A zebrafish model of human melanoma has helped scientists identify new targets for potential therapies.
Zebrafish produce natural chemicals that enhance production of blood-forming stem cells.
Researchers have identified key genetic regulators that boost production of blood-forming stem cells.
HHMI researchers studying zebrafish that die from anemia have discovered a new pathway for the synthesis of heme, the deep red, iron-containing molecule that is a component of hemoglobin and myoglobin.
HHMI researchers have developed powerful new techniques to see in unprecedented detail how blood-forming cells develop in zebrafish.
HHMI researchers have discovered a protein that guides the creation of new blood cells.
HHMI researcher Leonard Zon leads a team that has cloned a zebrafish anemia gene, producing one of the first fish models of a human disease. The achievement opens a new avenue for studying the genetics of human diseases.
