct (arrowhead).

Anatomical Terms:
Stage Range: 5-9 somites to Prim-15

Ciliary defects in scorpionhi459. (A) The pronephric duct region (arrow) in a wild-type embryo at 50 hpf reacts strongly with an antibody against acetylated tubulin. (B) Confocal image shows cilia stained with this antibody in the pronephric duct of a wild-type embryo at 24 hpf. (D) Defect of the cilia in scorpionhi459 at 50 hpf; (D) enlarged view of C. wt, wild type; 459, scorpionhi459.

Pronephric ducts. (A,B) Cross-section through pronephric ducts (arrow on the right side; encircled on the left) in wild-type (wt) and larryhi409 mutant (409) embryos. (C,D) Dorsal view of the pronephric ducts stained with α6F. nc, notochord.
