The tiny, striped fish, each just a few centimeters long, has been gaining in popularity for research they reproduce and grow quickly-a female lays hundreds of eggs at a time-and it's easy for scientists to keep huge numbers of them in simple aquariums in the lab. Types of diseases - research papers on types of diseases look into the various ailments that can harm the physical, mental, and social well being of human beings typhoid - typhoid makes an interesting research topic for a disease that is not well-known. Aims the aim of this project is to reduce the use of mammalian models in inflammatory lung disease research by establishing zebrafish gill tissue as an alternative model to examine basic mechanisms and pathway biology of severe asthma. We (the human species) and zebrafish share 70% of the same genes plus, 84% of our genes known to be associated with human genetic disease have a zebrafish counterpart and that's just the beginning. These developments have allowed scientists to leverage the many advantages of the zebrafish system to address many important questions in biology and human genetics and disease however, there are few accepted and established standards for husbandry, management, and care for the fish in laboratory settings and even fewer comprehensive and.
The hyderabad based center for cellular and micro biology (ccmb) has set up first of its kind zebra fish facility in the country to conduct research on zebra fish and find out curative solutions for human diseases such as cancer, neural conditions and eye diseases. The largest zebra is the grevy's zebra, according to the san diego zoo it weighs 770 to 990 lbs (350 to 450 kilograms) and is around 5 feet (15 meters) tall from shoulder to hoof. We had an awesome field trip to the nih human genome lab in bethesda last wednesday middle school girls and adults on the field trip sponsored by the every girl can learn institute saw close-up the institute's ongoing research on human diseases using zebra fish.
Zebrafish (danio rerio) are small shoaling cyprinid fish native to the flood plains of the indian subcontinentthe natural range of d rerio is centered around the ganges and brahmaputra river basins in north-eastern india, bangladesh, and nepal, although in the past specimens have also been collected in the indus, cauvery, pennar, godavari, and mahanadi river basins. Search zfin go genes / markers / clones nomenclature conventions. Go zebra fish hidden away in a balmy, windowless room on the fifth floor of a research building on the cedars-sinai campus, thousands of fish are swimming tirelessly in small plastic aquariums. The zebrafish (danio rerio) is a freshwater fish belonging to the minnow family of the order cypriniformes native to the himalayan region, it is a popular aquarium fish, frequently sold under the trade name zebra danio (and thus often called a tropical fish although not native to the tropics. Another attractive benefit of zebra- fish is the ease at which one can apply chemicals for toxicology, mutagenicity studies, or high throughput screening for drug discovery in mammalian species, the majority of chemicals are manually injected into individual animals.
One of the most common diseases in zebra finches is intestinal inflammation or enteritis the symptoms of this disease are diarrhea, apathetic behavior, weight loss, and drowsiness the cause of this ailment is often off food, sudden temperature changes, germs such as escherichia coli, pasteurella and salmonella. Quarantine all new fish for a period of three weeks, improve the water quality of the tank, and reduce the stress level in the aquarium by reducing the number of fish and incorporating places for fish to hide and rest. The hyderabad based center for cellular and micro biology (ccmb) has set up first of its kind zebra fish facility in the country to conduct research on zebra fish and find out curative solutions for human diseases such as cancer, neural conditions and eye diseases according to dr rakesh k mishra. Paleo-diet advocates like cordain say that if we stick to the foods our hunter-gatherer ancestors once ate, we can avoid the diseases of civilization, such as heart disease, high blood pressure. The zebra fish, has a very common genome in relation to humans and serves as a great tool of research for many human diseases 300 million years separate the zebra fish and the humans last known common ancestor.
The spotted gar (lepisosteus oculatus) has emerged as a potential genetic bridge between humans and teleost fish, such as zebrafish, for biomedical research on human diseases. Properties of human and zebrafish motor neurons and implications for their selective vulnerability to neurodegenerative diseases axon degeneration precedes and, sometimes, causes, neuron death in several disorders, including mnds. Heart disease and zebrafish the zebrafish - which can mend its own heart muscle - is providing clues to heart failure, which affects 750,000 people in the uk heart failure results in the heart pumping blood incorrectly and in insufficient amounts throughout the body. The zebrafish is a small tropical fish that has become one of the favoured animal model systems for research in many areas including embryonic development, genetic analyses of disease, neural circuit function and behaviour.
The mckusick-nathans institute of genetic medicine (igm) seeks to further the understanding of human heredity and genetic medicine and use that knowledge to treat and prevent disease the igm is working to consolidate all relevant teaching, patient care and research in human and medical genetics at. We hope that our documentary, zebrafish: practically people, transforming how we study disease, leads the way in educating the biomedical community and public about this small minnow and its big benefits in fighting human diseases. The overall aim of our research is to utilise the power of the zebrafish as a model vertebrate to understand normal development and to find potential cures of human disorders. A wounded zebra fish can regrow almost anything it loses, including skin, bone, joints, nerves, arteries, veins, muscle, eyes, spinal cord, and heart human beings, however, have limited regenerative powers, which is bad news on several fronts.
