- Circadian rhythms in the pineal organ persist in zebrafish larvae that lack ventral brainRamil R Noche
Department of Biology, University of Minnesota Duluth, 1035 Kirby Drive, Duluth, Minnesota 55812, USA
BMC Neurosci 12:7. 2011..Mammalian pineal rhythms are controlled almost exclusively by the SCN. In zebrafish and many other lower vertebrates, the pineal has an endogenous clock that is responsible in part for cyclic melatonin biosynthesis and gene expression...
- Original research in the classroom: why do zebrafish spawn in the morning?Jennifer O Liang
Department of Biology, University of Minnesota Duluth, 1035 Kirby Drive, Duluth, MN 55812, USA
Zebrafish 8:191-202. 2011..Our successes and failures carrying out original research as part of an undergraduate course should contribute to the growing approaches for using zebrafish to bring the excitement of experimental science to the classroom...
- Nodal signaling is required for closure of the anterior neural tube in zebrafishAllisan Aquilina-Beck
Department of Biology, Case Western Reserve University, 10900 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH, USA
BMC Dev Biol 7:126. 2007..Nodals are secreted signaling proteins with many roles in vertebrate development. Here, we identify a new role for Nodal signaling in regulating closure of the rostral neural tube of zebrafish...
- Using zebrafish to learn statistical analysis and Mendelian geneticsSamantha Lindemann
Department of Biology, University of Minnesota Duluth, Duluth, Minnesota 55812, USA
Zebrafish 8:41-55. 2011..Our plan is to have these protocols form the basis of a growing and adaptable educational tool available on the Zebrafish in the Classroom Web site...
