Wingless signaling leads to an asymmetric response to decapentaplegic-dependent signaling during sense organ patterning on the notum of Drosophila melanogaster. (1/535)

Wnt and Decapentaplegic cell signaling pathways act synergistically in their contribution to macrochaete (sense organ) patterning on the notum of Drosophila melanogaster. The Wingless-signaling pathway was ectopically activated by removing Shaggy activity (the homologue of vertebrate glycogen synthase kinase 3) in mosaics. Proneural activity is asymmetric within the Shaggy-deficient clone of cells and shows a fixed "polarity" with respect to body axis, independent of the precise location of the clone. This asymmetric response indicates the existence in the epithelium of a second signal, which we suggest is Decapentaplegic. Ectopic expression of Decapentaplegic induces extra macrochaetes only in cells which also receive the Wingless signal. Activation of Hedgehog signaling generates a long-range signal which can promote macrochaete formation in the Wingless activity domain. This signal depends upon decapentaplegic function. Autonomous activation of the Wingless signal response in cells causes them to attenuate or sequester this signal. Our results suggest a novel patterning mechanism which determines sense organ positioning in Drosophila.  (+info)

Central processing of pulsed pheromone signals by antennal lobe neurons in the male moth Agrotis segetum. (2/535)

Male moths use female-produced pheromones as orientation cues during the mate-finding process. In addition to the needs of evaluating the quality and quantity of the pheromone signal, the male moth also needs to resolve the filamentous structure of the pheromone plume to proceed toward the releasing point successfully. To understand how a discontinuous olfactory signal is processed at the central level, we used intracellular recording methods to characterize the response patterns of antennal lobe (AL) neurons to pulsatile stimulation with the full female-produced pheromone blend and its single components in male turnip moths, Agrotis segetum. Air puffs delivered at frequencies of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 10 Hz were used to carry the stimulus. Two types of AL neurons were characterized according to their capabilities to resolve stimulus pulses. The most common type could resolve at least 1-Hz pulses, thus termed fast neurons; another type could not resolve any pulses, thus termed slow neurons. When fast neurons were excited by stimuli, they always displayed biphasic response patterns, a depolarization phase followed by a hyperpolarization phase. This pattern could be evoked by stimulation with both the single pheromone components and the blend. The pulse-resolving capability of the fast neurons correlated significantly with the size of the hyperpolarization phase. When the amplitude was higher and the fall time of the hyperpolarization faster, the neuron could follow more pulses per second. Moreover, interactions between different pheromone components eliciting different response patterns did not improve the pulse-resolving capability of fast neurons.  (+info)

Active signaling of leg loading and unloading in the cockroach. (3/535)

The ability to detect changes in load is important for effective use of a leg in posture and locomotion. While a number of limb receptors have been shown to encode increases in load, few afferents have been demonstrated to signal leg unloading, which occurs cyclically during walking and is indicative of slipping or perturbations. We applied mechanical forces to the cockroach leg at controlled rates and recorded activities of the tibial group of campaniform sensilla, mechanoreceptors that encode forces through the strains they produce in the exoskeleton. Discrete responses were elicited from the group to decreasing as well as increasing levels of leg loading. Discharges of individual afferents depended on the direction of force application, and unit responses were correlated morphologically with the orientation of the receptor's cuticular cap. No units responded bidirectionally. Although discharges to decreasing levels of load were phasic, we found that these bursts could effectively encode the rate of force decreases. These discharges may be important in indicating leg unloading in the step cycle during walking and could rapidly signal force decreases during perturbations or loss of ground support.  (+info)

A spatial map of olfactory receptor expression in the Drosophila antenna. (4/535)

Insects provide an attractive system for the study of olfactory sensory perception. We have identified a novel family of seven transmembrane domain proteins, encoded by 100 to 200 genes, that is likely to represent the family of Drosophila odorant receptors. Members of this gene family are expressed in topographically defined subpopulations of olfactory sensory neurons in either the antenna or the maxillary palp. Sensory neurons express different complements of receptor genes, such that individual neurons are functionally distinct. The isolation of candidate odorant receptor genes along with a genetic analysis of olfactory-driven behavior in insects may ultimately afford a system to understand the mechanistic link between odor recognition and behavior.  (+info)

Preferential expression of biotransformation enzymes in the olfactory organs of Drosophila melanogaster, the antennae. (5/535)

