Differences in benzo(a)pyrene metabolism between rodent liver microsomes and embryonic cells. (1/12641)

Differences in benzo(a)pyrene metabolite pattern have been shown by rodent liver microsomes (Sprague-Dawley) and rodent embryo cells from Syrian hamsters and NIH Swiss mice. Rodent liver induced by methylcholanthrene shows marked quantitative variation between species. Additional pattern changes were found in mouse and hamster embryo secondary cultures with a reduction of the K-region metabolites and a marked increase in 9-hydroxybenzo(a)-pyrene. These results are indicative of a region-specific attack on the carcinogen by the cell monooxygenases which is distinct from the liver attack of microsomal enzymes on benzo(a)pyrene. These results suggest that activation and detoxification of benzo(a)pyrene may be species and tissue variable, and susceptibility and resistence to malignant transformation may be predicted on induction of a fortuitous combination of intermediate metabolic steps.  (+info)

A molecular pathway revealing a genetic basis for human cardiac and craniofacial defects. (2/12641)

Microdeletions of chromosome 22q11 are the most common genetic defects associated with cardiac and craniofacial anomalies in humans. A screen for mouse genes dependent on dHAND, a transcription factor implicated in neural crest development, identified Ufd1, which maps to human 22q11 and encodes a protein involved in degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. Mouse Ufd1 was specifically expressed in most tissues affected in patients with 22q11 deletion syndrome. The human UFD1L gene was deleted in all 182 patients studied with 22q11 deletion, and a smaller deletion of approximately 20 kilobases that removed exons 1 to 3 of UFD1L was found in one individual with features typical of 22q11 deletion syndrome. These data suggest that UFD1L haploinsufficiency contributes to the congenital heart and craniofacial defects seen in 22q11 deletion.  (+info)

Regulation of neurotrophin-3 expression by epithelial-mesenchymal interactions: the role of Wnt factors. (3/12641)

Neurotrophins regulate survival, axonal growth, and target innervation of sensory and other neurons. Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) is expressed specifically in cells adjacent to extending axons of dorsal root ganglia neurons, and its absence results in loss of most of these neurons before their axons reach their targets. However, axons are not required for NT-3 expression in limbs; instead, local signals from ectoderm induce NT-3 expression in adjacent mesenchyme. Wnt factors expressed in limb ectoderm induce NT-3 in the underlying mesenchyme. Thus, epithelial-mesenchymal interactions mediated by Wnt factors control NT-3 expression and may regulate axonal growth and guidance.  (+info)

Low resting potential and postnatal upregulation of NMDA receptors may cause Cajal-Retzius cell death. (4/12641)

Using in situ patch-clamp techniques in rat telencephalic slices, we have followed resting potential (RP) properties and the functional expression of NMDA receptors in neocortical Cajal-Retzius (CR) cells from embryonic day 18 to postnatal day 13, the time around which these cells normally disappear. We find that throughout their lives CR cells have a relatively depolarized RP (approximately -50 mV), which can be made more hyperpolarized (approximately -70 mV) by stimulation of the Na/K pump with intracellular ATP. The NMDA receptors of CR cells are subjected to intense postnatal upregulation, but their similar properties (EC50, Hill number, sensitivity to antagonists, conductance, and kinetics) throughout development suggest that their subunit composition remains relatively homogeneous. The low RP of CR cells is within a range that allows for the relief of NMDA channels from Mg2+ blockade. Our findings are consistent with the hypothesis that CR cells may degenerate and die subsequent to uncontrolled overload of intracellular Ca2+ via NMDA receptor activation by ambient glutamate. In support of this hypothesis we have obtained evidence showing the protection of CR cells via in vivo blockade of NMDA receptors with dizocilpine.  (+info)

The amyloid precursor protein interacts with Go heterotrimeric protein within a cell compartment specialized in signal transduction. (5/12641)

