FoxP-KO: the homozigous FoxP-KO (with NO Gal4 and NO GFP) had a green signal, it means that the dsRed gives problems. I thus removed it. Also, in really nice dissections, I don´t see the phenotype I was seeing before. The brain looks fairly normal. it could than be that i wasn´t disecting well enough
Here´s a picture of a WTB fly and a foxP-KO-homozigous. I dissected all together and I did not know which one was which. But I manage to recognize them, which means that they are well recognizable. Just to be sure i will do that another time. (Also in order to have better dissections).
The distance between the two “hemispheres” in the WTB has an average of 5,4 um (n=3)
The distance between the two “hemispheres” in the KO has an average of 32,2 um (n=2)
The length of the protocerebral bridge in the WTB has an average of 95,7 um (n=3)
The the protocerebral bridge in the KO has an average of 140,3 um (n=2)
