Conceptual advance and Impact6
Introduction would be more complete if expression status of cabp1a,b and cabp4a,b was also mentioned in the last sentence. Reference Di Donato, 2013 Plos ONE paper here. Also mention that embryonic cabp5a in zebrafish was not detected in that study. 1-2 additional sentences ought to be sufficient.
Conceptual advance and Impact4.5
Negative controls, which were aparently used to validate the ISH probes could be included in the figure.
Potential redundancy between the funtion of paralog genes may create a need for a double gene manipulation, as is the case with some zebrafish duplicated genes.
