    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...

    Zebrafish caudal fin angiogenesis assay—advanced quantitative assessment including 3-way correlative microscopy

    Hlushchuk, Ruslan ; Brönnimann, Daniel ; Shokiche, Carlos Correa ; Schaad, Laura ; Triet, Ramona ; Jazwinska, Anna ; Tschanz, Stefan A. ; Djonov, Valentin

    Background: Researchers evaluating angiomodulating compounds as a part of scientific projects or pre-clinical studies are often confronted with limitations of applied animal models. The rough and insufficient early-stage compound assessment without reliable quantification of the vascular response counts, at least partially, to the low transition rate to clinics. Objective: To establish an...
