ABSTRACTProper control of cell proliferation is critical for normal development, growth, differentiation, and tissue homeostasis. Dysregulation of cell division and cell death underlies almost all cancers, and contributes to the pathology of birth defects and degenerative diseases. The zebrafish has proved to be an excellent system for elucidating the roles of the cell cycle in normal development, and ways in which dysregulation of cell proliferation contributes to disease. This chapter describes the methods for studying the cell cycle in zebrafish embryos, including protocols to examine cell proliferation, DNA damage, senescence, and cell death.
