Video: Watch Cryptococcus Meningitis Infect Transparent Zebrafish

Photographed and recorded under a microscope, watch Cryptococcus Meningitis fungi (red) infect the transparent body of Zebrafish. Watch the Cryptococcus Meningitis (fungi) red fluorescent tracer as it moves through the larval tissue, blood vessels and then into the brain. Blue macrophages try chasing the red infection to devour it, as it spreads through and around green blood vessels.
Scientists at Duke Medicine are using these real time videos to watch the Cryptococcus move from the lungs into the bloodstream and through the blood-brain barrier of a transparent Zebrafish. The reason Zebrafish are being used is, that they are easier to reproduce and cost less than a mouse or larger mammal. Some of the drawbacks to studying infections in the Zebrafish larvae is their body temperatures are much cooler and they have no lungs, which is where Cryptococcus would enter into human body. Zebrafish are also being used to study other human diseases and bacterias like tuberculosis(TB).
