A *summary * on *Zebrafish model system * discussion during today’s CUBE Chatshaala.
*(268th CUBE Chatshaala!!) *

For the past 260 days of Chatshaala, some of our CUBists were not able to maintain zebrafish at their home lab due to the lockdown and not having much of the facilities to maintain zebrafish.

But cubist from Jorhat - Assam, today, briefly discussed her way of zebrafish maintenance at her home lab. Ishita’s objective is to redesign an easy and cheap method to maintain and culture zebrafish in home labs.

All that we need for maintaining zebrafish in home lab is a container big enough for the fish to swim around, dechlorinated water (as chlorine water is harmful for the fish), food which is micro pellet and some zebra fishes that we can get from a nearby water body or an aquarium. Ishita is feeding the fishes daily with 3 micro pellets and also changing the water every 2 days.
" _It’s not difficult to maintain zebra fish at home lab _" said by Ishita based on her experience!

We had cubist from TIFR Mumbai, joining us today, who helped Ishita in further part of culturing zebra fishes. Ishita will be soon giving us updates on this. Currently she is maintaining 4 zebra fishes, in which 2 of them are males and the other 2, females.

Great work ! We are looking forward to your updates on how happy your fish is at your home lab.



How excellent the Cardamine model system is… Cardamine is also giving context to understand the basic biology…

Kanamycin resistance gene has been used to transform Cardamine plants…

As a preliminary understanding we need to know that does Kanamycin antibiotic actually affects the Cardamine plant or any plant as Kanamycin is an antibiotic mostly used against bacteria…

From Nazish excellent work of effect of kanamycin antibiotic on untransformed Cardamine seeds we could propose that Kanamycin actually Acting on Chloroplast and mitochondria specifically acts on 30S ribosomes of Chloroplast and mitochondria…

What are the different type of ribosomes does a plant cell Carries?.. why plant cell has prokaryotic and eukaryotic ribosome?.. what’s the role of 70s ribosomes in chloroplast and mitochondria?..

All such basic yet thinkable questions were asked so let’s discuss thisi in detail and also find relavent reference related to this…
