Zebrafish model of NF1

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Danio rerio


  1. Resource Description
    After identifying and characterizing the zebrafish orthologues (nf1a and nf1b) of the human neurofibromatosis gene NF1, morpholino antisense oligonucleotides were used to inhibit expression of these orthologues in zebrafish embryos in which endothelial cells were marked by expression of cytoplasmic enhanced green fluorescent protein. Cardiovascular and vascular patterning defects were greater with knockdown of nf1a than nf1b, suggesting that nf1a may play a more prominent role in cardiovascular development.
