An Adaptive Threshold in Mammalian Neocortical Evolution

bioRxiv

Dec 13, 2013

Eric LewitusWieland B Huttner

Abstract

Expansion of the neocortex is a hallmark of human evolution. However, it remains an open question what adaptive mechanisms facilitated its expansion. Here we show, using gyrencephaly index (GI) and other physiological and life-history data for 102 mammalian species, that gyrencephaly is...read more

lncRNA: Stem Cells & Cancer (Keystone)

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) are a class of RNAs that exceed 200 nucleotides in length and cannot be translated into proteins. LncRNAs have been shown to regulate several cellular processes and signaling pathways. Here is the latest research on their role in stem cells and cancer.

PVN Neurons from iPSCs

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) may be obtained by direct reprogramming of different somatic cells to a pluripotent state by forced expression of a handful of transcription factors. This feed focuses on the generation of neurons of the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus from iPSCs.

Adult Stem Cells

Adult stem cells reside in unique niches that provide vital cues for their survival, self-renewal, and differentiation. They hold great promise for use in tissue repair and regeneration as a novel therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Evolution of Gene Regulation (Keystone)

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on the evolution of gene regulation and gene regulation in Drosophila in this feed.
