Sreelaja Nair, Robin E. Lindeman and Francisco Pelegri In vitro oocyte culture-based manipulation of zebrafish maternal genes Developmental Dynamics 242

Version of Record online: 22 JAN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/dvdy.23930

Key findings:

  • In vitro maturation method coupled to in vitro fertilization for the functional manipulation of maternal genes in zebrafish
  • Injection of wild-type mRNAs into oocytes rescues maternal-effect mutations
  • Functional knock down/reverse genetics can be achieved by expression of dominant-negative products or injection of translation-blocking morpholino oligonucleotides
  • Expression of mRNAs coding for fluorescent fusion products allows visualizing the subcellular localization of maternal factors immediately after fertilization