Biotransformation enzymes have been found in the olfactory epithelium of vertebrates. We now show that in Drosophila melanogaster, a UDP-glycosyltransferase (UGT), as well as a short chain dehydrogenase/reductase and a cytochrome P450 are expressed specifically or preferentially in the olfactory organs, the antennae. The evolutionarily conserved expression of biotransformation enzymes in olfactory organs suggests that they play an important role in olfaction. In addition, we describe five Drosophila UGTs belonging to two families. All five UGTs contain a putative transmembrane domain at their C terminus as is the case for vertebrate UGTs where it is required for enzymatic activity. The primary sequence of the C terminus, including part of the transmembrane domain, differs between the two families but is highly conserved not only within each Drosophila family, but also between the members of one of the Drosophila families and vertebrate UGTs. The partial overlap of the conserved primary sequence with the transmembrane domain suggests that this part of the protein is involved in specific interactions occurring at the membrane surface. The presence of different C termini in the two Drosophila families suggests that they interact with different targets, one of which is conserved between Drosophila and vertebrates.  (+info)

Prospero distinguishes sibling cell fate without asymmetric localization in the Drosophila adult external sense organ lineage. (6/535)

The adult external sense organ precursor (SOP) lineage is a model system for studying asymmetric cell division. Adult SOPs divide asymmetrically to produce IIa and IIb daughter cells; IIa generates the external socket (tormogen) and hair (trichogen) cells, while IIb generates the internal neuron and sheath (thecogen) cells. Here we investigate the expression and function of prospero in the adult SOP lineage. Although Prospero is asymmetrically localized in embryonic SOP lineage, this is not observed in the adult SOP lineage: Prospero is first detected in the IIb nucleus and, during IIb division, it is cytoplasmic and inherited by both neuron and sheath cells. Subsequently, Prospero is downregulated in the neuron but maintained in the sheath cell. Loss of prospero function leads to 'double bristle' sense organs (reflecting a IIb-to-IIa transformation) or 'single bristle' sense organs with abnormal neuronal differentiation (reflecting defective IIb development). Conversely, ectopic prospero expression results in duplicate neurons and sheath cells and a complete absence of hair/socket cells (reflecting a IIa-to-IIb transformation). We conclude that (1) despite the absence of asymmetric protein localization, prospero expression is restricted to the IIb cell but not its IIa sibling, (2) prospero promotes IIb cell fate and inhibits IIa cell fate, and (3) prospero is required for proper axon and dendrite morphology of the neuron derived from the IIb cell. Thus, prospero plays a fundamental role in establishing binary IIa/IIb sibling cell fates without being asymmetrically localized during SOP division. Finally, in contrast to previous studies, we find that the IIb cell divides prior to the IIa cell in the SOP lineage.  (+info)

Sibling cell fate in the Drosophila adult external sense organ lineage is specified by prospero function, which is regulated by Numb and Notch. (7/535)

Specification of cell fate in the adult sensory organs is known to be dependent on intrinsic and extrinsic signals. We show that the homeodomain transcription factor Prospero (Pros) acts as an intrinsic signal for the specification of cell fates within the mechanosensory lineage. The sensory organ precursors divide to give rise to two secondary progenitors - PIIa and PIIb. Pros is expressed in PIIb, which gives rise to the neuron and thecogen cells. Loss of Pros function affects the identity of PIIb and neurons fail to differentiate. Pros misexpression is sufficient for the transformation of PIIa to PIIb fate. The expression of Pros in the normal PIIb cell appears to be regulated by Notch signaling.  (+info)

An essential role for the Drosophila Pax2 homolog in the differentiation of adult sensory organs. (8/535)

