Methodologies for Inducing Cardiac Injury and Assaying Regeneration in Adult Zebrafish. Academic Article uri icon


  • The zebrafish has emerged as an important model organism for understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of tissue regeneration. Adult zebrafish efficiently replace cardiac muscle after partial resection of their ventricle, or after transgenic ablation of cardiomyocytes. Here, we describe methodology for inducing these injuries and assaying indicators of regeneration.