The function of the beta-amyloid protein precursor (betaAPP), a transmembrane molecule involved in Alzheimer pathologies, is poorly understood. We recently reported the presence of a fraction of betaAPP in cholesterol and sphingoglycolipid-enriched microdomains (CSEM), a caveolae-like compartment specialized in signal transduction. To investigate whether betaAPP actually interferes with cell signaling, we reexamined the interaction between betaAPP and Go GTPase. In strong contrast with results obtained with reconstituted phospholipid vesicles (Okamoto et al., 1995), we find that incubating total neuronal membranes with 22C11, an antibody that recognizes an N-terminal betaAPP epitope, reduces high-affinity Go GTPase activity. This inhibition is specific of Galphao and is reproduced, in the absence of 22C11, by the addition of the betaAPP C-terminal domain but not by two distinct mutated betaAPP C-terminal domains that do not bind Galphao. This inhibition of Galphao GTPase activity by either 22C11 or wild-type betaAPP cytoplasmic domain suggests that intracellular interactions between betaAPP and Galphao could be regulated by extracellular signals. To verify whether this interaction is preserved in CSEM, we first used biochemical, immunocytochemical, and ultrastructural techniques to unambiguously confirm the colocalization of Galphao and betaAPP in CSEM. We show that inhibition of basal Galphao GTPase activity also occurs within CSEM and correlates with the coimmunoprecipitation of Galphao and betaAPP. The regulation of Galphao GTPase activity by betaAPP in a compartment specialized in signaling may have important consequences for our understanding of the physiopathological functions of betaAPP.  (+info)

Identification of the Kv2.1 K+ channel as a major component of the delayed rectifier K+ current in rat hippocampal neurons. (6/12641)

Molecular cloning studies have revealed the existence of a large family of voltage-gated K+ channel genes expressed in mammalian brain. This molecular diversity underlies the vast repertoire of neuronal K+ channels that regulate action potential conduction and neurotransmitter release and that are essential to the control of neuronal excitability. However, the specific contribution of individual K+ channel gene products to these neuronal K+ currents is poorly understood. We have shown previously, using an antibody, "KC, " specific for the Kv2.1 K+ channel alpha-subunit, the high-level expression of Kv2.1 protein in hippocampal neurons in situ and in culture. Here we show that KC is a potent blocker of K+ currents expressed in cells transfected with the Kv2.1 cDNA, but not of currents expressed in cells transfected with other highly related K+ channel alpha-subunit cDNAs. KC also blocks the majority of the slowly inactivating outward current in cultured hippocampal neurons, although antibodies to two other K+ channel alpha-subunits known to be expressed in these cells did not exhibit blocking effects. In all cases the blocking effects of KC were eliminated by previous incubation with a recombinant fusion protein containing the KC antigenic sequence. Together these studies show that Kv2.1, which is expressed at high levels in most mammalian central neurons, is a major contributor to the delayed rectifier K+ current in hippocampal neurons and that the KC antibody is a powerful tool for the elucidation of the role of the Kv2.1 K+ channel in regulating neuronal excitability.  (+info)

Differential regulation of the human nidogen gene promoter region by a novel cell-type-specific silencer element. (7/12641)

Transfection analyses of the human nidogen promoter region in nidogen-producing fibroblasts from adult skin revealed multiple positive and negative cis-acting elements controlling nidogen gene expression. Characterization of the positive regulatory domains by gel mobility-shift assays and co-transfection studies in Drosophila SL2 cells unequivocally demonstrated that Sp1-like transcription factors are essential for a high expression of the human nidogen gene. Analysis of the negative regulatory domains identified a novel silencer element between nt -1333 and -1322, which is bound by a distinct nuclear factor, by using extracts from adult but not from embryonal fibroblasts. In embryonal fibroblasts, which express significantly higher amounts of nidogen mRNA as compared with adult fibroblasts, this inhibitory nidogen promoter region did not affect nidogen and SV40 promoter activities. The silencer element seems to be active only in nidogen-producing cells. Therefore this regulatory element might function in vivo to limit nidogen gene expression in response to external stimuli. However, none of the identified regulatory elements, including the silencer, contribute significantly to cell-specific expression of the human nidogen gene. Instead we provide evidence that gene expression in epidermal keratinocytes that are not producing nidogen is repressed by methylation-specific and chromatin-dependent mechanisms.  (+info)

Onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of fibrillarin in macaque embryos developing in vitro. (8/12641)

