This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Morphological phenotypes of sna homozygous mutants.
  • Fig. S2. A minority of sna/sna embryos exhibit ventral flattening and limited MyoII apical concentration.
  • Fig. S3. sna mutants do not rescue in response to simple contact.
  • Fig. S4. twi mutants that are defective in sna expression that express Fog in the mesoderm lack Twist.
  • Fig. S5. Mechanical deformation fails to rescue twi mutants that are also defective in sna expression.
  • Fig. S6. Fog and MyoII localization is not altered by heat shock in sna mutant embryos.
  • Fig. S7. sna and sna Fog+ phenotypes predicted by simulations.
