Application Note: A Multi-Omic Approach for the Study of Heart Regeneration Using Zebrafish as a Model Organism
15 February 2018
Previous studies involving the excision of heart tissue from zebrafish have shown tissue to regenerate in only a few days following amputation. Detailed analysis using genomic and proteomic approaches have identified a number of potential candidates that may be implicated in the regeneration process.
This application note uses a multi-omics approach to study zebrafish plasma, rather than the excised tissue, to provide a greater understanding of the mechanisms involved in heart tissue regeneration following the operation. Lipidomic and proteomic data have been collected using a label-free LC-HDMS approach.
