We used the Nadia, Gaighatta, Scientific Hatcheries, and TM1 zebrafish (Danio rerio) strains to test the hypothesis that variation among populations influences the behavioral and transcriptional responses to selenium supplementation. When fed a diet with control levels of selenium, zebrafish strains differed significantly in behavior, characterized as their mean horizontal and vertical swimming positions within the tank. The four strains also differed in brain expression of selenoprotein P1a… CONTINUE READING
