While working with the other tests, I came across articles, which indicated the application of this model for teratotoxicity as well! We note that the zebra fish organogenesis is perceptible within 3 to 5 days.  The models transparent embryos allow the observation of organ differentiation and development. We used Caffeine, Valproic acid and Retinoic acid... Continue Reading