Specific aims were to characterize the onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of the nucleolar protein fibrillarin during preimplantation development in vitro in macaque embryos using autoradiographic and immunocytochemical techniques. Autoradiography was performed on whole embryos cultured with [3H]uridine for assessment of nucleolar (rRNA) and extranucleolar (mRNA) transcription. Expression of fibrillarin was immunocytochemically assessed in whole embryos using a primary antibody against fibrillarin and a fluorescein isothiocyanate-conjugated secondary antibody. Extranucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was first detected in 2-cell embryos cultured 6-10 h with [3H]uridine. Culture with alpha-amanitin prevented incorporation of label in 2-cell embryos, and treatment with ribonuclease reduced the signal to background levels, indicating that [3H]uridine was incorporated into mRNA and not rRNA or DNA. Nucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was not evident in pronucleate-stage or 2- to 5-cell embryos, but it was detected in one 6-cell embryo and in all 8-cell to blastocyst-stage embryos. Fibrillarin was first expressed in some 6- to 7-cell embryos, but it was consistently expressed in all 8-cell embryos. Fibrillarin was localized to the perimeter of the nucleolar precursor bodies, forming a ring that completely encapsulated these structures. Fibrillarin was not expressed in 8- to 16-cell embryos cultured with alpha-amanitin, indicating that it is transcribed, rather than recruited, at the 8-cell stage. In conclusion, in in vitro-fertilized macaque embryos developing in vitro, extranucleolar synthesis of mRNA is initiated at the 2-cell stage while the onset of nucleolar transcription occurs at the 6- to 8-cell stage, coincident with expression of fibrillarin.  (+info)

Embryonic stem cells (ES) cells were injected into host blastocysts either in groups of 10-15 cells or as single cells in order to test their developmental potential in the developing embryo. The analysis of midgestation chimaeras, by electrophoretic separation of glucose phosphate isomerase (GPI) isozymes, showed that ES cells were capable of colonizing trophectoderm and primitive endoderm derivatives at a low frequency, as well as producing a high rate of chimaerism in tissues of the fetus and extraembryonic mesoderm.. ...

N2 - The early blood vessels of the embryo and yolk sac in mammals develop by aggregation of de novo - forming angioblasts into a primitive vascular plexus, which then undergoes a complex remodeling process. Angiogenesis is also important for disease progression in the adult. However, the precise molecular mechanism of vascular development remains unclear. It is therefore of great interest to determine which genes are specifically expressed in developing endothelial cells (ECs). Here, we used Flk1-deficient mouse embryos, which lack ECs, to perform a genome-wide survey for genes related ...
Artificial Womb Unlocks Secrets of Early Embryo. Pioneering work by a leading University of Nottingham scientist has helped reveal for the first time a vital process in the development of the early mammalian embryo.. A team led by Professor of Tissue Engineering, Kevin Shakesheff, has created a new device in the form of a soft polymer bowl which mimics the soft tissue of the mammalian uterus in which the embryo implants. The research has been published in the journal Nature Communications.. This new laboratory culture method has allowed scientists to see critical aspects of embryonic development that have never been seen in this way before. For the first time it has been possible to grow embryos outside the body of the mother, using a mouse model, for just long enough to observe in real time processes of growth during a crucial stage between the fourth and eighth days of development.. Professor Shakesheff said: Using our unique materials and techniques we have been able to give our research ...
The roles of BMP and Pax in the embryonic development have been extensively studied in recent years and the formation of the neural tube is usually described as a self-evident process, but formation of nervous system in human embryos has actually not been examined in detail. In the present study 40 human embryos at Carnegie stages (CS) 10-20 were obtained, and the expression of BMP-2, BMP-4, Pax2, Pax6 and Pax7 proteins were examined in the developing brain. 22 rat embryos of CS 14, 18 and 20 were employed to compare the BMP-2, BMP-4 and Pax2 expression in the developing spinal cord of human and rat embryos throughout early stages of the nervous system development. To detect expression of proteins the method of immunohistochemistry was used. BMP-2 and BMP-4 are essential signalling molecules for the formation of the neural tube in human embryos as their expression was seen throughout all studied developmental stages 10-20. The expression of both proteins, BMP-2 and BMP-4, had a tendency to ...

