The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is named for the five uniform, pigmented, horizontal, blue stripes on the side of the body, which are reminiscent of a zebra's stripes, and which extend to the end of the caudal fin. Its shape is fusiform and laterally compressed, with its mouth directed upwards. The male is torpedo-shaped, with gold stripes between the blue stripes; the female has a larger, whitish.

The zebrafish is named for its five uniform, horizontal blue stripes on the side of its body, all of which extend from the gill cover back to the tail. The male is torpedo shaped and has gold stripes between its blue stripes; the female has a larger, whitish belly and has silver stripes instead of gold.
The zebrafish or zebra danio, Danio rerio, is a coldwater fish belonging to the minnow family (). It is a popular aquarium fish, frequently sold under the trade name zebra danio, and is also an important model organism in scientific research. Taxonomy. The zebrafish is a derived member of the genus Danio.It has a sister group relationship with Danio kyathit.

Panels A and B show the dye coloration in wild-type zebrafish embryos when either slc24a5 (Panel A) or dct are expressed (Panel B). The dct protein is an enzyme that initiates an important step in melanin production and resides inside melanophores and the pigment tissues of the eye. Because the dye distribution is similar in both cases, we can conclude that, similar to dct, the expression of.

The original zebrafish (or zebra danio, Danio rerio) is a native of rivers in India and Bangladesh.It measures three centimeters long and has gold and dark blue stripes. In 1999, Dr. Zhiyuan Gong and his colleagues at the National University of Singapore were working with a gene that encodes the green fluorescent protein (GFP), originally extracted from a jellyfish, that naturally produced.
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) nanoprobes (NPs) comprising gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) as enhancing substrate and nonfluorescent Raman labels were synthesized and microinjected into zebrafish embryos at the one-cell stage. Raman mapping was performed to assess their distribution in various cell-types and tissues of developing embryo at.
The Golden Zebra Danio is a specialty bred color variation of the Zebra Danio and many are produced for the aquarium industry. Other common names they are known by include Gold Zebra Danio, Gold Danio, and Gold Zebrafish. It has also been developed as a long fin variety called the Longfin Gold Zebra Danio or Longfin Gold Danio. There are no wild populations of these color morphs.
Gold nanoparticle’s utilization of targeting, imaging, and therapeutic mediums has increased dramatically in the last decade. Gold nanorods are frequently created following a seed-mediated approach whereby gold salts are catalyzed by the addition of small gold spheres (seeds) in the vicinity of a weak reducing agent and the growth directing surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB).
We describe a protocol for culturing neurons from transgenic zebrafish embryos to investigate the subcellular distribution and protein aggregation status of neurodegenerative disease-causing proteins. The utility of the protocol was demonstrated on cell cultures from zebrafish that transgenically express disease-causing variants of human fused in sarcoma (FUS) and ataxin-3 proteins, in order.
Danio rerio commonly known as the Zebrafish is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae), commonly kept in aquaria and used for scientific research. Zebra Danios are of no.
ZeGlobalTox: multi-organ toxicity testing in zebrafish. Overview; Impact; Publications; There is increasing recognition that new approaches are needed to bridge the gap between preclinical in vitro and in vivo testing to reduce costly late-stage attrition of new drugs. Pharmaceutical companies and regulatory agencies are addressing this problem by searching for novel models and introducing.
Project Summary AbstractLaboratories around the world have produced tens of thousands of distinct zebrafish lines that serve as model organisms for genetic and biomedical research that applies to human genetics and diseasesMaintaining all these valuable genotypes is expensive and beyond the capacity of even the largest stock centersOne solution is the cryopreservation of zebrafish spermeggs.
Here, we used a gold nanobeacon designed to specifically silence the enhanced green fluorescence protein (EGFP) mRNA in embryos of a fli-EGFP transgenic zebrafish line, while simultaneously.
Zebrafish embryos can attain a stable cryogenic state by microinjection of cryoprotectants followed by rapid cooling, but the massive size of the embryo has consistently led to failure during the convective warming process. Here we address this zebrafish cryopreservation problem by using gold nanorods (GNRs) to assist in the warming process.
Males are torpedo-shaped and have gold stripes between the blue stripes; females have a larger, whitish belly and have silver stripes instead of gold. Adult females will exhibit a small genital papilla in front of the anal fin origin. The zebrafish can grow to 6.4 centimetres (2.5 in), although it is uncommon for them to grow past 4 cm in.
Among the fish species most commonly used in the aquarium you can find guppy, platy, the swordtail, neon blue, neon cardinalis, the scalar, the discus, oscar, Siamese fighting fish, gourami, the macropod, zebrafish, the bearded, the killie, the armored catfish, grouper, goldfish and koi (Japanese carp). 25% of tropical freshwater fish sold are guppy and blue neon.
