Abstract

Summary of Proposed WorkThis study aims to adapt and develop an experimental protocol for studying the acute inflammatory reaction in Danio rerio ( " zebrafish " ) , induced by inoculation of Aeromonas hydrophila aerocistite . 60 zebrafish ( Danio rerio ) , from the same spawning , which will be packaged in 6 aquaria ( n = 10 ) , with a capacity of 100L of water each , supplied with running water devoid of chlorine will be used . After acclimatization period of 15 days, the fish will be anesthetized in aqueous solution of benzocaine ( 1:10,000 ) for delivery of 10¼L of inoculum of A. hydrophila living in the swim bladder in concentration 3 x 109 CFU . Six , 12 , 18 , 24 , 36 and 48 hours after inoculation , euthanasia ten fish per period is accomplished by deep anesthesia in aqueous solution of benzocaine ( 1:500 ) . The swim bladder is washed thoroughly with PBS containing 0.09% EDTA for collection of exudate and an aliquot of this volume will be transferred to a Neubauer chamber to count the total inflammatory cells by light microscopy. For differential counting of thrombocytes , lymphocytes , macrophages, and granulocytes is placed a small aliquot of the exudate for histological slide over an extended embodiment , subsequent to dye fixation with May - Grunwald -Giemsa - Wright . Although our laboratory have experience in the art as with other teleost pacu ( Piaractus mesopotamicus ) and tilapia ( Oreochromis niloticus ), the administration of micro - inoculum in the swim bladder to the small size of the zebrafish , the standardization of the anesthesia and the determination of kinetic cell response in the inflamed focus on the six proposed periods represent the challenge of this job step . For among the species of teleost above , a difference was observed in the evolution of the inflammatory response . However , the domain of this technique in the future Denio rerio represent an important tool in the study of mediators and modulators , as well as in understanding and elucidating the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the acute inflammatory reaction.
