Zebrafish is a useful tool for analyzing developmental processes and modeling human genetic diseases. Zebrafish possess a closed circulatory system, and the molecular mechanisms underlying its vascular development are highly similar to those of higher vertebrates. Compared with other animal models, zebrafish offers several advantages in studying vascular development. For example, their embryos are transparent during early development and they can survive through the first week with no blood circulation. These features have made zebrafish a powerful animal model in large-scale chemical screening for pro- or anti-angiogenic molecules. In this project, we aimed to investigate the angiogenic effects of novel synthesized chemicals in zebrafish in vivo model.
