The oropharyngeal cavity in fish supports a range of sensory modalities, including detection of chemical and mechanical stimuli. Taste buds are found throughout this tissue and may participate in both processes. We used confocal microscopy and immunohistochemistry to characterize the morphology of Merkel-like cells and their association with other cell types and nerve fibers of the taste bud in the vertebrate model, the zebrafish. In addition, we document procedures for the observation of these… CONTINUE READING
