  • Kenyon
  • They have been defined anatomically as a discrete neuropil composed of an abundance of parallel fibers originating from densely packed cell bodies, called globuli cells or Kenyon cells ( Schürmann F-W, 1973 ). (elifesciences.org)
  • To facilitate the analysis of the mushroom body we provide a compilation of transgenic fruit flies that express transgenes under direct control of the Kenyon-cell specific promoter, mb247. (frontiersin.org)
  • The transgenes expressed are fluorescence reporters to analyze neuroanatomical aspects of the mushroom body, proteins to restrict ectopic gene expression to mushroom bodies, or fluorescent sensors to monitor physiological parameters of neuronal activity of Kenyon cells. (frontiersin.org)
  • Overall, the collection of transgenic flies expressing sensor and reporter genes in Kenyon cells facilitates combinations with binary transcription systems and might, ultimately, advance the physiological analysis of mushroom body function. (frontiersin.org)
  • behavior
  • No sublethal effect on body mass or developmental time was observed in the surviving insects, but the pesticide treatment negatively affected the development of mushroom bodies in the brain and impaired the walking behavior of newly emerged adult workers. (bijensterfte.nl)
  • Tomé HVV, Martins GF, Lima MAP, Campos LAO, Guedes RNC (2012) Imidacloprid-Induced Impairment of Mushroom Bodies and Behavior of the Native Stingless Bee Melipona quadrifasciata anthidioides. (bijensterfte.nl)
  • midline
  • Here we show that mutation of mushroom body defect ( mud ) dramatically enhances the phenotype of Netrin or frazzled mutants, resulting in many more axons failing to cross the midline, though mutations in mud alone have little effect. (biologists.org)
  • axons
  • Using mosaic analysis with a repressible cell marker (Lee, T. and Luo, L. (1999) Neuron 22, 451-461), we have positively marked the axons and dendrites of multicellular and single-cell mushroom body clones at specific developmental stages. (biologists.org)
  • chemotherapy
  • For patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, they gave their bodies a fresh boost of energy when they consumed Cordyceps in the course of treatment. (wordpress.com)

  • Message Body (Your Name) thought you would like to see this page from the Science web site. (sciencemag.org)
  • The researchers, led by Hao Cheng, PhD , an assistant professor in the Materials Science and Engineering Department of Drexel's College of Engineering, have been studying how to prolong the life of nanoparticles in the body. (innovations-report.com)
  • form
  • and grafting it less densely, in a form where the polymer stands look more like mushrooms, can also prevent protein adsorption. (innovations-report.com)
  • Our hierarchal bi-layer approach is a clever way to combine the advantages of both the brush configuration, as well as low-density PEG layers that form mushrooms. (innovations-report.com)
  • However
  • The information-processing properties of mushroom bodies remain, however, unclear and are the subject of much current research. (frontiersin.org)
  • However, if your dog is diabetic, you may want to alert your vet and monitor his glucose levels when adding medicinal mushrooms to his diet because they may interact with his medications. (dogsnaturallymagazine.com)
  • That awkward situation was however ignored by the Chinese, just as the rest of the world has, when they discovered the medicinal benefits that the Cordycep mushroom boasts. (wordpress.com)
  • research
  • A lot of research is being done on the Caterpillar mushroom and many people agree that the mushroom has great potential in providing new drugs to treat the tough diseases like cancer. (wordpress.com)
  • energy
  • Strikingly, upregulation of mushroom body energy flux is both necessary and sufficient to drive long-term memory formation. (espci.fr)
  • found
  • We found that it takes a mushroom on top of a brush to keep nanoparticles 'invisible' in the bloodstream," said Christopher Li, PhD , a professor in the College of Engineering and co-author of the paper whose work focuses on engineering soft materials, such as polymers. (innovations-report.com)
  • cell
  • 2. Application of acetylcholine ( ACh) or nicotine, but not pilocarpine, promoted a calcium influx into the cell body and neurites. (uni-konstanz.de)
  • Their anti-tumor effects are described as "pro-apoptotic," meaning they promote cell death in cells that are a threat to the body, while leaving healthy cells alone - selectively targeting and killing cancer cells. (dogsnaturallymagazine.com)