The adult peripheral nervous system of Drosophila includes a complex array of mechanosensory organs (bristles) that cover much of the body surface of the fly. The four cells (shaft, socket, sheath, and neuron) which compose each of these organs adopt distinct fates as a result of cell-cell signaling via the Notch (N) pathway. However, the specific mechanisms by which these cells execute their conferred fates are not well understood. Here we show that D-Pax2, the Drosophila homolog of the vertebrate Pax2 gene, has an essential role in the differentiation of the shaft cell. In flies bearing strong loss-of-function mutations in the shaven function of D-Pax2, shaft structures specifically fail to develop. Consistent with this, we find that D-Pax2 protein is expressed in all cells of the bristle lineage during the mitotic (cell fate specification) phase of bristle development, but becomes sharply restricted to the shaft and sheath cells in the post-mitotic (differentiative) phase. Two lines of evidence described here indicate that D-Pax2 expression and function is at least in part downstream of cell fate specification mechanisms such as N signaling. First, we find that the lack of late D-Pax2 expression in the socket cell (the sister of the shaft cell) is controlled by N pathway activity; second, we find that loss of D-Pax2 function is epistatic to the socket-to-shaft cell fate transformation caused by reduced N signaling. Finally, we show that misexpression of D-Pax2 is sufficient to induce the production of ectopic shaft structures. From these results, we propose that D-Pax2 is a high-level transcriptional regulator of the shaft cell differentiation program, and acts downstream of the N signaling pathway as a specific link between cell fate determination and cell differentiation in the bristle lineage.  (+info)

During imaginal development of Drosophila, Suppressor of Hairless [Su(H)], an evolutionarily conserved transcription factor that mediates intracellular signalling by the Notch (N) receptor, controls successive alternative cell fate decisions leading to the differentiation of multicellular sensory organs. We describe here the distribution of the Su(H) protein in the wing disc epithelium throughout development of adult sense organs. Su(H) was found to be evenly distributed in the nuclei of all imaginal disc cells during sensory organ precursor cells selection. Thus differential expression and/or subcellular localization of Su(H) is not essential for its function. Soon after division of the pIIa secondary precursor cell, Su(H) specifically accumulates in the nucleus of the future socket cell. At the onset of differentiation of the socket cell, Su(H) is also detected in the cytoplasm. In this differentiating cell, N and deltex participate in the cytoplasmic retention of Su(H). Still, Su(H) does not ...
Asymmetric cell division in the Drosophila bristle lineage: from the polarization of sensory organ precursor cells to Notch‐mediated binary fate decision
The Drosophila gene atonal encodes a basic helix-loop-helix protein similar to those encoded by the proneural genes of the achaete-scute complex (AS-C). The AS-C are required in the Drosophila PNS for the selection of neural precursors of external sense organs. We have isolated mutants of atonal, which reveal that this gene encodes the proneural gene for chordotonal organs and photoreceptors. In atonal mutants, all observable adult chordotonal organs, and almost all embryonic chordotonal organs fail to form; all adult photoreceptors are missing. For both types of sense organ, this defect is already apparent at the level of precursor formation. Therefore it is a failure in the epidermal-neural decision process i.e. a proneural defect. The failure to form photoreceptors results in atrophy of the atonal mutant imaginal disc, due to apoptosis and lack of stimulation of division. Lack of photoreceptors should also eliminate signalling that arises from differentiating photoreceptors and is required ...

Birds are bipedal animals with a center of gravity rostral to the insertion of the hindlimbs. This imposes special demands on keeping balance when moving on the ground. Recently, specializations in the lumbosacral region have been suggested to function as a sense organ of equilibrium which is involved in the control of walking. Morphological, electrophysiological, behavioral and embryological evidence for such a function is reviewed. Birds have two nearly independent kinds of locomotion and it is suggested that two different sense organs play an important role in their respective control: the vestibular organ during flight and the lumbosacral system during walking.

Process of perception of knowledge As per ayurvedic perspectives, the process of cognition starts from within a person. The soul expresses will for perception of knowledge through mind. The mind then connects with the particular sense to fulfill the will. The sense searches and connects with the source to know about that particular object. The sense organ specific intellect plays important role of deciding good/bad, correct/incorrect things for the living being. Thus, the process of perception of knowledge is completed by coordination of sense organ, sense, intellect, mind and soul. The knowledge gained by the soul is self-knowledge. It is stored in the memory and reminded whenever required. The contemporary medical system emphasizes on stimulus and receptor theory. The external stimulus is received by the particular sense organ and conveyed to brain. This is done through afferent neuronal pathways. The brain then reacts to that particular stimulus and express specific action through efferent ...

