Animal Models Shared Resource (AMSR) - Zebrafish

Washington, District of Columbia, US

We provide an extensive range of services to enable investigators to utilize this powerful animal model. Zebrafish core personnel offer consultation for experimental design and analysis, as well as training at all levels in the use of zebrafish as a model system. The zebrafish core houses wild-type, mutant and transgenic fish lines, and provides live embryos and larvae for toxicity/small compound screening, behavioral testing, xenografting and teaching purposes. Staged embryos and larvae, fixed for in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical analyses, as well as DNA, RNA or proteins are available. A wide range of specialized services are provided by the (AMSR) including: Morpholino oligonucleotide (MO) injection to knock down specific genes of interest; RNA or cDNA injection to over-express wild-type, mutant and chimeric genes; generation of transgenic zebrafish; generation of mutant fish by targeted CRISPR-Cas9...

Please note: As a not-for-profit institution (Georgetown University) we follow the CRISPR genome editing guidelines as dictated by the Broad Institute, MIT, and Harvard to made CRISPR technology broadly available to the research community. Our zebrafish work requires only a single plasmid containing the Cas9 gene as provided by Addgene, a non-profit plasmid repository that distributes the plasmid through the generosity of the Zhang lab. It is only our intentions to provide CRISPR genome editing services to other academic and not-for-profit institutions.

In vivo Teratogenicity Testing
Price on request

Environmental samples or small molecules are screened using 96-well format for toxicity (by scoring for death) or teratogenicity based on altered morphology. In addition, transgenic reporter lines can be screened for effects on specific molecules or organ systems. Phenotypes are scored and documented by photomicroscopy.
Toxicity: $200 per 96 well plate

Generation of mutant zebrafish lines by targeted gene editing
The CRISPR-Cas9 system is used for generation of targeted genome modification in zebrafish. Single target Cas9 endonuclease or paired target Cas9 nickase strategies are both utilized to generate knockout and transgenic animals. 20-mer targets are designed on-line and confirmed to be unique in the zebrafish genome. Injection ready T7-generated zebrafish codon-optimized cas9 mRNA and guide RNA are produced in vitro and microinjected in single-cell zebrafish embryos. Injected embryos are screened for successful gene targeting and larvae are raised and bred until the confirmation of a successful heritable genome modification. $300/gRNA (injection ready), confirmed mutant generation price upon request.

RNA Injection of Zebrafish Embryos
Starting at $337.50 per unit

Zebrafish eggs are microinjected with RNA in order to over-express wild-type, mutant or chimeric genes. RNA injection is a standard technique for ubiquitously expressing a gene of interest in zebrafish. The level of over-expression (dose) can be controlled by adjusting the amount of injected RNA. Please contact us to discuss experimental details.
