Abstract

An extraluminal strain-gauge force transducer has been developed for recording contractile activity of the gastrointestinal smooth muscle. The details of its construction and implantation were described. The transducer unit allows for continuous long-term recordings (more the 5 months) from conscious experimental animals. It could be constructed in any laboratory and easily implanted in animals if it is done in aseptic technique. Since it is sutured onto the outside of the gut, it does not interfere passage of the contents. The only disadvantages are that it only measures muscle contractions and it is hard to determine movements of intraluminal contents especially in the digestive state.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
