We identified a mutant line, bone calcification slow (bcs), which showed delayed axial vertebra calcification during development. Traditionally, cartilage is stained by alcian blue using acidic conditions to differentiate tissue staining. e acidic conditions are problematic when one wishes to stain e same specimen for mineralized bone wi alizarin red, because acid demineralizes bone, which negatively affects bone staining. Oil Red, Alcian Blue and Alizarin Red staining. For Oil Red staining, fish were fixed in 4 paraformaldehyde (PFA) in PBS overnight at 4°C, washed once in PBST (PBS containing 0.1 Tween 20) for 5 minutes, stained wi filtered 0.3 Oil Red O (Sigma, O0625) in 60 propan-2-ol for 2 hours, rinsed in PBST and mounted in 75 glycerol. 15, · Common routine stain (not an immunohistochemical stain) to detect mucins (Wikipedia: Alcian Blue Stain [Accessed 8 ust ]) At pH 2.5, detects acidic mucins At pH 1.0, detects highly acidic mucins Stained parts are blue to bluish green Note: all references below are to pH 2.5 unless o erwise indicated. ME ODS: CRISPR/Cas9 rspo3 zebrafish alleles were generated for functional analysis. Palate and cartilage were visualized by Alcian blue staining. e genetic and functional interaction between irf6 and rspo3 was determined via rescue of irf6 mutant rough over-expression of rspo3. Neutral Red and Alcian Blue staining and image quantification. e Neutral Red and Alcian Blue staining protocols were adapted and optimized from Oehlers et al. ().

Alcian blue (/ ˈ æ l ʃ ə n /) is any member of a family of polyvalent basic dyes, of which e Alcian blue 8G (also called Ingrain blue 1, and C.I. 74240, formerly called Alcian blue 8GX from e name of a batch of an ICI product) has been historically e most common and e most reliable member. It is used to stain acidic polysaccharides such as glycosaminoglycans in cartilages and o er. I stain e zebrafish larva in 5 ug/ml.O in E3 media for 20 minutes and wash it in E3 media for 5 minutes. I am going to do alcian blue staining for cartilage and e final step is to use. Neural crest progenitor cells are e main contributors to craniofacial cartilage and connective tissue of e vertebrate head. ese progenitor cells also give rise to e pigment, neuronal and glial cell lineages. To study e molecular basis of neural crest differentiation, we have cloned e gene disrupted in e mont blanc (mobm6 ) mutation, which affects all neural crest derivatives. 31, · e alcian blue stain causes acid mucins and mucosubstances to appear blue, and nuclei to appear reddish pink when counterstain neutral red is used. Alcian blue dyes are water soluble, and appear blue as ey contain copper. ey attach to sulfate and carboxylated acid mucopolysaccharides and glycoproteins, and dye binding is purely electrostatic. e Alcian Blue – H&E – Metanil Yellow (AB-H&E-MY) stain is very effective in distinguishing between Barrett’s and o er gastrointestinal disorders. e stain is simple to perform and e results can easily be duplicated from one staining batch to ano er. e AB H&E - MY stain is a very - comprehensive stain at can be used for e. 19, · Recent works have used ARS vital staining in zebrafish and medaka, yet not based on consistent protocols. ere is a fundamental concern on whe er ARS vital staining, achieved by adding ARS to e water, can affect bone formation in juvenile and adult zebrafish, as ARS has been shown to inhibit skeletal grow and mineralization in mammals. pone-0083155-g001: Skeletal development in zebrafish using alcian blue-Alizarin red double staining.A 9 dpf zebrafish control larvae head skeleton presenting calcified calcified pharyngeal tee (CPT)while o er structures like Meckel's cartilage (MC) and ceratohyal (CH) remain as cartilage).

Embryos at 6-day postfertilization (dpf) were eu anized wi an overdose of MS-222 (1 g/l. Sigma) and en placed into 4 paraformaldehyde overnight at 4°C for fixation. Embryos were en stained wi alcian blue dye (Sigma) as described previously (Hillegass et al., 2008). Briefly, embryos were dehydrated in e anol. Palate phenotype was assessed by Alcian blue staining of zebrafish embryos. RESULTS: Early exposure (0-4hpf) of zebrafish embryos co-injected wi VP16-EL222 mRNA and C120-irf6-ENR plasmid to 465nm light resulted in development of embryos wi a truncated body axis. When embryos were exposed to blue light post epiboly (~ h), zebrafish. Traditionally, cartilage is stained by alcian blue using acidic conditions to differentiate tissue staining. e acidic conditions are problematic when one wishes to stain e same specimen for min. e new staining me od was evaluated by comparing it wi e chamber counting me od using toluidine blue in a triple-blind study in which e results of basophil counting by e alcian blue chamber me od, alcian blue automated instrument me od, and e toluidine blue chamber me od were analyzed for reproducibility and compared wi an.

ABS stands for Alcian Blue Sample and was worked on using Kaede embryos. e preliminary results shows at e Alcian blue staining process doesn’t seem to alter or effect e DNA if at all. It is recommended to use more RFLP product in e gel agarose(it is found at compared to μl, 20 μl is better to see in gels.). Alcian blue staining highlights cartilage in blue. X Masson’s trichrome staining on zebrafish Assessment of e aquatic toxicity by analyzing e morphological changes in zebrafish gills. X. β-Amyloid Immunolabeling on mouse brain To reveal amyloid plaques by anti-β . As e zebrafish craniofacial and axial skeletons are virtually completely ossified once juvenile fish have reached approximately 12–15 mm in leng, wi relatively little cartilage, Alcian blue staining provides little additional information and/or contrast to e Alizarin red‐stained mineralized tissues. Apr 14, · Alcian Blue staining at 5 dpf showed severe jaw defects in grechetto mutants (Figure 2G-J): e posterior ceratohyal and ceratobranchial cartilages failed to properly develop, whereas e more anterior e moidal, Meckel, and palatoquadrate cartilages were normal. Alcian blue staining of GAGs in tissue be modified rough e addition of an electrolyte such as magnesium chloride.
