sox10 mutants_9 dpf
Medaka wild-type (WS3 Nagoya) 9 dpf larvae show a pigment pattern as having horizontal melanophore stripes and yellowish in-betweens (xanthophores) with leucophores and iridophores (not apparent in the photo). The sox10b-/- (MT1192 sox10b^N108S) larvae show a normal pigment pattern. The sox10a-/- (MT1196 sox10a^E2del16) larvae show severe reduction in melanophore, iridophore and xanthophore numbers. The sox10a-/-sox10-/- double mutants (MT1189 sox10a^E2del16;sox10b^N108S) lack all chromatophores, except that leucophores on the head are retained.
