During the last decade, zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio) have emerged as a novel and attractive system to study embryogenesis and organogenesis in vertebrates. The main reason is that both extensive genetic studies and detailed embryologic analysis are possible using this small tropical fresh water teleost. However, in vitro analysis using cell culture or molecular genetics are still far less advanced than in other vertebrate systems. Here we report the generation and characterization of a… CONTINUE READING
