The dorsal diencephalic conduction system of zebrafish as a model of vertebrate brain lateralisation
Lateralisation is an attractive and intriguing feature of the vertebrate CNS studied for decades in the different disciplines of the neurosciences. Due to the complexity of the phenomena and intrinsic limitations of the ...
Large-scale zebrafish embryonic heart dissection for transcriptional analysis
(Journal of Visualized Experiments, 2015-01)
The zebrafish embryonic heart is composed of only a few hundred cells, representing only a small fraction of the entire embryo. Therefore, to prevent the cardiac transcriptome from being masked by the global embryonic ...
Whole-body cortisol increases after direct and visual contact with a predator in zebrafish, Danio rerio
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-11-26)
Ornamental fish may be severely affected by a stressful environment. Stressors impair the immune response, reproduction and growth rate; thus, the identification of possible stressors will aid to improve the overall quality ...
The zebrafish world of colors and shapes: preference and discrimination
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. publishers, 2015-03-19)
Elongator subunit 3 (Elp3) Is required for Zebrafish trunk development
Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) are the most post-transcriptionally modified RNA species. Some of these modifications, especially the ones located in the anti-codon loop, are required for decoding capabilities of tRNAs. Such is the ...
Zebrafish as a model organism for nutrition and growth: Towards comparative studies of nutritional genomics applied to aquacultured fishes
Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a common research model in fish studies of toxicology, developmental biology, neurobiology and molecular genetics; it has been proposed as a possible model organism for nutrition and growth studies ...
Behavioral and molecular analysis of nicotine-conditioned place preference in zebrafish
(Public Library of Science, 2013-07)
Studies using mice and rats have demonstrated that nicotine induces a conditioned place preference (CPP), with more effective results obtained by using biased procedures. Zebrafish have also been used as a model system to ...
Zebrafish Models of Kidney Damage and Repair
The vertebrate kidney possesses the capacity to repair damaged nephrons, and this potential is conserved regardless of the complexity of species-specific kidneys. However, many aquatic vertebrates possess the ability to ...
Anticonvulsant effect of sodium cyclamate and propylparaben on pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures in zebrafish
(Wiley-liss, Div John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2017-04)
Screening for novel anticonvulsant drugs requires appropriate animal seizure models. Zebrafish provide small, accessible, and cost-efficient preclinical models applicable to high-throughput small molecule screening. Based ...