In order to distinguish between relevant and extraneous stimuli, insects have adapted specialized processes to perceive cues that are beneficial for survival and proliferation. Volatile molecules in the environment can stimulate olfactory receptors (ORs) and gustatory receptors (GRs) in chemosensory organs called sensilla. Specialized proteins located within these sensilla guide and assist chemosensory molecules to the receptors, which then trigger a transduction pathway that elicits behavioral responses. Sensory Neuron Membrane Proteins (SNMPs) are transmembrane proteins found on both gustatory and olfactory sensory organs in insects. There are two forms of these proteins, SNMP-1 and SNMP-2. InDrosophila melanogaster, the function of the SNMPs is currently unknown, but it is thought to contribute to proper recognition of pheromones secreted by maleDrosophila. To determine the role of SNMP-2 inDrosophila, we reduced the gene expression of SNMP-2 by targeting the gene with RNA-mediated gene interface

Because you have senses you experience life. You taste, feel, see, touch and hear things. The sum total of everything you take in through the senses ultimately makes up your perception of life.. The simplest way to realize the importance of sense organs is to imagine not having one.. For today lets stick with the example of the sense of sight. Imagine if you lost it all of a sudden. Imagine how your life would change. You wouldnt be able to drive a car, see beautiful flowers and trees. It wouldnt make sense to watch a movie or go to the theater. You couldnt see the eyes of your beloved (if you have one) or your children. Youd have to learn to keep your house mega organized so you could find things, you would have to learn braille and on and on.. Our senses give us so much, yet we give back so little in return.

The pattern of the sensory bristles in the fruit fly Drosophila is remarkably reproducible. Each bristle arises from a sensory organ precursor (SOP) cell that is selected, through a lateral inhibition process, from a cluster of proneural cells. Although this process is well characterized, the mechanism ensuring its robustness remains obscure. Using probabilistic modeling, we defined the sources of error in SOP selection and examined how they depend on the underlying molecular circuit. We found that rapid inhibition of the neural differentiation of nonselected cells, coupled with high cell-to-cell variability in the timing of selection, is crucial for accurate SOP selection. Cell-autonomous interactions (cis interactions) between the Notch receptor and its ligands Delta or Serrate facilitate accurate SOP selection by shortening the effective delay between the time when the inhibitory signal is initiated in one cell and the time when it acts on neighboring cells, suggesting that selection relies ...

The Senses There are five senses; smell, sight, touch, taste and hearing. Balance is now thought of as a sense. Touch detects pressure, pain and hot and cold substances. Our senses are based on receptor cells and nerve endings, which combine to form the sense organ. Receptors respond to heat, light, pressure and chemicals. They are forms of energy, which are converted to electrical impulses and produce a message, which is sent along the neurons.
The sense organs connect the nervous system to the external environment. They are the sources of stimuli that cause a response in the nervous system, and they a
The nuts and bolts of how body and mind are one involves some simple biochemistry. To begin with, virtually every cell in the body is studded with thousands of tiny structures called receptors. Like the sense organs - the eyes, nose, and ears - the job of the receptors is to pick up signals coming at them from the surrounding space. Theyre so important that a full 40 percent of our DNA is devoted to making sure that theyre perfectly reproduced from generation to generation.. Once the receptors receive a signal, the information is transferred to deep within the cells interior, where tiny engines roar into action and initiate key processes. Data coming in this way directs cell division and growth, cell migration for attacking enemies and making repairs, and cell metabolism to conserve or spend energy - to name just a few of the receptor-activated activities.. The signal comes from other cells and is carried by a juice that we call an informational substance. These juices from the brain, ...

