For one family, zebrafish help provide genetic answers
Research in zebrafish has helped identify the cause of an unknown genetic disorder affecting a boy and two of his uncles, scientists report in the journal Genetics. The researchers tracked down a mutation carried only by the affected males and their mothers, within a gene called RPL10. When the equivalent gene was suppressed in zebrafish, the animals developed smaller heads, which is one of the major symptoms of the human disease.
