    Long-distance communication by specialized cellular projections during pigment pattern development and evolution

    Dae Seok Eom et al.
    Cells of the xanthophore lineage form projections that allow them to communicate with other pigment cells during adult pigment pattern formation in zebrafish, but not in the closely-related pearl danio.

    Thyroid hormone regulates distinct paths to maturation in pigment cell lineages

    Lauren M Saunders et al.
    Single-cell transcriptomics combined with genetic analyses identify post-embryonic neural crest subpopulations and thyroid hormone dependencies in zebrafish adult pigment pattern development.

    Gap junctions composed of connexins 41.8 and 39.4 are essential for colour pattern formation in zebrafish

    Uwe Irion et al.
    Melanophores and xanthophores interact via heteromeric gap junctions composed of Connexin 41.8 and Connexin 39.4 to establish the adult pigment pattern in zebrafish.

    Single-cell RNA analysis identifies pre-migratory neural crest cells expressing markers of differentiated derivatives

    Ezra Lencer et al.
    Pre-migratory and early migratory neural crest cells in zebrafish are transcriptionally diverse, with some cells expressing genes associated with differentiated derivatives while still in the neural tube.

    Development and genetics of red coloration in the zebrafish relative Danio albolineatus

    Delai Huang et al.
    In the zebrafish relative Danio albolineatus, red erythrophores share a common progenitor with yellow xanthophores and require Cyp2ae2 and Bdh1a for accumulation of red ketocarotenoid pigment.

    A quantitative modelling approach to zebrafish pigment pattern formation

    Jennifer P Owen et al.
    A mathematical modelling approach to understanding zebrafish stripe pattern formation exemplifies a biological rule-set sufficient to generate wild-type and a diverse range of mutant patterns.

    Lipid droplet biology and evolution illuminated by the characterization of a novel perilipin in teleost fish

    James G Granneman et al.
    Phylogenetic, biochemical, and genetic techniques reveal a novel and ancient member of the Perilipin family, termed Plin6, that functions to concentrate and traffic lipophilic skin pigment in teleost fish.

    A chemical screen in zebrafish embryonic cells establishes that Akt activation is required for neural crest development

    Christie Ciarlo et al.
    Akt activation is required for neural crest differentiation through regulation of Sox10 activity.

    Tight Junction Protein 1a regulates pigment cell organisation during zebrafish colour patterning

    Andrey Fadeev et al.
    The changes in shape of iridophores that underlie adult colour pattern formation in zebrafish depend on the levels of Tight Junction Protein 1a in these cells.