Rapid and precise phenotyping analysis of large numbers of wild-type and mutant mouse embryos is essential for characterizing the genetic and epigenetic factors regulating embryogenesis. We present a novel methodology that permits precise high-throughput screening of the phenotype of embryos with both targeted and randomly generated mutations. To demonstrate the potential of this methodology we show embryo phenotyping results produced in a large-scale ENU-mutagenesis study. In essence this represents an analysis pipeline, which starts with simultaneous micro-magentic resonance imaging (microMRI) screening (voxel size: 25.4 x 25.4 x 24.4 microm) of 32 embryos in one run. Embryos with an indistinct phenotype are then cut into parts and suspect organs and structures are analysed with HREM (high-resolution episcopic microscopy). HREM is an imaging technique that employs positive eosin staining and episcopic imaging for generating three-dimensional (3D) high-resolution (voxel size: 1.07 x 1.07 x 2 microm)
Vistahermosa Reproduction Unit.. Several aspects have to be evaluated so that the strategy to be followed is successful: number of embryos obtained, embryo quality grade, age of the patient, associated pathologies, complementary techniques and if it is an IVF or ovodonation cycle.. But why on day 3 or day 5? Dr. Avilés explains that these are the days in which the quality of the embryos can be more easily analyzed according to morphological parameters: shape, size, number of cells, fragments or vacuoles of the cells; and kinetic parameters: times of cell division. Also, depending on the implantation potential, the selection of the embryos includes 4 grades, from A to D, with A being very high and D being the lowest.. Transferring on day 3 or on day 5 will depend fundamentally on the number of embryos we have, especially because the fact that an embryo does not reach day 5 in the laboratory does not mean that it does not evolve in the uterus, which is its natural environment, says ...
Dejelling embryos: Wait at least one hour after fertilisation, any time after this embryos may be dejellied. Decant the MBS off the embryos, leaving them semi-dry and stuck to the bottom of the dish. Cover the embryos in the 2% cysteine solution, which will dissolve the jelly coats surrounding the eggs. With occasional, mild agitation, the embryos will be liberated in 5-7 minutes. It is important not to swirl eggs too vigorously when dejellying as this can cause axis duplications in some cases. Once the jelly coat is dissolved, the cysteine solution must be removed immediately (it can be reused). The embryos are then washed 3-4 times in a large volume of 0.1xMBS to remove residual cysteine. If left in the cysteine solution too long, or not washed enough, the plasma membrane will be damaged and the embryos will die! ...

The embryo Hugo (STIEVE, 1926) (635 (1. in length according to our measurements, which are based on a new reconstruction, text-fig. 11) certainly possesses a head-process. It is shown in our reconstruction and in section in the figures of STIEVE as a broad compact plate of cells extending forwards in front of HENsENs knot and apparently intercalated throughout its extent in the endoderm, i.e., no endodermal layer is distinguishable below it. This plate undoubtedly comprises in its median part the head-process, but whether and to what extent its lateral portions are formed by forward extensions of the primitive streak mesoderm cannot be determined from the examination of the sections figured. The head~process forms a comparatively compact mass caudally to section 28 (fig. 15 in SrIE.VEs paper). Already in this section its apparent right half is composed of loosened mesoderm-like cells. This character is still more distinct in section 26 (fig. 14 in STIEvEs paper). The endoderm is ...

There are a couple ways to do this. What I would do is use the center coordinates in one of the display_square or display_point modules to draw a different symbol for each result. This requires a bit more work to create an array for each type (assuming more than one embryo is visible at a time) and feed those arrays into the respective display modules. If only one embryo is visible at a time then just create two variables alive_x, alive_y and dead_x, dead_y which are then used in two display modules. When one is active, set the other set to -1000 so that nothing is displayed. (i.e. if you dont clear dead_x and just set alive_x then the display module will still show the previous result). Hope this makes sense ...

