Effects of thyroxine (T4) and methimazole (MMI) on the development of the zebrafish immune system were investigated using continuous immersion treatment experiments. The effects of the treatments on thymus development were determined using computer-aided thymus morphometric analyses on in situ hybridization serial sections of the thymus while the effects on immune-related gene expression levels were monitored using quantitative real-time PCR. The findings indicate that thymus development and… CONTINUE READING
