The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is an important animal model to study cell biology in vivo. Benefits of the zebrafish include a fully annotated reference genome, an easily manipulable genome (for example, by morpholino oligonucleotide or CRISPR-Cas9), and transparent embryos for noninvasive, real-time microscopy using fluorescent transgenic lines. Zebrafish have orthologues of most human septins, and studies using larvae were used to investigate the role of septins in vertebrate development. The… CONTINUE READING
