Top articles focused on zebrafish 

The zebrafish is becoming increasingly utilised in toxicological research and screening. Endpoints assessed include gene expression, embryo development, cardiovascular, neurological and endocrine function. The zebrafish model is finding utility as both a toxicological screen and in aspects of mechanism elucidation and the number of published papers using zebrafish has increased.

The Journal of Applied Toxicology has collected together a number of these recent papers to serve as a reference resource for researchers in this area

Ketamine attenuates cytochrome p450 aromatase gene expression and estradiol-17 beta levels in zebrafish early life stages

Verification of responses of Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) to anti-androgens, vinclozolin and flutamide, in short-term assays
