It is expressed in the anterior endoderm but can vary dorsally and ventrally between species. For example, in amphibians Cerberus is expressed in the anterior dorsal endoderm and in mice it is expressed in the anterior visceral endoderm. 2 Anterior-Posterior patterning. Anterior-posterior patterning by Cerberus is accomplished by acting as an antagonist to nodal, bmp, and wnt signaling molecules in the anterior region of the vertebrate embryo during gastrulation. Knock down experiments in which Cerberus was partially repressed show a decreased formation of the head structures. In experiments where Cerberus was decreased and wnt, bmp and nodal signals were increased, embryos completely lacked head structures and develop o...

*  E/A ratio
The 'E/A ratio' is a marker of the function of the left ventricle of the heart; it is determined on echocardiography, an ultrasound-based cardiac imaging modality. They transfer blood to the ventricles in 2 steps: in the first step, the weight of the collected blood in each atrium causes it to fall into the ventricles below when the "trap door" valves open; focusing on the left side, the speed at which the blood moves during this initial action is called the early or "E" filling velocity. The speed of the blood filling the ventricle in this step is the "A" for atrial filling velocity. The E/A ratio is the ratio of the early E to late A ventricular filling velocities. The reversal of the E/A ratio 'A' velocity becomes greater than 'E' velocity is often accepted as a clinical marker of diastolic dysfunction, in which the left ventricular wall becomes so stiff as to impair proper filling, which can lead to diastolic heart failure. Diastolic relaxation is divided into four distinct phases during the cardiac cycle...

... thumb|Heart during ventricular diastole. 'Diastole' is the part of the cardiac cycle when the heart refills with blood following systole contraction. Ventricular diastole is the period during which the ventricles are filling and relaxing, while atrial diastole is the period during which the atria are relaxing. Inside the heart Inside the arteries Clinical notation See also References External links. Inside the heart. Image:Wiggers Diagram.svg During ventricular diastole, the pressure in the left and right ventricles drops from the peak that it reaches in systole. When the pressure in the left ventricle drops to below the pressure in the left atrium, the mitral valve opens, causing accumulated blood from the atrium to flow into the ventricle. The 'ventricular filling velocity' or flow into the ventricles have two main components; First an early 'E' diastolic one caused ventricular suction, and second, a late one created by atrial contraction 'A'. 1 Early diastole, i.e., the E-wave in the E/A ratio, is a s...

Failure to properly repair or regenerate damaged cardiac tissues after myocardial infarction is a major cause of heart failure. In contrast to humans and other mammals, zebrafish hearts regenerate after substantial injury or tissue damage. Here, we review recent progress in studying zebrafish heart regeneration, addressing the molecular and cellular responses in the three tissue layers of the heart: myocardium, epicardium, and endocardium. We also compare different injury models utilized to study zebrafish heart regeneration and discuss the differences in responses to injury between mammalian and zebrafish hearts. By learning how zebrafish hearts regenerate naturally, we can better design therapeutic strategies for repairing human hearts after myocardial infarction. 19597525 - Protective effects of betaglucin on myocardial tissue during myocardial infarctio...

Scientists Develop Single-Cell Imaging to Watch the Cell Clock. Scientists Develop Single-Cell Imaging to Watch the Cell Clock 14.11.2012 A new way to visualize single-cell activity in living zebrafish embryos has allowed scientists to clarify how cells line up in the right place at the right time to receive signals about the next phase of their life. Zebrafish embryos are already transparent, but with this closer microscopic look at the earliest stages of life, the researchers have answered two long-standing questions about how cells cooperate to form embryonic segments that later become muscle and vertebrae. more about: » Inner Clock » Notch Signaling » Single-Cell » cell death » cell division » cell type » daughter cells » develop » developmental disorder » fish embryos » infrared-fluorescent proteins » living cell » mental disorder » methanol fuel cells » molecular genetic » signaling pathway » single cell » zebrafish embryo.

*  Transactivation from Gal4-VP16 transgenic insertions for tissue-specific cell labeling and ablation
... in zebrafish. The Tol2-mediated gene/enhancer trapping system together with UAS transgenic lines provide valuable tools for regulated gene expression and for targeted labeling and ablation of specific cell types and tissues during early zebrafish development. As a means to expand available Gal4/UAS capabilities in zebrafish, we have used the Tol2 element to distribute a self-reporting Gal4-VP16;UAS:eGFP gene/enhancer trap construct throughout the zebrafish genome, and conducted a pilot screen for lines displaying Gal4-VP16 dependent activation of the UAS:eGFP reporter. Here, we demonstrate transactivation in UAS:Kaede transgenic fish by photoconversion of Gal4-VP16 expressing cells, a labeling method used to trace migratory cells during development.