I have to be honest, I had A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston for months, but wasnt sure about reading it because I havent been in the mood for YA. I also read some reviews and people kind of liked it, but I didnt read any reviews of people who loved. So I kept postponing and postponing reading it, until one-day couple of days ago when I didnt know what to read due to my mood. I thought, okay, lets give this one a go, if I dont like it by the 30% I will DNF it and that will be it. A Thousand Nights is the first ever book I start thinking I will end up DNF-ing and Oh boy, was I wrong! E.K. Johnstons writing sucked me in from the very first pages and didnt let me go until the very end and I loved every minute of it ...
Ac and Sc are master transcriptional activators of ES organ development in Drosophila. Nuclear actin is an essential component of the basal transcription machinery and the chromatin remodeling complex. Our study is the first to show a specific association between actin and Ac and Sc in nuclei. Supported by our in vitro and in vivo data in neural precursor gene expression and ES organ formation, we propose that nuclear actin is required for Ac (and Sc)-Da-mediated transcriptional activation in SOP differentiation.. Our results show that Ac and Sc associates with nuclear but not cytoplasmic actin, suggesting that actin protein alone might not be sufficient to maintain a stable interaction with Ac (and Sc). In the nucleus, actin associates with RNA polymerases and nucleosome-remodeling complexes. Recent studies also show that subfamilies of actin-related proteins, the major binding partner of actin, specifically localize in nuclei and act as crucial components in chromatin function (for reviews, ...
In a paper with the refreshingly straightforward title Buddenbrockia is a Cnidarian Worm, researchers reported in Science on a myxozoan that is not simply a passive lump of parasitic cells. In the words of the authors of the Science paper, Buddenbrockia worms are highly active, with continuous and vigorous sinuous writhing within the body cavity of bryozoan hosts. Once they bail out on their moss-animal hosts (they are malacosporans), they continue to undergo repeated coiling and straightening. Under the microscope, they look uncannily like a nematode worm -- a ubiquitous bilaterally symmetrical soil denizen that is unquestionably not a cnidarian.. But there were problems with Buddenbrockias status as a cnidarian. To start with, they seem distinctly bilateral and their worm-like behavior even more so. Some elongate cnidarians do exist, but none move as Buddenbrockia does. Though they lack anything resembling a nervous system, gut, or external sense organs, theres also the matter of ...

The Achaete (Ac) protein, a transcriptional regulator of the basic-helix-loop-helix (bHLH) type, confers upon ectodermal cells the ability to become neural precursors. Its temporally and spatially regulated expression, together with that of the related Scute (Sc) protein, helps define the pattern of Drosophila melanogaster sensory organs. We have examined the transcriptional control of the ac gene and shown, using in vivo assays, that several E-boxes, putative interacting sites for bHLH proteins, present in the ac promoter are most important for ac regulation. They most likely mediate ac self-stimulation and sc trans-activation. We also demonstrate that ac transcription is negatively regulated in vivo by the gene extramacrochaetae (emc) in a manner dependent on Ac and Sc products. emc encodes an HLH protein that lacks the basic region and presumably antagonizes Ac and Sc function by sequestering these proteins in complexes unable to interact with DNA. Our results strongly support the model of ...
The sense bases include two sets of six: six sense organs (or internal sense bases) and six sense objects (or external sense bases). Based on these six pairs of sense bases, a number of mental factors arise. Thus, for instance, when an ear and sound are present, the associated consciousness (Pali: viññāṇa) arises. The arising of these three elements (dhātu) - ear, sound and ear-related consciousness - lead to what is known as contact (phassa) which in turn causes a pleasant or unpleasant or neutral feeling or sensation (vedanā) to arise. It is from such a feeling that craving (taṇhā) arises. (See Figure 1.) Such an enumeration can be found, for instance, in the Six Sextets discourse (Chachakka Sutta, MN 148), where the six sextets (six sense organs, six sense objects, six sense-specific types of consciousness, six sense-specific types of contact, six sense-specific types of sensation and six sense-specific types of craving) are examined and found to be empty of self.[14] ...
Fishes rely on both chemical and tactile senses to orient themselves to avoid predators, and to detect and taste food. This is likely achieved by highly coordinated reception of signals by mechano- and chemosensory receptors in fish. A small co-receptor from zebrafish, receptor activity modifying protein (RAMP)-like triterpene glycoside receptor (RL-TGR), was previously found to be involved in recognition of triterpene glycosides, a family of naturally occurring compounds that act as chemical defenses in various prey species. However, its localization, function, and how it impacts sensory organ development in vivo is not known. Here we show that RL-TGR is expressed in zebrafish in both i) apical microvilli of the chemosensory cells of taste buds including the epithelium of lips and olfactory epithelium, and ii) mechanosensory cells of neuromasts belonging to the lateral line system. Loss-of-function analyses of RL-TGR resulted in significantly decreased number of neuromasts in the posterior ...

