Zebrafish are ideally suited for the live imaging of early immune cell compartments. Macrophages that initially appear on the yolk surface prior to the onset of circulation are the first functional immune cells within the embryo, predating the emergence of the first granulocytic cells-the heterophilic neutrophils. Both cell types have been shown in zebrafish to contribute to a robust early innate immune system, capable of clearing systemic infections and participating in wound healing. Early… CONTINUE READING
