Five Gy Gamma ray challenge reduced e embryos survival rate from 98.7 down to 94.5 at 120 h post fertilization however, MET administration improved e survival rate up to around 97 (Fig. 1A).Fur ermore, irradiated embryos showed lower hatching rate (around 88 vs 98) and slower hatching speed, . Materials and me ods Zebrafish husbandry and e generation of Tg(flk1:EGFP) lines. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos were obtained from e mixed wild-type strain in e laboratory and raised at 28°C as previously described (Westerfield, 1993).Approximately 6.5 kb of upstream sequence of e zebrafish flk1 gene (Liao et al., 1997. ompson et al., 1998) was amplified from wild-type genomic. e group found at 53 of zebrafish embryos exposed to 1.5 mg/L 3,4‐DCA at 26°C displayed teratogenic effects, compared wi only 5 of zebrafish exposed at 28°C (Beekhuijzen et al. ). ese results suggest at ZEBDET at 26°C be more sensitive an at 28°C, possibly because a specific developmental stage sensitive. 23, · Zebra fish, any member of ei er of two unrelated groups of fishes, e freshwater species in e genus Danio (family Cyprinidae. order Cypriniformes) and e saltwater species in e genus Pterois (family Scorpaenidae. order Scorpaeniformes). e zebra danio (Danio rerio), a .

Introduction. S mall freshwater fishes such as zebrafish (Danio rerio) are increasingly being used as model organisms for biomedical research, offering sequenced genomes and a rich repertoire of genetic, molecular, and cellular manipulation tools. 1,2 A unique set of properties (small size, numerous offspring, optical transparency of e embryo, amenability to genetic and chemical screens) has. 15, · INTRODUCTION. Zebrafish, Danio rerio (Hamilton 1822), have become a valuable model for investigating e development and molecular genetics of e vertebrate inner ear (Whitfield, 2002. Nicolson, 2005). e early development of e zebrafish inner ear is similar to at of o er vertebrates (Bang et al., 2001. Whitfield et al., 2002. Riley and Phillips, 2003) and its sensory hair . e goals of is study were to assess e respiratory consequences of exposing adult zebrafish Danio rerio to chronic changes in water gas composition (hypoxia, hyperoxia or hypercapnia) and to determine if any ensuing effects could be related to morphological changes in branchial chemoreceptors. To accomplish ese goals, we first modified and validated an established non-invasive technique. Severe hypoxia elicits aquatic surface respiration (ASR) behaviour in many species of fish, where ventilation of e gills at e air–water interface improves O2 uptake and survival. ASR is an important adaptation at have given rise to air brea ing in vertebrates. e neural substrate of is behaviour, however, is not defined. We characterized ASR in developing and adult zebrafish. 18, · Zebrafish imaging wi micro-CT, for high resolution, sub-micron 3D images.
