    ..This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: 12th European Symposium on Calcium. ..
  2. Cheng C, Hui C, Strahle U, Cheng S. Identification and expression of zebrafish Iroquois homeobox gene irx1. Dev Genes Evol. 2001;211:442-4 pubmed
    ..By 24 hpf, irx1 expression was clearly detected in the acousticovestibual ganglia, tectum, tegmentum, cerebellum and rhombomere 1 but not in rhombomere 2 or mid-hindbrain boundary. ..
  3. Cheng C, Yan C, Choy S, Hui M, Hui C, Cheng S. Zebrafish homologue irx1a is required for the differentiation of serotonergic neurons. Dev Dyn. 2007;236:2661-7 pubmed
    ..However, irx1a morphants do not show a reduction of the progenitors of 5HT neurons. Hence, irx1a is not required for the initial specification but it is required for the complete differentiation of 5HT neurons. ..
  4. Du L, Xu J, Li X, Ma N, Liu Y, Peng J, et al. Rumba and Haus3 are essential factors for the maintenance of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells during zebrafish hematopoiesis. Development. 2011;138:619-29 pubmed publisher
    ..Our study identifies Rumba and Haus3 as two essential regulators of HSPC maintenance during zebrafish fetal hematopoiesis. ..

    ..The observed disruption of GnRH and GtHs can be further related to the subsequent disruption in both levels and balance sex steroid hormones. ..
  6. Li X, Lan Y, Xu J, Zhang W, Wen Z. SUMO1-activating enzyme subunit 1 is essential for the survival of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells in zebrafish. Development. 2012;139:4321-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Our findings demonstrate that sae1 is essential for the maintenance of HSPCs during fetal hematopoiesis in zebrafish. ..
  7. Zhen F, Lan Y, Yan B, Zhang W, Wen Z. Hemogenic endothelium specification and hematopoietic stem cell maintenance employ distinct Scl isoforms. Development. 2013;140:3977-85 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, our data suggest that a defined hemogenic endothelial population preset by scl-? supports the deterministic emergence of HSCs, and unravel the cellular mechanisms by which scl isoforms regulate HSC development. ..
  8. Yan B, Han P, Pan L, Lu W, Xiong J, Zhang M, et al. IL-1? and reactive oxygen species differentially regulate neutrophil directional migration and Basal random motility in a zebrafish injury-induced inflammation model. J Immunol. 2014;192:5998-6008 pubmed publisher
    ..In addition, Il-1? overexpressing Tg(hsp70:(m)il-1?_eGFP;lyz:DsRed2)hkz10t;nz50 transgenic zebrafish provides a useful animal model for the study of chronic inflammatory disorder and for anti-inflammatory drug discovery. ..
