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

MicroRNA expression changes during zebrafish development induced by perfluorooctane sulfonate

Studies on the toxic effects of microcystin-LR on the zebrafish (Danio rerio) under different temperatures

A review of studies on androgen and estrogen exposure in fish early life stages: effects on gene and hormonal control of sexual differentiation
