Reverse genetics tools in zebrafish: a forward dive into endocrinology


Sugano, Yuya; Neuhauss, Stephan C F (2013). Reverse genetics tools in zebrafish: a forward dive into endocrinology. General and Comparative Endocrinology, 188:303-308.

Abstract

The zebrafish is a powerful genetic model organism. In recent years, zebrafish has been increasingly used to model human diseases. Due to a number of recent technological advancements, the genetic tool box is now also stocked with sophisticated transgenic and reverse genetic tools. Here, we focus on both commonly used and recently established reverse genetic and transgenic tools available in zebrafish. These new developments make the zebrafish an even more attractive animal model in comparative endocrinology.
