Morpholino knockdown of claudin 5a in zebrafish embryos results in BRB breakdown. Cldn-5a was knocked down by injecting morpholino-cldn5a into double transgenic l-fabp:DBP-EGFP;flk1:mCherry embryos at the 2-cell stage. At 4 dpf, leakage of DBP-EGFP(green) from the hyaloid vasculature (red) was observed. A 5 bp-mismatched Morpholino was injected as control and showed an intact BRB.
