Zebrafish- A Model Organism for Regeneration Studies
ByDr. M. Syed Ali, Ph.DDr. V. Anuradha, Ph.D
This book is a prelude by the authors to expose the advantages and application of Zebrafish as model organism to study various aspects of human diseases. The book starts with the introduction about the biology and lifecycle of Zebrafish that makes it suitable in a comfortable and ease way to be applied in research. The next chapter emphasizes on the methodology and application of germ-cell transplantation in this model organism. The third chapter projects the unique characteristics of this lower vertebrate organism as model system and its implementation in current scenario research for various human diseases. The next two chapters explore the genetic aspects of Zebra fish in the regeneration studies of hepatocytes and cardiomyocytes. Our goal in these chapters is to complement enormous researchers whose work deliberately exposed and reached Zebra fish to current day biologist and geneticist as a vital tool. The book finally concludes with two Appendixes that showcase the practical application of biosynthesized nanoparticle in the regeneration of Zebra fish heart and liver, carried out by our Masters students. We hope that the information presented in these chapters will definitely attract many of the budding researchers to concentrate on Zebra fish as an alternate to mice model system for their studies. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to all the contributors for their diligent effort made for the outcome of this book.
