Abstract

Developing embryos of the self-fertilising mangrove killifish Kryptolebias marmoratus. PTU-treated embryo (left) lacking melanin pigmentation and a normal embryo (right), 10 days post-fertilisation. Due to its ability to self-fertilise, this species proves to be a highly useful embryological model with unique genetics. From Mourabit et al., Developmental Dynamics 240:1694–1704, 2011.
