Glow-in-the-dark zebrafish helping Jefferson scientists uncover cholesterol genes
Biochemists at Jefferson Medical College are using zebrafish that glow to identify potential cholesterol-processing genes.
They already have found a gene they've dubbed "Fat Free" that plays a role in controlling cholesterol metabolism. By identifying such genes, scientists hope to establish the basis for new and improved cholesterol-controlling drugs.
