Rooibos can help fight skin, liver, colon, and oesophageal cancers, as well as diabetes and obesity. With the help of our zebrafish model, we prove that rooibos tea can be effective drug treatment for diabetic patients.
Zebrafish embryos are exposed to industrial wastewater in a range of dilutions, demonstrating that they are a very sensitive creature to the toxins found in industrial effluent.
Zebrafish can be an effective animal model for neurodegenerative disease. Due to the transparency feature that is observed in zebrafish embryos, visualization of individual genes is possible through non-invasive imaging techniques.
Research study on the exposure of CBD in zebrafish states an increase in lifespan but with a significant reduction in fecundity.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It not only causes respiratory illness but also neurological problems. We are gonna further discuss anosmia (loss of smell) which is a common primary symptom in COVID 19 with the help of zebrafish.
The zebrafish which are in good condition are selected and a chemical mutagen is used to induce random point mutation. It provide a powerful system to model RP, and they have been used to model a number of human retinal-degenerative diseases.
Laboratories all over the world have been using zebrafish for various studies in a quest to understand human diseases at a molecular level.
Scientists have used inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) animal models for drug-induced, genetic engineering studies for over 100 years. No other model like zebrafish precisely matches the pathophysiology of IBD of humans. The immune system of zebrafish is very similar to that of humans. Zebrafish have served similar orthologs of human IBD susceptibility genes NOD1 and NOD2 and have orthologs of mammalian Toll-like receptors (TLRs).
The zebrafish which are in good condition are selected and a chemical mutagen is used to induce random point mutation and genotype screens are performed in the progeny to identify the progeny fish carrying a point mutation in gene associated with the desired diseases.
