Methods for the Study of the Zebrafish Maxillary Barbel Elizabeth E. LeClair1, Jacek Topczewski2 1Department of Biological Sciences, DePaul University, 2Children’s Memorial Research Center, Department of Pediatrics, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine The zebrafish maxillary barbel is an integumentary sense organ containing ectodermal, mesodermal and neural crest derivatives.

This video introduces maxillary barbel development and demonstrates a surgical protocol to induce regeneration, followed by collection, embedding and downstream imaging of barbel specimens.