Author(s): Reeves, Nick Lee | Abstract: In 1975 Antonio García-Bellido proposed that selector genes such as the homeotic transcription factors do not themselves participate in the differentiation of the body segments they specify but instead activate (or select) a set of downstream realisator genes that encode the proteins that carry out cell differentiation (Garcia- Bellido, 1975). Since then numerous genetic and molecular studies of development have borne out this view. The proneural transcription factors act as selector genes to specify neural cell types in the ectoderm. I have taken a systematic genomics approach to discover the set of realisator genes activated by the proneural transcription factors (proneural genetic program) in the developing peripheral nervous system. This approach has led to the discovery of 30 new genes expressed specifically in the sensory organ anlagen (proneural clusters and sensory organ precursors). These new genes encode a diverse array of implied protein functions
During development of the Drosophila peripheral nervous system, a sensory organ precursor (SOP) cell undergoes rounds of asymmetric divisions to generate four distinct cells of a sensory organ.

The main sensory organ of prosobranch molluscs is a structure with many folds called osphradium, located in the gill cavity. The current or water passes through the osphradium allowing the snail determine some aspects of the chemical composition of the water that surrounds it (the smell). Only the most primitive opisthobranchs still have the osphradium because the immense majority have evolved and have developed new sensory structures such as sensory mounds or oral tentacles, around the mouth.. The most obvious sensory organs in the opisthobranchs are the rinophores, which are horn-shaped structures they have on the head. Little is known about the function of rinophores, although it seems they are very important organs. The tissue that covers them is not much different from other parts of the body but for the absence of secretory glands. Although there is no direct evidence, most authors agree that the role of rinophores is to find food and other individuals of their same species to ...
Supervisor: Clare Baker. Fundamental questions in biology include how different organs and cell types are specified during development, for which the lateral line system of fishes and aquatic amphibians provides an excellent model. Ancestrally within jawed vertebrates, the lateral line system comprises lines of mechanosensory neuromasts, containing hair cells - like vestibular inner ear hair cells - that respond to local water movement (touch at a distance), flanked on the head by electrosensory ampullary organs, containing electroreceptors that respond to weak bioelectric fields (primarily used for hunting). A series of lateral line placodes (bilateral patches of thickened ectoderm) on the head elongate to form sensory ridges. A line of neuromasts forms along the centre of each ridge, while ampullary organs differentiate on the flanks. Hence, the lateral line is a superb model for understanding the mechanisms underlying the diversification of different types of sensory organs. Lateral ...
Accurate proteolytic processing of neuropeptide and peptide hormone precursors by members of the kexin/furin family of proteases is key to determining both the identities and activities of signaling peptides. Here we identify amontillado (amon), the Drosophila melanogaster homolog of the mammalian neuropeptide processing protease PC2, and show that in contrast to vertebrate PC2, amontillado expression undergoes extensive regulation in the nervous system during development. In situ hybridization reveals that expression of amontillado is restricted to the final stages of embryogenesis when it is found in anterior sensory structures and in only 168 cells in the brain and ventral nerve cord. After larvae hatch from their egg shells, the sensory structures and most cells in the CNS turn off or substantially reduce amontillado expression, suggesting that amontillado plays a specific role late in embryogenesis. Larvae lacking the chromosomal region containing amontillado show no gross anatomical ...
Animal cells endure dramatic actin-dependent changes in shape as they progress through mitosis - they round up at mitotic entry, elongate at anaphase and split into two at cytokinesis. In this thesis I explore the role of Moesin, an actin-membrane crosslinker and the sole ERM protein expressed in Drosophila, in orchestrating rearrangements of the actin cortex and morphological changes in epithelial cells undergoing mitosis. To perform my studies I used the fly notum and sensory organ precursor (SOP) cells therein as a model system. In this thesis I show that Moesin is required for the stabilisation of the actomyosin cortex at metaphase. This mechanism is dependent upon phosphorylation of Moesin by the Slik kinase, which activates the ERM protein. Reduced levels of Moesin or Slik lead to myosin-II-driven cortical instabilities. Cortical stabilisation in mitotic SOP cells ensures the efficient accumulation of fate determinants at the plasma membrane. At mitotic exit, a pool of active, ...
The p53 pathway is differentially activated in response to distinct DNA damage, leading to alternative phenotypic outcomes in mammalian cells. Recent evidence suggests that p53 expression dynamics play an important role in the differential regulation of cell fate, but questions remain as to how p53 dynamics and the subsequent cellular response are modulated by variable DNA damage. We identified a novel, bimodal switch of p53 dynamics modulated by DNA-damage strength that is crucial for cell-fate control. After low DNA damage, p53 underwent periodic pulsing and cells entered cell-cycle arrest. After high DNA damage, p53 underwent a strong monotonic increase and cells activated apoptosis. We found that the damage dose-dependent bimodal switch was due to differential Mdm2 upregulation, which controlled the alternative cell fates mainly by modulating the induction level and pro-apoptotic activities of p53. Our findings not only uncover a new mode of regulation for p53 dynamics and cell fate, but also

