Disease Models and Mechanisms Cover Image

Congratulations to Karishma Chhabria whose image was chosen to feature on the front cover of Disease Models and Mechanisms.

Scientific image showing Dorsal view of a 9-day old zebrafish brain

A whole-mount immunostained brain of a 9-day-old zebrafish showing different cellular markers, acquired using a Zeiss Lightsheet fluorescent microscope. Glutamate receptors on neurons and glial cells are in green, phalloidin stain for actin fibers is in red, DAPI stain for nuclear localization is in cyan and the enzyme, glutamine synthetase, is in blue. Expression of these, particularly glutamine synthetase, is reduced under hyperglycemia, a prominent pathology of diabetes.
