Zebrafish Wdr18 Expression

wdr18 expression is detected around the Kupffer's vesicle (white arrowhead) at the 6-somite stage. Inset is an overexposed magnified image showing elevated wdr18 expression around the KV. (See also full figure)

  • Kupffer's vesicle - (ciliated organ of asymmetry, primitive node) a transient epithelial fluid-filled sac located midventrally posterior to the yolk cell or its extension. The vesicle has been described as equivalent to the primitive node for establishing embryo left-right (L-R) axis.
  • Wdr18 - is a member of the WD-repeat protein family found in all eukaryotes. The WD repeat consists of a 44 to 60 amino acid residue sequence that typically contains a GH dipeptide located 11 to 24 residues from its N-terminus and ends with a WD dipeptide at its C-terminus. Wdr18 is maternally expressed from the 1–4 cell stage.
