Name: dorsal longitudinal anastomotic vessel
Synonyms: DLAV
Definition: Paired trunk vessels that run medially along the dorsal-most portion of the trunk and post-vent region. The DLAVs are formed by the longitudinal anastomoses of the intersegmental vessels to form a right and left pair of dorsal longitudinal anastomotic vessels. These paired vessels remodel to form a single plexiform vessel beginning at 3dpf continuing until after 7dpf. The basilar artery connects to the DLAVs at the caudal end of the medulla oblongata. In the early embryo (2.5-3.5 dpf) the primitive hindbrain channels also connect to the DLAV.

Name: cell-cell junction organization
Synonyms: cell-cell junction assembly and maintenance, cell-cell junction biogenesis, cell-cell junction organisation, intercellular junction assembly and maintenance
Definition: A process that is carried out at the cellular level which results in the assembly, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of a cell-cell junction. A cell-cell junction is a specialized region of connection between two cells.
