Zebrafish embryos with homozygous alleles of truncated fat1a display coloboma. CRISPR/Cas9-mediated introduction of frame-shift mutations in FAT1 C-terminal resulted in optic fissure closure defects (a and e, scale bar is 0.1 mm). A higher magnification of eye depicting fused margins in WT and unfused margins in homozygous mutant (*, b and f, scale bar is 0.05 mm). Sagittal sections of zebrafish embryos (24–30 hpf) followed by toludene blue staining showing organization of the optic cup (c and g, scale bar is 50 µm). Higher magnification of the optic cup shows morphology of optic fissure margins in WT and homozygous mutant (dh, scale bar is 20 µm)

Morpholino mediated knockdown of zebrafish fat1a causes coloboma Morpholino mediated knockdown of fat1a consistently resulted in coloboma at two different concentrations (a, b, d, f and h), whereas injection of similar amount of control morpholino did not cause coloboma (a, b, c, e and g). Fused optic fissure margins of zebrafish larvae (day 3 post fertilization) can be observed (e and g; sagittal section) after histology and toludene blue staining, whereas the fissure margins remained unfused in fat1a morphant embryos (f, and h).
