We generated smaller zebrafish by removing 30% of their cells at the blastula stages and found that these embryos developed into normally patterned individuals. Strikingly, the proportions of all germ layers adjusted to the new embryo size within 2 hours after cell removal. As Nodal-Lefty signalling controls germ-layer patterning, we performed a computational screen for scale-invariant models of this activator-inhibitor system. This analysis predicted that the concentration of the highly diffusive inhibitor Lefty increases in smaller embryos, leading to a decreased Nodal activity range and contracted germ-layer dimensions. In vivo studies confirmed that Lefty concentration increased in smaller embryos, and embryos with reduced Lefty levels or with diffusion-hindered Lefty failed to scale their tissue proportions. These results reveal that size-dependent inhibition of Nodal signalling allows scale-invariant patterning.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Rogers, Katherine W.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Schier, Alexander F.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Rogers, Katherine W.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Bläßle, Alexander</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Müller, Patrick</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Müller, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Soh, Gary H.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-04T09:49:21Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Almuedo-Castillo, María</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schier, Alexander F.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Almuedo-Castillo, María</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Marcon, Luciano</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56055"/> <dc:creator>Mörsdorf, David</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Marcon, Luciano</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Scale-invariant patterning by size-dependent inhibition of Nodal signalling</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-04T09:49:21Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