Those Swedish scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm have become the first to successfully edit genetic material in healthy human embryos. The scientists, led by biologist Fredrik Lanner, injected a gene-editing tool into human embryos that was intended to make extremely specific changes to that embryos genetic material. The human embryo injection is done at an extremely early stage, less than 48 hours after fertilization. So what are they changing in the human embryos DNA? That is not entirely clear. For now, the researchers say that they are hoping that the experiments theyre conducting will help them develop new methods for preventing miscarriages and for treating infertility, as well as to better understand human embryo development.. The human embryos used in the Swedish experiments could lead to pregnancy, but for the moment, they will not. The human embryos used were donated by couples that had undergone an in vitro fertilization process. The human embryos all contained an ...
Nodal signals in the early post-implantation stage embryo are essential to establish initial proximal-distal (P-D) polarity and generate the final anterior-posterior (A-P) body axis. Nodal signaling in the epiblast results in the phosphorylation of Smad2 in the overlying visceral endoderm necessary to induce the AVE, in part via Smad2-dependent activation of the T-box gene Eomesodermin. Slightly later following mesoderm induction a continuum of dose-dependent Nodal signaling during the process of gastrulation underlies specification of mesodermal and definitive endoderm progenitors. Dynamic Nodal expression during the critical 72 h time window immediately following implantation, accomplished by a series of feed-back and feed-forward mechanisms serves to provide key positional cues required for establishment of the body plan and controls cell fate decisions in the early mammalian embryo.

As embryologists, one of the most common questions that we get from patients is What do the grades of my embryos tell us about my chances of becoming pregnant? The answer to this question is not a simple one. The objective of this article is to explain how we grade embryos and what those grades mean as far as an embryos potential for development.. All embryo grading systems are subjective. While we can make educated guesses about an embryos potential based on the experience of many embryologists grading millions of embryos, there are many cases of embryos with poor grades that make pregnancies and perfect embryos that do not. Also, no matter the grading system, the embryo grades do not tell us what is going on inside the embryo genetically.. We use grading systems to help us determine which embryos to transfer and/or freeze. At the Texas Fertility Center, embryo transfers occur either 3 days or 5 days after a retrieval. Because embryos are developmentally different on these days, we have ...
This book pulls together the full range of cell culture, biochemical, microscopic, and genetic techniques to study the early mammalian embryo.

The monkey embryos were injected with human stem cells 6 days after they were created, which can yield multiple different types of tissue, both embryonic and non- or extra-embryonic tissues, the report notes.. The human cells were still found in 132 chimera embryos 24 hours after implantation. 109 embryos continued to develop after 9 days. After day 19, only 3 embryos remained. After 20 days, all of the embryos had been destroyed.. Researchers were able to examine the resultant embryos to determine which communication pathways between the monkey and human cells were viable in the generation of future chimeras and which were not.. The team said it gave the utmost attention to ethical considerations… by coordinating closely with regulatory agencies during their research.. Technology developed by Weizhi Ji and his team at Kunming University of Science and Technology in Yunnan, China has made the attempts at chimeras - which have been ongoing since the 1970s - ...

Hi, I need some help from experts about primary cell culture. Im studying the transforming potentials of viral genes using rat embryo fibroblasts (REF), but I have some problems. First, I have transfected E1A- and Ha-ras-expressing plasmids to one million REF cells isolated from 14-day-old embryo as a control, and obtained about 80 foci per 100mm dish. But next time I did the same control experiment with REF from differnt rat, and no foci at all! Is there some variations between different rats of same species? I used Sprague-Dawley rats. Second, should I use supercoil plasmids or linearized ones? Till now I used supercoils. In many reference papers, there is no comment about the state of plasmids. If you know about these questions, please answer me. I would appreciate very much.   This is written by Chang Jun (Jeje).   E-mail : Jeje at   Pohang Univ.

