Rate of movement and redistribution of stainable neurosecretory granules in hypothalamic neurons

Science
A JasinskiT J Hara

Abstract

Electrical stimulation of the olfactory tract of goldfish for one minute can deplete completely the stainable neurosecretory granules from cells of the preoptic nucleus as well as from their axons. Thus, in stimulated neurons secretory granules appear to move toward the neurohemal point of discharge at a rate of about 2 millimeters per minuite. Reaccumutlation of neurosecretory granules in depleted neurons to approximately normal numbers requires about 1 to 1.5 hours. Histological evidence indicates that, during the period of reaccumulation, granules move out of the perikaryon until normal granulation in the axons is achieved; finally, granulation of the perikaryon is restored.

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.
