New approaches for studying the permeability of fish embryos: toward successful cryopreservation.


This paper describes some new approaches for understanding the permeability of teleost embryos. The dechorionated zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio) was used as a model for basic studies of water and cryoprotectant permeability. These embryos are composed of two compartments, a large yolk (surrounded by the yolk syncytial layer) and differentiating blastoderm… (More)
