Resident microbes promote many aspects of host development, al ough e mechanisms by which microbiota influence host tissues remain unclear. We showed previously at e microbiota is required for allocation of appropriate numbers of secretory cells in e zebrafish intestinal epi elium. Because Notch signaling is crucial for secretory fate determination, we conducted epistasis experiments. Bill has been working in e zebrafish industry for over 20 years and his expertise and experience in setting up new zebrafish facilities is invaluable. Bobbi Baur is Aquaneering’s Senior Sales Executive. She has been working wi e zebrafish community for over 14 years and is delighted to be e pri y contact for our international customers. Using in vivo imaging of fluorescent fatty acid (FA) analogs delivered to gnotobiotic zebrafish hosts, we reveal at microbiota stimulate FA uptake and lipid droplet (LD) formation in e intestinal epi elium and liver. Microbiota increase epi elial LD number in a diet-dependent manner. 06, · e zebrafish is an excellent model for studying e establishment of host-bacterial symbioses (Burns and Guillemin, ) because hundreds of zebrafish can be easily derived and maintained in a gnotobiotic state wi defined microbial isolates during larval development (Melancon et al., ). e large population sizes of animals allow for. 18, · Figure.

As e largest professional meeting of for teleost model users, e conference will cover a large range of topics on zebrafish and o er teleost species, from aquaculture to tissue dynamics, from e study of early organogenesis to e application of fish. 01, · Introduction. Humans have vast microbial ecosystem in eir guts at contain countless bacteria. e term ‘gut microbiota’ refers to all e residents of is ecosystem, ranging from its bacterial genes to eir proteins and metabolites [1 •,2].Recent researches indicate e importance of gut microbiota in human heal and its association wi many diseases. Zebrafish are very durable and can wi stand an impressive range of water temperatures and conditions. ey will generally do just fine wi out a water heater as ey are comfortable at temperatures down to e low 60s F. Unlike most fish species, ey are loyal to eir breeding partner and mate for life. zebrafish regenerate organs like fins, heart muscle, retina, and spinal cord. Rawls Lab: We are using gnotobiotic zebrafish models to investigate e molecular foundations of host-microbial interactions in e vertebrate digestive tract. Yoder Lab: e Yoder lab is interested in: 1) developing e zebrafish as a model for innate immunity. Tecniplast S.p.A. actions and guidances – Chairman’s message (April 14) Tecniplast S.p.A. assures full operativity – Managing Director’s message (ch 22nd). Macrophages infiltrate and establish in developing organs from an early stage, often before ese have become vascularized. Similarly, leukocytes, in general, can quickly migrate rough tissues to any site of wounding. is unique capacity is rooted in eir characteristic amoeboid motility, e genetic basis of which is poorly understood.

Animal hosts must co-exist wi beneficial microbes while simultaneously being able to mount rapid, non-specific, innate immune responses to pa ogenic microbes. How is balance is achieved is not fully understood, and disruption of is relationship can lead to disease. Excessive inflammatory responses to resident microbes are characteristic of certain gastrointestinal pa ologies such as. e.gov means it’s official. Federal government websites often end.gov.mil. Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you’re on a federal government site. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) are rapidly gaining popularity in translational neuroscience and behavioral research.Physiological similarity to mammals, ease of genetic manipulations, sensitivity to pharmacological and genetic factors, robust behavior, low cost, and potential for high- roughput screening contribute to e growing utility of zebrafish models in is field. Severe hypoxia elicits aquatic surface respiration (ASR) behaviour in many species of fish, where ventilation of e gills at e air–water interface improves O2 uptake and survival. ASR is an important adaptation at have given rise to air brea ing in vertebrates. e neural substrate of is behaviour, however, is not defined. We characterized ASR in developing and adult zebrafish. Karen Guillemin is e Director of e META Center for Systems Biology and e Leader of Research Area II. She uses gnotobiotic model systems, including e zebrafish, to understand how animals co-exist wi eir microbial residents. During e past 20 years, zebrafish have become models for studying development and disease. As is e case wi humans, zebrafish are vertebrates. Most of e genes required for normal embryonic development in zebrafish are also present in humans. If ey are not properly regulated, e same genes often cause tumor formation and metastatic. [email protected] Research Sum y I am interested in understanding e contribution of host-microbe interactions in development and disease, particularly ose of epi elial origin.
