The skeleton of adult zebrafish fins comprises lepidotrichia, which are dermal bones of the rays, and actinotrichia, which are non-mineralized spicules at the distal margin of the appendage. Little is known about the regenerative dynamics of the actinotrichia- specific structural proteins called Actinodins. Here, we used immunofluorescence analysis to determine the contribution of two...
