Abstract

The bursa of Fabricius is critical for the normal development of B lymphocytes in birds. It is productively colonized during embryonic life by a limited number of B cell precursors that have undergone the immunoglobulin gene rearrangements required for expression of cell surface immunog...read more

Embryonic Development: Enhancer/Promoter(Keystone)

During development and differentiation of an organism, accurate gene regulation is central for cells to maintain and balance their differentiation processes. Transcriptional interactions between cis-acting DNA elements such as promoters and enhancers are the basis for precise and balanced transcriptional regulation.This feed follows research on enhancer promoter communication in embryonic development.

V(D)J Recombination

V(D)J recombination is the specialized DNA rearrangement used by cells of the immune system to assemble immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor genes from the preexisting gene segments. Here is the latest research.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.

Barrel cortex

Here is the latest research on barrel cortex, a region of somatosensory and motor corticies in the brain, which are used by animals that rely on whiskers for world exploration.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Immunoglobulin Class Switching

Immunoglobulin class switching from igm to igg and iga is central to immunity against viruses and requires the activation of b cells by t cells via cd154 and cytokines. Discover the latest research on immunoglobulin class switching here.

Deep Homology

Deep homology investigates the genetic mechanisms that are homologous and deeply conserved across a wide range of species in evolutionary developmental biology. Discover the latest research on deep homology here.

Basement Membranes

Basement membranes are thin, specialized extracellular matrices surrounding most tissues in all metazoans. Here is the latest research on basement membranes.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Lymphoid Organ Development

The precise localization and structure of lymphoid organ development allows for an orchestrated immune response to an array of potential pathogens. Discover the latest research on Lymphoid Organ Development here.

Antibody Repertoire Diversity

Antibody repertoire diversity and its role during natural infection is a prerequisite for molecular and structural elucidation of functionally protective immunity. Discover the latest insights into antibody diversity here.
