The zebrafish (Danio rerio) model system offers many advantages for studying both developmental biology and human diseases. Because they are transparent for at least seven days post fertilization (dpf), zebrafish embryos allow clear microscopic visualization of developmental or neoplastic processes. This feature has been extended with the generation of a strain yielding transparent adults. In addition, zebrafish have both innate and adaptive immune systems that are similar to those found in mammals, not to mention a fully mapped genome that is homologous to the human genome. Thus, the zebrafish constitutes an inexpensive, physiologically relevant model system that can be easily manipulated to mimic human cancer growth through the induction of tumors by carcinogen treatments, transplantation of mammalian cancer cells, targeted mutagenesis of tumor suppressor genes, or by generation of transgenic zebrafish expressing human oncogenes.
