    In: Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience, 2019, vol. 12, p. -

    Aquatic vertebrates possess diverse types of sensory cells in their skin to detect stimuli in the water. In the adult zebrafish, a common model organism, the presence of such cells in fins has only rarely been studied. Here, we identified scattered serotonin (5-HT)-positive cells in the epidermis of the caudal fin. These cells were distinct from keratinocytes as revealed by their low...

    In vivo quantification of mechanical properties of caudal fins in adult zebrafish

    In: Journal of Experimental Biology, 2018, vol. 221, no. 4, p. jeb171777

    Skip to Next SectionThe caudal fins of adult zebrafish are supported by multiple bony rays that are laterally interconnected by soft interray tissue. Little is known about the fin's mechanical properties that influence bending in response to hydrodynamic forces during swimming. Here, we developed an experimental setup to measure the elastic properties of caudal fins in vivo by applying...