ICD10 =, 'Laryngotracheal stenosis' refers to abnormal narrowing of the central air passageways. 1 This can occur at the level of the larynx, trachea, carina or main bronchi. Nomenclature Causes Presentation Treatment See also References. Laryngotracheal stenosis 'Laryngo-': Glottic Stenosis; Subglottic Stenosis; 'Tracheal': narrowings at different levels of the windpipe is a more accurate description for this condition when compared, for example to 'subglottic stenosis' which technically only refers to narrowing just below vocal folds or 'tracheal stenosis'. Subglottic stenosis is often therefore used to describe central airway narrowing in children, and laryngotracheal stenosis is more often used in adults. 3 The main causes of adult laryngotracheal stenosis are:.

(1/126) Facial visceral motor neurons display specific rhombomere origin and axon pathfinding behavior in the chick.

In the chick embryo, facial motor neurons comprise branchiomotor and visceral motor subpopulations, which innervate branchial muscles and parasympathetic ganglia, respectively. Although facial motor neurons are known to develop within hindbrain rhombomere 4 (r4) and r5, the precise origins of branchiomotor and visceral motor neuron subpopulations are unclear. We investigated the organization and axon pathfinding of these motor neurons using axonal tracing and rhombomere transplantation in quail-chick chimeras. Our results show that a large majority of branchiomotor neurons originate in r4 but that a cohort of these neurons undergoes a caudal migration from r4 into r5. By contrast, visceral motor neurons develop exclusively in r5. We found that a striking property of facial visceral motor neurons is the ability of their axons to navigate back to appropriate ganglionic targets in the periphery after heterotopic transplantation. These results complement previous studies in which heterotopic facial branchiomotor neurons sent axons to their correct, branchial arch, target. By contrast, when trigeminal branchiomotor neurons were transplanted heterotopically, we found that they were unable to pathfind correctly, and instead projected to an inappropriate target region. Thus, facial and trigeminal motor neuron populations have different axon pathfinding characteristics.  (+info)

(2/126) Drosophila wing development in the absence of dorsal identity.

The developing wing disc of Drosophila is divided into distinct lineage-restricted compartments along both the anterior/posterior (A/P) and dorsal/ventral (D/V) axes. At compartment boundaries, morphogenic signals pattern the disc epithelium and direct appropriate outgrowth and differentiation of adult wing structures. The mechanisms by which affinity boundaries are established and maintained, however, are not completely understood. Compartment-specific adhesive differences and inter-compartment signaling have both been implicated in this process. The selector gene apterous (ap) is expressed in dorsal cells of the wing disc and is essential for D/V compartmentalization, wing margin formation, wing outgrowth and dorsal-specific wing structures. To better understand the mechanisms of Ap function and compartment formation, we have rescued aspects of the ap mutant phenotype with genes known to be downstream of Ap. We show that Fringe (Fng), a secreted protein involved in modulation of Notch signaling, is sufficient to rescue D/V compartmentalization, margin formation and wing outgrowth when appropriately expressed in an ap mutant background. When Fng and alphaPS1, a dorsally expressed integrin subunit, are co-expressed, a nearly normal-looking wing is generated. However, these wings are entirely of ventral identity. Our results demonstrate that a number of wing development features, including D/V compartmentalization and wing vein formation, can occur independently of dorsal identity and that inter-compartmental signaling, refined by Fng, plays the crucial role in maintaining the D/V affinity boundary. In addition, it is clear that key functions of the ap selector gene are mediated by only a small number of downstream effectors.  (+info)

(3/126) Drosophila Tsc1 functions with Tsc2 to antagonize insulin signaling in regulating cell growth, cell proliferation, and organ size.

Tuberous sclerosis complex is a dominant disorder that leads to the development of benign tumors in multiple organs. We have isolated a mutation in the Drosophila homolog of TSC1 (Tsc1). Cells mutant for Tsc1 are dramatically increased in size yet differentiate normally. Organ size is also increased in tissues that contain a majority of mutant cells. Clones of Tsc1 mutant cells in the imaginal discs undergo additional divisions but retain normal ploidy. We also show that the Tsc1 protein binds to Drosophila Tsc2 in vitro. Overexpression of Tsc1 or Tsc2 alone in the wing and eye has no effect, but co-overexpression leads to a decrease in cell size, cell number, and organ size. Genetic epistasis data are consistent with a model that Tsc1 and Tsc2 function together in the insulin signaling pathway.  (+info)

(4/126) Morphogenesis of prechordal plate and notochord requires intact Eph/ephrin B signaling.

