Gam1 disrupts convergence and extension. a Examples of Keller sandwich explants prepared from embryos injected with (i) water, (ii) 2.5 ng Gam1 mRNA, (iii) 5 ng Gam1 mRNA. Explants from embryos injected with water (n = 17) or 2.5 ng Gam1 mRNA (n = 18) were measured to quantify effects on b convergence and c extension. The red lines designate the lengths measured in the explants. Center lines in plots show the medians; box limits indicate the 25th and 75th percentiles; whiskers extend 1.5 times the interquartile range from the 25th and 75th percentiles
