Fig. 16. Transgenic zebrafish expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP) under the control of the heat-shock promoter. Heat shock (A) and γ-irradiation (B) induced the expression of the hsp70-GFP transgene in some surface cells in the head and yolk sac in the living transgenic embryos in comparison with no apparent GFP expression in the control embryo (C). Photo shows fluorescent view of the transgenic embryos at 36 hpf. Panel D indicates the gene construct of the GFP gene under the control of the rainbow trout heat shock promoter (Yamashita 1999).
