Immunohistochemistry for Myosin in Zebrafish Embryos
MetadataShow full item record
Myosin is an important component to muscle contractility. Since the heart requires the ability to contract to pump blood, myosin will also be located in the heart. The goal of this research project was to utilize immunohistochemistry and hematoxylin/eosin staining on zebrafish embryos at different stages of development, from unfertilized to moments before hatching, in order to find the when zebrafish hearts are developed far enough to produce myosin.
