Abstract

The retina is comprised of one glial and six neuronal populations that are generated from a multipotent pool of retinal progenitor cells (RPCs) during development. To give rise to these different cell types, RPCs undergo temporal identity transitions, displaying distinct gene expression...read more

Gastrulation

Gastrulation is a phase early in the embryonic development of most animals, during which the single-layered blastula is reorganized into a multilayered structure known as the gastrula. Before gastrulation, the embryo is a continuous epithelial sheet of cells; by the end of gastrulation, the embryo has begun differentiation to establish distinct cell lineages, set up the basic axes of the body, and internalized one or more cell types including the prospective gut

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.
