New study in Development journal demonstrates applications of LITE Switch System in the zebrafish Dallas, TX, January 2, 2017 – In 2014 Motta-Mena et al. described the first LITE Switch System based on the photosensor EL222. In this latest 2016 study a new LITE Switch System that is optimized for use in the zebrafish is reported. The zebrafish is a widely used model organism in vertebrate development and biomedical research. As such, this article shows how TAEL, the new zebrafish LITE Switch System, can be used in a variety of applications to probe and manipulate cellular signaling pathways and be integrated with the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology.
