CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: Zebrafish help us understand human blood vessel disease in the brain

Cerebral cavernous malformation is a common human disease of the small blood vessels in the brain that often results in stroke, seizure, and brain hemorrhage. It is caused by genetic mutations that result in loss of function of any one of three proteins (CCM1, CCM2, and CCM3). These proteins cooperate during blood vessel development in mice and zebrafish, but the downstream molecules involved in this process have not been determined. A team of researchers, led by Mark Kahn, at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, has now determined that proteins known as STKs act downstream of CCM3 in zebrafish development and a new zebrafish model of cerebral cavernous malformation caused by mutations in CCM3. These data suggest that the functional role of CCM3 in zebrafish parallels its role in humans and that future studies in zebrafish will provide a way to better understand the role of this protein in human cerebral cavernous malformation as well as possible way to test the efficacy of new drugs designed to treat the disease.
