Teleost fish are distinguished by their enormous potential for the generation of new cells in both the intact and the injured adult brain. Here, we present evidence that these cells are a genetic mosaic caused by somatic genomic alteration. Metaphase chromosome spreads from whole brains of the teleost Apteronotus leptorhynchus revealed an euploid complement(More)
Aneuploidy, caused by segregation defects during mitosis, has previously been identified in adult-born cells of mammals and teleosts. In the present study, we have examined the fate of these cells in the brain of the teleost fish Apteronotus leptorhynchus. By immunostaining against active caspase-3, we have shown that both cells with normal nuclear(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is a complex, multifactorial disorder influenced by the interaction of genetic, epigenetic, and environmental factors. Obesity increases the risk of contracting many chronic diseases or metabolic syndrome. Researchers have established several mammalian models of obesity to study its underlying mechanism. However, a lower vertebrate model(More)
