This nine-day-old zebrafish larva, initially germ-free, has been exposed to Edwardsiella ictaluri by bath three days before being fixed and processed for whole-mount immunohistochemistry. Confocal imaging with bacteria stained in red, nuclei in blue, F-actin in green; ventral view of the head with lateral tilt. Numerous bacterial abscesses can be seen on the jaw and gills (see Rendueles et al., doi:10.1371/journal.ppat.1002815).
