The Xenopus tropicalis dwarf mutant yodaa (bottom) and a wild-type sibling (top) are stained with anti-Laminin 1 antibody to highlight the boundaries between developing muscle blocks. The yodaa locus was identified in a screen for genetic lesions affecting amphibian early development. (See Goda et al.)