Eph receptors and their ligands, the ephrins, mediate cell-to-cell signals implicated in the regulation of cell migration processes during development. We report the molecular cloning and tissue distribution of zebrafish transmembrane ephrins that represent all known members of the mammalian class B ephrin family. The degree of homology among predicted ephrin B sequences suggests that, similar to their mammalian counterparts, zebrafish B-ephrins can also bind promiscuously to several Eph receptors. The dynamic expression patterns for each zebrafish B-ephrin support the idea that these ligands are confined to interact with their receptors at the borders of their complementary expression domains. Zebrafish B-ephrins are expressed as early as 30% epiboly and during gastrula stages: in the germ ring, shield, prechordal plate, and notochord. Ectopic overexpression of dominant-negative soluble ephrin B constructs yields reproducible defects in the morphology of the notochord and prechordal plate by the end of gastrulation. Notably disruption of Eph/ephrin B signaling does not completely destroy structures examined, suggesting that cell fate specification is not altered. Thus abnormal morphogenesis of the prechordal plate and the notochord is likely a consequence of a cell movement defect. Our observations suggest Eph/ephrin B signaling plays an essential role in regulating cell movements during gastrulation.  (+info)

(5/126) Generation of a novel functional neuronal circuit in Hoxa1 mutant mice.

Early organization of the vertebrate brainstem is characterized by cellular segmentation into compartments, the rhombomeres, which follow a metameric pattern of neuronal development. Expression of the homeobox genes of the Hox family precedes rhombomere formation, and analysis of mouse Hox mutations revealed that they play an important role in the establishment of rhombomere-specific neuronal patterns. However, segmentation is a transient feature, and a dramatic reconfiguration of neurons and synapses takes place during fetal and postnatal stages. Thus, it is not clear whether the early rhombomeric pattern of Hox expression has any influence on the establishment of the neuronal circuitry of the mature brainstem. The Hoxa1 gene is the earliest Hox gene expressed in the developing hindbrain. Moreover, it is rapidly downregulated. Previous analysis of mouse Hoxa1(-/-) mutants has focused on early alterations of hindbrain segmentation and patterning. Here, we show that ectopic neuronal groups in the hindbrain of Hoxa1(-/-) mice establish a supernumerary neuronal circuit that escapes apoptosis and becomes functional postnatally. This system develops from mutant rhombomere 3 (r3)-r4 levels, includes an ectopic group of progenitors with r2 identity, and integrates the rhythm-generating network controlling respiration at birth. This is the first demonstration that changes in Hox expression patterns allow the selection of novel neuronal circuits regulating vital adaptive behaviors. The implications for the evolution of brainstem neural networks are discussed.  (+info)

(6/126) Drosophila neuralized is a ubiquitin ligase that promotes the internalization and degradation of delta.

The Drosophila gene neuralized (neur) has long been recognized to be essential for the proper execution of a wide variety of processes mediated by the Notch (N) pathway, but its role in the pathway has been elusive. In this report, we present genetic and biochemical evidence that Neur is a RING-type, E3 ubiquitin ligase. Next, we show that neur is required for proper internalization of Dl in the developing eye. Finally, we demonstrate that ectopic Neur targets Dl for internalization and degradation in a RING finger-dependent manner, and that the two exist in a physical complex. Collectively, our data indicate that Neur is a ubiquitin ligase that positively regulates the N pathway by promoting the endocytosis and degradation of Dl.  (+info)

(7/126) neuralized Encodes a peripheral membrane protein involved in delta signaling and endocytosis.

Activation of the Notch (N) receptor involves an intracellular proteolytic step triggered by shedding of the extracellular N domain (N-EC) upon ligand interaction. The ligand Dl has been proposed to effect this N-EC shedding by transendocytosing the latter into the signal-emitting cell. We find that Dl endocytosis and N signaling are greatly stimulated by expression of neuralized (neur). neur inactivation suppresses Dl endocytosis, while its overexpression enhances Dl endocytosis and Notch-dependent signaling. We show that neur encodes an intracellular peripheral membrane protein. Its C-terminal RING domain is necessary for Dl accumulation in endosomes, but may be dispensable for Dl signaling. The potent modulatory effect of Neur on Dl activity makes Neur a candidate for establishing signaling asymmetries within cellular equivalence groups.  (+info)

(8/126) Hindbrain patterning: Krox20 couples segmentation and specification of regional identity.

