  1. 1. Translating Cardiac and Cardiometabolic GWAS Using Zebrafish

    Author : Benedikt von der Heyde; Marcel den Hoed; Anastasia Emmanouilidou; Erik Ingelsson; Shawn Burgess; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified thousands of loci associated with cardiac and cardiometabolic traits. However, the trait-associated variants usually do not clearly point to causal gene(s), mechanism(s) or tissue(s). Model systems that allow for a comprehensive and quick candidate gene screening are necessary, ideally in vivo. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of leptin in zebrafish (Danio rerio) : Novel insights into appetite regulation and reproduction

    Author : Emmanouil Tsakoumis; Monika Schmitz; Tatjana Haitina; Åsa Wallén-Mackenzie; Ana Gómez Peris; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zebrafish; leptin; appetite; GRN; brain; reproduction; oocyte maturation; ovulation; Biology with specialization in Comparative Physiology; Biologi med inriktning mot jämförande fysiologi;

    Abstract : The hormone leptin is a peripheral metabolic signal and an important regulator of energy balance. In mammals, leptin acts on the appetite centers in the hypothalamus, causing anorexigenic functions by inhibiting food intake. It is also considered as a link between the nutritional status and the endocrine reproductive axis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational methods for assessing chemical risk : focusing on toxicokinetic modelling in zebrafish (danio rerio)

    Author : Ioana C. Chelcea; Patrik L. Andersson; Timo Hamers; Jessica Legradi; Stefan Örn; Carolina Vogs; Nynke Kramer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; PBTK; Toxicokinetics; Endocrine disruptors; bisphenols; zebrafish; embryo; Toxicology; toxikologi;

    Abstract : New chemicals are constantly produced and large data gaps exist on hazards of currently used industrial chemicals, stressing the need for rapid, ethically sound and cost-efficient hazard assessment methods. Traditional methods for effect assessment based on animal testing, do not meet these requirements and thus the toxicology field has been moving towards the development of new approach methodologies which include in vitro approaches but also computational methods.

  4. 4. Musculoskeletal Development in Jawed Vertebrates : Gene function, cis-regulation, and 3D phenotypes in zebrafish

    Author : Jake Leyhr; Tatjana Haitina; Sophie Sanchez; Per Ahlberg; Chrissy Hammond; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nkx3.2; Gdf5; Mkx; zebrafish; jaw joint; skeleton; fin development; cartilage; tendon; ligament; enhancer; CRISPR Cas9; mutant; microCT; synchrotron; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi;

    Abstract : Vertebrate skeletons are an intricate framework of bony and cartilaginous structures that form through carefully orchestrated developmental processes, guided by interacting genetic pathways that regulate cellular differentiation, migration, and tissue morphogenesis. The specific timing and localisation of gene expression shapes the diverse array of skeletal elements, from the flexible cartilages of the embryonic stage to the hardened bones that provide structural support in adulthood, and the joints and connective tissues that articulate the musculoskeletal system.

  5. 5. The role of Nkx3.2 and Gdf5 during zebrafish skeletal development

    Author : Laura Waldmann; Tatjana Haitina; Abigail Tucker; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Nkx3.2; Gdf5; zebrafish; jaw joint; joints; axial skeleton; appendicular skeleton; fin; enhancer conservation; CRISPR Cas9; OPT;

    Abstract : The vertebrate skeleton is composed of bony and cartilaginous structures that are developed under the control of numerous genetic networks. The transcription factor Nkx3. READ MORE
