Species-specific description: Lu et al. (2023) "established a sws2a and sws2b knockout medaka model by CRISPR/Cas9 technology. We discovered that medaka sws2a and sws2b are mainly expressed in the eyes and may be regulated by growth differentiation factor 6a (gdf6a). Compared with the WT, sws2a-/- and sws2b-/- mutant larvae displayed an increase in swimming speed during the changes from light to dark ... . " (GMO)

Seki et al. (2023) "used the CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knock-in approach to establish a transgenic medaka strain expressing the Chloromonas oogama channelrhodopsin (CoChR) in the ISL LIM homeobox 1 (isl1) locus. We demonstrated that light stimuli elicited specific behavioral responses such as bending or turning locomotion in the embryos and pectoral fin movements in the larvae and adults." (GMO)