We have previously demonstrated that inactivation of the Krox20 gene led to the disappearance of its segmental expression territories in the hindbrain, the rhombomeres (r) 3 and 5. We now performed a detailed analysis of the fate of prospective r3 and r5 cells in Krox20 mutant embryos. Genetic fate mapping indicates that at least some of these cells persist in the absence of a functional Krox20 protein and uncovers the requirement for autoregulatory mechanisms in the expansion and maintenance of Krox20-expressing territories. Analysis of even-numbered rhombomere molecular markers demonstrates that in Krox20-null embryos, r3 cells acquire r2 or r4 identity, and r5 cells acquire r6 identity. Finally, study of embryonic chimaeras between Krox20 homozygous mutant and wild-type cells shows that the mingling properties of r3/r5 mutant cells are changed towards those of even-numbered rhombomere cells. Together, these data demonstrate that Krox20 is essential to the generation of alternating odd- and even-numbered territories in the hindbrain and that it acts by coupling the processes of segment formation, cell segregation and specification of regional identity.  (+info)


How do embryonic stem cells differ from other stem cells?


What are the advantages of embryonic stem cells over adult stem cells? Is is that embryonic stem cells are still active and able to change into cell tissue? Am I right about that?
----------

Embryonic stem cells (aka pluripotent stem cells) are the most basic kind of cell, and have the potential to become any other type of cell in the body.  Stem cells that are derived from other tissues (most commonly the skin) are not pluripotent, and have a more limited range of what they can become, and therefore less potentially useful.


Are there ways to get embryonic stem cells without abortions or killing the embryo?


Can you get embryonic stem cells from stillborns, miscarriages, etc?

No, there are no cures to date. There is nothing on the brink of success. Adult stem cells, on the other hand, are already producing a lot of benefits.

please help me out and thank you very much!
----------

Currently, there are no real treatments that use embryonic stem cells.  There is research going on in the field, but nothing has gone to the clinical stage.  Some doctors in poorly regulated countries may claim to use embryonic stem cells, but they are charlatans and/or quacks.


what are the pros and cons of embryonic stem cells?


I'm doing a debate on embryonic stem cells and I am FOR them. I need to know both sides of the argument with as much details as possible.
----------

A Debate? Well, so am I!

Here be my notes:
As we all know stem cells have the ability to develop into any type of cell in the body and the potential to be used for almost anything. Embryonic stem cell research involves the nucleus of a cell taken from a patient implanted into a donor egg that is then prompted to grow and divide. After many divisions, a very early-stage embryo develops that will contain stem cells with almost identical DNA to the patient. These cells can be prompted to grow into any kind of tissue – and so can, in theory, combine with small pieces of tissue taken from the patient and encourage growth in that tissue. In this way, entirely new organs can be grown almost from scratch without any need for a scaffold.

The "potential" embryos (not fetuses) are approximately four to five days old and consisting of 50–150 cells when they are harvested. THESE are the most valuable of stem cells because it has the capacity to turn into ANY cell in the human body. 

The reason I said potential embryos is because if the cell mass was placed on a woman's uterus it would not develop into a fetus. When harvested, the potential embryo has no nervous system no brain, so why not gather the cells if it could help save thousands of lives?
I ask you, isn’t a life more valuable than a potential life, if it means ending the suffering of the disabled? That’s what embryonic stem cell research is all about. If an embryo, containing only twenty three chromosomes, is willingly given by a female, then I don’t see what’s wrong with that. A human needs 46 chromosomes to be an individual, so I don’t understand how this cluster of cells can be considered a person, rather than a couple of the female’s genes. 
Research on embryonic cells - particularly when using the cloning technology that produced Dolly the sheep - could revolutionize the treatment of degenerative diseases of the heart, liver, kidneys and neurons, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease. Damaged tissue, due to strokes, burns, cirrhosis, and so on, could also potentially be replaced. Again, doesn’t it seem worth it, to save a person with a disease such as Huntington’s, which has no cure, hope at the expense of no one? It just seems to makes sense all around.
Also, there are several advantages provided by embryonic stem cells, rather than other methods, such as Adult Stem Cells. For example:
1. They are distinctly flexible. They appear to have the potential to make any cell, which only broadens their possibilities.
2. They are, in a way, immortal: one ES cell line can potentially provide an endless supply of cells with 
    defined characteristics.
3. And lastly, they are always available. Embryos can be provided by vitro fertilization clinics and female donors at any time.


Not done yet, but I'm happy to help :)


Parallel sensory structures in the uncircumcised penis and vagina?


Can someone show me a image or description between parallel structures in the uncircumcised penis and vagina?
----------

Kind of like anatomically analogous?

The foreskin is equivalent to the clitoral hood. (Fact: the most common type of female circumcision removes the clitoral hood, hmmmm...)
The glans of the penis equals the clitoris.
The penis equals all genitalia (the above and also the inner and outer labia).
