Abstract

The highly ordered vertebrate retina is composed of seven cell types derived from a common pool of retinal progenitor cells (RPCs), and is a good model for the studies of cell differentiation and interaction during neural development. Notch signaling plays a pivotal role in retinogenesi...read more

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.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function. Discover the latest research on adhesion molecule and their role in health and disease here.

Senescence in Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes has been found to induce premature senescence of endothelial retinal cells. An increase in senescence-associated cytokines has been found in patients with diabetic retinopathy. Understanding the mechanism and preventing this from occurring is of great importance. Here is the latest research on senescence and diabetic retinopathy.

Adherens Junctions

An adherens junction is defined as a cell junction whose cytoplasmic face is linked to the actin cytoskeleton. They can appear as bands encircling the cell (zonula adherens) or as spots of attachment to the extracellular matrix (adhesion plaques). Adherens junctions uniquely disassemble in uterine epithelial cells to allow the blastocyst to penetrate between epithelial cells. Discover the latest research on adherens junctions here.

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

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

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.

PAX Transcription Factors

Paired Box (PAX) family of transcription factors play various roles in mammalian development. Discover the latest research on the PAX Transcription Factors here.

Neuronal Guidance: Evolution

Embryonic Neural Stem Cells

Embryonic neural stem cells can be used to investigate the effect of different toxins and molecules on the proliferation and differentiation of these cells. Discover the latest research of embryonic neural stem cells here.

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

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Retinal Development: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging.

Single Cell Atlas of the Neural Retina

Examining the spatial arrangement of cell types in the retina and performing single cell analyses on these cell types will integrate information on the biology of these cells and development of disease. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Neural Retina here.

Interneurons & Stem Cells

Interneurons are found throughout central nervous system and create important networks of connections between other sensory and motor neurons. The use of stem cells to artificially create interneurons enables the study and understanding of the role of the interneurons throughout the CNS. Here is the latest research on interneurons and stem cells.

Vertebrate Retinal Development

Retinal development in vertebrae is a complex molecular process that is regulated by several signal transduction pathways, including the Sonic hedgehog signaling pathway. Here is the latest research.

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.

Wnt Signaling

Wnt signal transduction pathway is regulated by several molecules and is critical for embryonic development, cell proliferation, differentiation, and tissue patterning. Here is the latest research on Wnt signaling.