CTR researchers have revealed the role of the OCT4 gene in human embryos in the first few days of development. This is the first time that genome editing has been used to study gene function in human embryos.
A computerized system that scans the animal using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The scan data is analyzed within the computer to determine if an embryo is present or to determine if scar tissue is present, or to determine the size of organs within the animal. The scan data is produced as digital pixel values, coded as gray scale values, within scan wave lines wherein the gray scale values represent types of tissue. The size of the embryo is defined by separating the embryo tissue from the surrounding muscle tissue of the uterus. The embryo is classified by size by comparing and ranking within like kinds of animals to determine the age of the embryo.
What are the main issues articulated in the Egli paper that raise at least some doubts about the main conclusions of Ma, et al. paper?. First, the Ma paper makes the unusual argument that HDR-driven gene editing occurred after CRISPR-Cas9-induced DNA breaks in the mutant paternal allele essentially exclusively using the normal maternal chromosome as a template within the same 1-cell embryo rather than via an introduced synthetic template. In fact, in some of the Ma papers studies no template was included so that CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing had to rely on endogenous DNA in the embryo for HDR. However, Egli, et al. point out that this is exceedingly unlikely because the male and female pronuclei are entirely physically separated in the 1-cell embryo (Figure 1e-f above). How could the maternal and paternal chromosomes have physically come together to mediate this HDR during meiosis? Hypothetically possible? I suppose, but its hard to imagine a likely mechanism.. What about HDR later during mitosis? ...
According to MIT Technology Review, the experiment was just an exercise in science - the embryos were not allowed to develop for more than a few days and were never meant to be implanted into a womb. In the new work, Technology Review reported, Mitalipov and his colleagues created human embryos using sperm donated by men with the genetic mutation that they planned to try to fix with CRISPR. But they only managed to make their desired DNA changes on a small number of cells, creating an effect known as mosaicism. It involves using molecular scissors to remove undesirable elements of gene sequencing and replace them with new DNA elements. The teams results are still pending publication, so well likely hear more details about the study in the future.. This is the kind of research that is essential if we are to know if its possible to safely and precisely make corrections in embryos DNA to fix disease-causing genes, legal scholar and bioethicist R. Alta Charo of the University of ...

On the contrary, it is an indication that the embryo has started breathing with his own lungs and that his condition is good.. Following 20 years of experience in incubation we know for sure that the best decision when to hatch is totally in the embryos hands; Even if we want to intervene, we dont have any knowledge at what stage of the process the embryo is in so intervening can only cause damage.. Any interference from the moment of the PIP (first hole) until the egg-shell full ring opening can cause the embryo to die. Only after the egg-shell had parted into two parts, it is possible to help, as we can see often in nature. ...
What does it feel like when the embryo implants - How many cells does an embryo have to be before it implants? When does cell division start? Cell division starts. Right after fertilization. The blastocyst is the preimplantation embryo. It has a varying cell number (30 to 200).
Script: During the first 8 weeks following fertilization, the developing human is called an embryo, which means growing within. This time, called the embryonic period, is characterized by the formation of most major body systems. ...

The transfer of donated embryos, or embryo donation is the transfer of embryos given by a couple (after IVF) to a recipient for the purpose of pregnancy.
In research published today in Nature, researchers at the University of Cambridge and the University of Nottingham demonstrate how pig embryos and human embryonic cells show remarkable similarities in the early stages of their development. By combining these two models, they hope to improve our understanding of the origins of diseases such as paediatric germ cell tumours and fetal abnormalities.

T]he choice of abortion is objectively immoral…. [A]s early as eight or ten weeks of gestation, the fetus has a fully formed, beating heart, a complete brain… a recognizably human form…. There are three important points we wish to make about this human embryo. First, it is from the start distinct from any cell of the mother or of the father. This is clear because it is growing in its own distinct direction. Its growth is internally directed to its own survival and maturation. Second, the embryo is human: it has the genetic makeup characteristic of human beings. Third, and most importantly, the embryo is a complete or whole organism, though immature. The human embryo, from conception onward, is fully programmed actively to develop himself or herself to the mature stage of a human being, and, unless prevented by disease or violence, will actually do so…. So, a human embryo (or fetus) is not something distinct from a human being; he or she is not an individual of any non-human or ...

(
  • When nonhuman mammalian development is compared with human development, the study subjects must be compared at the same developmental stage (fetal, perinatal, postnatal) When collected appropriately, data from experimental studies of nonhuman mammalian embryos elucidate important aspects of human facial development. (
  • For the human embryo, this represents the first two months of intrauterine development preceding the stages of the FETUS. (
  • In my opinion, if the embryos are from animals, the development derived from them would be an animal, with some human biological components. (
  • Some of these signs come from atavistic muscles, which are ancient and usually obsolete but sometimes reappear in embryos or adults as variations and anomalies, and have recently been discovered in human embryos by a team of evolutionary biologists at Howard University. (
  • Synapsid reptiles are human ancestors that lived during the Permian and Triassic periods and displayed mammalian characteristics. (
  • It might freak you out even more that, out of the 30 muscles that form in a human embryo by seven weeks, a third will either fuse or just vanish after 13 weeks. (
