Muscular

From early developmental stage, zebrafish express different proteins included dystrophin expressed in muscle which have been demonstrated to be vital for zebrafish muscle stability.

Zebrafish dystrophin mutants show muscle degeneration from 3 days post-fertilization (dpf) converting the zebrafish great organism for screenings to identify therapies for muscular diseases, validate genetic targets and investigate genes involved in muscular physiology.
