In my lab, I found four individuals of Danio rerio with albino
skin-color while their retina are still black. In addition, I found a
chimera of zebrafish, in which a minor part of its body appears without
any pigments in its scale despite its major normal skin.
Would you kindly tell me which gene determinate their skin-color and
retina pattern. Might there be any isozyme or DNA marker pointing these
Also, Would you like to tell me whether a zebrafish variant named
leopard listed in Chapter 7 of "The Zebrafish Book" is the same thing
as the fish named in Latin "Brachydanio rerio" or "Brachydanio frankei"?
I will appreciate any help from you! Thank you very much!
