Why use zebrafish？
Zebrafish is a powerful and versatile model organism that is ideal for basic and applied biomedical researchers.
The combination of gene editing techniques with fast, externally developed and transparent zebrafish embryos makes zebrafish an important model system for studying vertebrate development. Zebrafish has been very successful in neurodevelopmental research models.
In addition to its rapid development, zebrafish have a powerful ability to regenerate or replace many cells and tissues that mammals cannot repair, including appendages, heart, brain, and spinal cord, as well as sensory cells in the eyes and ears. However, the use of conditional knockout model technology (inducible expression of Cre or Cas9 enzyme) in zebrafish enables time-specific control of gene expression in target cells, allowing more specific localization of genes in regeneration features.
Both larvae and adult zebrafish have many behaviors worth studying. Among the well-studied behaviors, including startle response and visual response. Zebrafish are also used to study other more complex behaviors such as sleep/awakening, learning and memory, exercise, and emotional behaviors like depression and the effects of antidepressants.
Zebrafish is a powerful model of many different types of cancer in the laboratory. With the further development of the ability to use genome editing techniques, the zebrafish model will be able to study more diseases.
Some early studies of zebrafish include the use of them to screen for potential carcinogens or teratogenic effects. Large-scale pharmacological screening of zebrafish disease models can be performed by simply placing test compounds in water, which provides a powerful platform for therapeutic discovery.
