Chemical effects on dye efflux activity in live zebrafish embryos and on zebrafish Abcb4 ATPase activity
(Elsevier Science, 2020-12)
ATP‐binding cassette (ABC) transporter proteins include efflux pumps that confer multixenobiotic resistance to zebrafish embryos, a valuable toxico/pharmacological model. Here, we established an automated microscopy‐based ...
Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) 2 and 4.2 are expressed in the retina of the adult zebrafish
(Springer Verlag, 2015)
IMPDH forms the cytoophidium in zebrafish
(Ondine Cleaver, 2021-05-25)
Inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) catalyzes the rate-limiting step in de novo guanine nucleotide biosynthesis. Its activity is negatively regulated by the binding of GTP. IMPDH can form a membraneless subcellular ...
Early Life Stage Assays in Zebrafish
Fish embryo toxicity (FET) test using zebrafish (Danio rerio) has been established as an alternative assay to animal experimentation. The FET assay enables the assessment of multiple morphological endpoints during the ...
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 ...
Experimental model of hepatic steatosis by fructose in adult zebrafish: A pilot study
Peptide Profile of Zebrafish Brain in a 6-OHDA-Induced Parkinson Model
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder mainly attributed to the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, which leads to uncontrolled voluntary movements causing tremors, ...
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 ...
