3.0 MATERIALS AND METHODS
3.1 Materials
The main material that used was sodium dodecyl sulphate and Zebrafish embryo. SDS was purchased from Sigma Aldrich with concentration of 99.95%. The embryo of the zebrafish larva was obtained by breeding the adult zebrafish in the laboratory. Furthermore, the other basic materials that was used including aquarium tanks, breeding tanks, water filter, fish food pellet and Instant Ocean Salt. While for the measurement tools that used were pH meter, cylinder, pipette, petri dish, egg water, water bath, microscope and camera. 3.2 Maintenance of water and tanks
The zebrafish was maintained in the carbon filtered water. About 10% from the total volume of water in the tank was changed weekly in order to maintain the water quality. Then, the water was changed immediately if the water already dirty with the food and waste from the zebrafish. This step was prevented the zebrafish from got infected by. The zebrafish was isolated quickly if it showed abnormality or sicked, and treatment was given until it becomes normal again.
3.3 Preparation stock solution

These two pH solutions were used to increase and to decrease the egg water’s pH by ±0.5 concentration. Firstly, the pH of egg water (medium for zebrafish larvae) was recorded by using Hanna pH meter. Then, about 500 ml of egg water was poured into two different beakers in order to prepared two different pH of egg water solution. Next, the pH down solution was dropped slowly by using a pippetor into the 500 ml of egg water in order to decrease pH to -0.5, and then the pH of egg water were recorded. These steps were repeated several times until the desired pH of egg water was obtained. However, in order to increase pH of egg water, the pH up solution were dropped into the egg water and the pH changed was recorded by using pH meter. Then, these steps also were repeated until the desired pH of egg water was

    During the run, note down the goldfish behavioral activity. For the experimental rule, replenish the deoxygenated fish water with caffeine fish water to investigate the influence that caffeine can have on the fish metabolism. Take out around 100 mL of deoxygenated fish water from the chamber. Dissolve 50mg of caffeine tablet within 100 mL of fish water. Make sure that the caffeine tablet is dissolved finely by stirring the solution with a rod.…

    A 12-cell well was filled with 0.5mL of pond water. An egg mass was then placed in one of the cells and given a one minute acclimation period. Then the embryo was placed under a Nikon dissecting microscope connected to a Sony video camera. After that, a three-minute basal video recording was done using the camera. Once the basal recording was completed the treatment solution (either pond water or octopamine) was added using a micropipette for the experimental trial.…

    After the gel has been allowed to run for about an hour, the isoelectric tube will be rinsed with running buffer and set aside. Next, an SDS gel will be prepared in order to separate the proteins based on mass. This will be done by sandwiching two spacers between two glass plates and placing them within a plastic bag. The plate/bag assembly will then be placed into a casting stand and filled with a solution consisting of 12% gel mix, 80 microliters of 100 mg/ml ammonium persulfate, and 15 microliters of TEMED. Next, a comb will be wedged between the two plates and the solution will be allowed to solidify.…

    The same procedures were then performed waiting 5, 10, and 15 minutes before deactivating the amylase. Then again repeating the procedures with 4°C and 95°C water baths. Five test tubes were filled with pH buffers ranging from 2 to 10 in each tube before 2 mL of starch solution was added and the tubes were left to incubate at 37°C for 5 minutes. 500 μL of enzyme was added to each tube, then immediately quenched by adding 2 mL of 1 M hydrochloric acid. Lugol’s iodine was again used to detect the presence of starch.…

    To make the desired buffer, another 100 ml beaker was used to prepare a solution buffer of 50 ml. Following the prelab calculations once again and using the weighting balance, the amount of Tris and SDS needed was weighted. The Tris used were 3.206g and SDS 0.205g. The solids were added to the beaker and to this 50 ml of water. The beaker was stir on the stirring plate until the solution dissolved completely.…

    Next, we will add 2 mL of sodium hydroxide to each test tube. This will raise the pH of the solution to alkaline levels. Next, we will place one of each test tube in the three different temperature water baths for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, we will remove the test tubes from the water baths and add six drops of Biuret reagent to each tube and mix thoroughly. The Biuret reagent will test for the amount of peptide bonds present in the egg whites.…

    Three Artemia tanks will be constructed from 20 L PET plastic carboys. The open top of the tank will be covered with an acrylic plastic sheet to minimize evaporative loss. Tanks will be kept at 4 to 5⁰C in a temperature controlled chamber. Each tank will be filled with 16 L of sterilized seawater and are continuously bubble with Hg free air as described in the Artemia protocol. Before hatching, the Artemia’s cysts will be sterilized by immersing 200 ppm sodium hypochlorite for 20 minutes.…
