|Characteristics||Mutations were induced by the CRISPR/Cas9 method on contactin1b (cntn1b) genes. The cntn1b gene has 22-base deletion in exon 6. All the cntn1b mutant juvenile and adult fish show abnormal wobbling and rolling swimming behaviors. They have defective optokinetic response (OKR) adaptation and abnormal rheotaxis (body positioning to water flow). It is difficult to generate a next generation by crossing the homozygous cntn1b mutant pairs.|
