RESEARCH OBJECTIVES Background Vertebrate development has been characterized extensively using the methods of classical embryology, molecular biology and biochemistry. However, mutational analysis in vertebrates, has lagged behind such investigations in invertebrates. As experimentation in Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans has established, mutational studies are a powerful tool to determine the events that result in patterning and morphogenesis of the embryo. When combined with genetic combinatorial analyses, mutational analyses can identify specific genes that act during embryonic development, provide insight into how they function, and clarify the pathways in which they participate. Studies that compare results from these invertebrate systems with those obtained in vertebrates have established that there is remarkable evolutionary conservation in the genetic programs that determine embryo formation, including such early patterning events as formation of the embryonic axes, but also including later events such as development of eye, heart, and other organs. Although invertebrate systems are extremely powerful and numerous aspects of development are conserved, many aspects of patterning and morphogenesis of the vertebrate embryo are distinct and cannot be studied in invertebrates. The vertebrate embryo has many features not present in other models, including the substantially different organization and greater complexity of the nervous system and the fact that some vertebrate organs have no clear cognates in the simpler invertebrates. Thus, understanding human development will require application of experimental approaches to the formation of the vertebrate embryo. Some assessment of mutations that affect development has been possible in the mouse, but the mouse embryo is inaccessible in utero throughout much of its development. Consequently, mutational studies in this species have been limited largely to defects in post- natal maturation. While reverse genetics (e.g., knock-outs) have been useful in the mouse model, the substantial costs of maintaining large mouse colonies has limited the applicability of forward genetic approaches, which will have a profound impact on our understanding of development. As a vertebrate, the zebrafish, Danio rerio, is more closely related to humans than are yeast, worms or flies. It has a number of valuable features as a model organism for study of vertebrate development. Many features of zebrafish development have been characterized, including early embryonic patterning, early development of the nervous system, and aspects of cell fate and lineage determination. The embryos are transparent and accessible throughout development. In live embryos, the same specific cell or even cellular processes can in many cases be identified from individual to individual, affording a high level of precision in characterizing the effect of developmental or genetic perturbation. Techniques for ablation and transplantation of individual cells have been used to explore questions about induction and cell fate, and continue to be refined. There are also a growing number of molecular markers to facilitate developmental studies. Because of their relatively short reproductive cycle, the large number of progeny that can be produced, and the relatively small space needed to maintain large numbers of offspring, the zebrafish is an efficient vertebrate model system for genetic analysis. It is possible to generate haploid progeny, which are viable to the point where many recessive embryonic phenotypes can be identified, and also homozygous diploid progeny that carry only maternal (or paternal) genetic information. A genetic map of approximately 2-3 centimorgan resolution is available, and mutations can be readily placed on the map. Positional cloning of genes identified by mutation has recently been accomplished. Finally, there are several promising methods for transformation and insertional mutagenesis which are now being developed. Two large-scale screens have been performed to date and the transparent embryos screened for defects in overall embryonic pattern, morphogenesis or organ formation. As reported in the December 1996 issue of Development, these screens have identified a substantial number of mutations that affect the formation of organ systems, including defects in the nervous system, skeletal muscle, craniofacial region, kidney and endocrine organs, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, and the sensory cells of lateral line systems which are important to auditory and vestibular function. For most of these mutations, the gene defect has not yet been identified. It is likely that many of these mutations affect genes relevant to human development and disease processes such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. The zebrafish offers the opportunity of using classical genetics to define gene functions. Scope The objective of this PA is to promote the zebrafish as an animal model for the study of development and disease. The goals of this PA are to encourage new and innovative research and approaches using the zebrafish to identify the genes and elucidate the molecular and genetic mechanisms responsible for normal and defective development and disease. Each of the participating Institutes and Centers has interests in using the zebrafish as a model system to better understand particular processes, organs, or diseases. In addition, some may be interested in supporting development of methods, either general techniques or techniques that may particularly apply to their areas of interest. Each Institute with their general statement of interest is listed below in alphabetical order.
