Expression and distribution of S100 protein in the nervous system of the adult zebrafish (Danio rerio)
TLDR
The functional role of S100 protein in both neurons and non‐neuronal cells of the zebrafish central nervous system remains to be elucidated, but present results might serve as baseline for future experimental studies using this teleost as a model. Expand
Expression of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor and TrkB in the Lateral Line System of Zebrafish During Development
TLDR
There is a parallel time-related decline in the expression of BDNF and TrkB in zebrafish, and the patterns of cell expression suggest that autocrine/paracrine mechanisms for this NT system might occur within the neuromasts. Expand
Expression and cell localization of brain‐derived neurotrophic factor and TrkB during zebrafish retinal development
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the pattern of expression of BDNF and TrkB in the retina of zebrafish remains unchanged during postembryonic development and adult life. Expand
The structure of the gas bladder of the spotted gar, Lepisosteus oculatus
TLDR
The structure of the GB is that of a membranous sac supported by a system of septa arising from the walls of a central duct that strongly suggests that GB function is tightly regulated. Expand
Morphological differences in adipose tissue and changes in BDNF/Trkb expression in brain and gut of a diet induced obese zebrafish model.
TLDR
An involvement of the BDNF/TrkB system in the regulation of food intake and energy balance in zebrafish, as in mammals is suggested. Expand
Cholecystokinin in White Sea Bream: Molecular Cloning, Regional Expression, and Immunohistochemical Localization in the Gut after Feeding and Fasting
TLDR
The results demonstrated two CCK isoforms in the hindgut of D.sargus, one of which (CCK-2) may be involved in the feedback control of uncompleted digestive processes, and a functional role alternative to regulation of digestive processes may be inferred for D. sargus CCK-1, since its expression was unaffected by feeding or fasting.

TRPV4 in the sensory organs of adult zebrafish
TLDR
The presence of TRPV4 in all sensory organs of adult zebrafish is demonstrated and is consistent with the multiple physiological functions suspected for trpv4 in mammals (mechanosensation, hearing, and temperature sensing), but furthermore suggest potential roles in olfaction and vision in zebra fish. Expand
Morphology of the tongue dorsal surface of gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata)
TLDR
The results demonstrate that in the gilthead seabream important mechanic and sensory roles are carried out by specific anatomical structures, which could give, together with further biochemical and physiological data, an important support with the aim of improving the nutrition of aquaculture species. Expand
Neurotrophin and Trk neurotrophin receptors in the inner ear of Salmo salar and Salmo trutta
TLDR
The present results demonstrate that, as in mammals and birds, the inner ear of teleosts expresses the components of the neurotrophin–Trk system, but their roles remain to be elucidated. Expand
