Additional file 7: Figure S6.

The complete set of 28 embryos used to deduce the maturing pattern of eve1 expression as presented in main text Figure  10. These embryos have been put into a developmental series using both morphological staging markers and the transitions in the eve pattern itself. Embryos A, D, G, K, O and S are the embryos indicated with the same letters in Figure  10, selected from this full series. The correspondence of bands at the different stages was inferred with reference to the full series, allowing for example the conclusion that the Mx2 band (blue arrow in Figure  10, red arrow in Additional file 7: Figure S6) moves anteriorly during stages 2 and 3. Similar, though less extensive, series were used to infer the correspondence of Delta and eve2 expression patterns between stages. Each embryo is presented in a single row. Columns 1 and 2 - lateral views; columns 2 and 3 - ventral views; columns 4 and 5 posterior views; paired nuclear fluorescence and bright field images.