Fields, Douglas, The Sharks Electric Sense (Scientific American, August 2007, Vol 297, Number 2), page 76.. That is similar to one pole on the coast of Jacksonville, Florida and the other in New York City, or one pole in Southern Ireland and the other on the coast of Northern Spain, or one pole off the Philippine Islands and the other in Saigon. What can possibly explain this incredible ability?. Evolution has an explanation. Evolution explains that sharks accidentally developed the electric sense organs over a long period of time. A series of very fortunate accidental changes that were shaped by the survival of the fittest slowly changed the nerve endings in the sharks face and, by a series of other fortunate mutations, the nerve fibers installed themselves in the correct portion of the sharks brain. Ultimately all of the sense organs connected themselves to the right place in the sharks brain and fortunately the receptors in the brain were programmed to perceive the position of each one ...

The excitation of lateral line sense organs (neuromasts) might be expected to depend on differences of movement between the liquid inside the main lateral line canals (the ones that contain the neuromasts) and the walls of these canals. We have investigated this net movement in relation to events in the water around fish. Liquid displacements inside a given part of a main lateral line canal of the sprat (Sprattus sprattus (L.)) are, at any one frequency, linearly related to those in the medium (sea water) adjacent to this part. For the parts of the canal system studied, and below about 80 Hz, the ratio of displacement inside the canal to that in the medium falls with frequency, i. e. the displacement inside the canal follows the velocity in the medium. Sea water displacements in a given length of a main lateral line canal system are proportional to the component of the external velocity that is parallel to the canal. For this component the ratio of displacements inside and outside the lateral ...

Improve information flow. Any inputs that improve our ability to orient and communicate will inhibit the stress response. One of the most powerful ways of doing this is to offer stillness, space and allow the system to orient to resources and the environment in present time. The extra information from the whole body and the whole field will allow contextualisation of cycling and speedy stories and slow down the stress response. The quick response to the question Am I Safe? is meditated by centres deep in the brain. Simply, we can talk of the limbic system and the brain stem controlling dissociation and activation. These deep brain centres receive information from three sources; from the cortex down; from the external senses in; and from the body coming up. The figure above attempts to show this flow of information (5).. If we are overwhelmed, wherever the information comes from, the amygdala will trigger communication, mobilisation or freezing (Porges 2003). Orienting to the flow of ...

Gastrotrichs are bilaterally symmetric, with a transparent body and a flat underside. Many species have a pair of short projections at the rear end. The body is covered with cilia, especially about the mouth and on the lower surface. Its two end projections have cement glands. This is a double-gland system where one gland secretes the glue and another secretes a de-adhesive.[2] Like many microscopic animals, their movement is mainly powered by hydrostatics. Gastrotrichs develop to a particular number of cells; further growth comes only from an increase in cell size. As is typical for such small animals, there are no respiratory or circulatory organs. Nitrogenous waste is probably excreted through the body wall, as part of respiration. The nervous system is relatively simple. The brain consists of two ganglia, one on either side of the pharynx. Each ganglion gives rise to a single nerve cord, which runs the length of the body and includes further, smaller ganglia.[2] The main sense organs are the ...
If you feel confused about what you should be reading and believing on food labels, you arent alone! Integrated Learning Therapy practitioners focus on young people so lets see if we can offer some guidelines to steer you in the right direction regarding your children.. First of all, it is necessary to realise that labels are there for two main reasons. They tell us the name of the food or drink that we are looking at, what ingredients it is made of, its weight and where it comes from. They also are designed to tempt us into buying the product. It is their job to look attractive - hence they are colourful, have appealing pictures (aimed at the children) and try to highlight the nutritional and health credentials of the content (aimed at parents). Unfortunately, we cant always believe the hype on the packaging. We simply have to be prepared to spend a few moments reading the label.. Listing ingredients. Ingredients are listed in their weight-descending order at the time the product is being ...
