A subset of octopaminergic neurons that promotes feeding initiation in Drosophila melanogaster.

Related Articles A subset of octopaminergic neurons that promotes feeding initiation in Drosophila melanogaster. PLoS One. 2018;13(6):e0198362 Authors: Youn H, Kirkhart C, Chia J, Scott K Abstract Octopamine regulates feeding behavioral responses in Drosophila melanogaster, however the molecular and circuit mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. Here, we investigated the role of a subset of […]

Creating Lineage Trajectory Maps Via Integration of Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing and Lineage Tracing: Integrating transgenic lineage tracing and single-cell RNA-sequencing is a robust approach for mapping developmental lineage trajectories and cell fate changes.

Creating Lineage Trajectory Maps Via Integration of Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing and Lineage Tracing: Integrating transgenic lineage tracing and single-cell RNA-sequencing is a robust approach for mapping developmental lineage trajectories and cell fate changes. Bioessays. 2018 Jun 26;: Authors: Fletcher RB, Das D, Ngai J Abstract Mapping the paths that stem and progenitor cells take en route […]

Mitochondrial Subtype Identification and Characterization.

Mitochondrial Subtype Identification and Characterization. Curr Protoc Cytom. 2018 Jun 26;:e41 Authors: Daniele JR, Heydari K, Dillin A Abstract Healthy, functional mitochondria are central to many cellular and physiological phenomena, including aging, metabolism, and stress resistance. A key feature of healthy mitochondria is a high membrane potential (Δψ) or charge differential (i.e., proton gradient) between […]

Importance of investing in adolescence from a developmental science perspective.

Related Articles Importance of investing in adolescence from a developmental science perspective. Nature. 2018 02 21;554(7693):441-450 Authors: Dahl RE, Allen NB, Wilbrecht L, Suleiman AB Abstract This review summarizes the case for investing in adolescence as a period of rapid growth, learning, adaptation, and formational neurobiological development. Adolescence is a dynamic maturational period during which […]

Widespread Translational Remodeling during Human Neuronal Differentiation.

Related Articles Widespread Translational Remodeling during Human Neuronal Differentiation. Cell Rep. 2017 Nov 14;21(7):2005-2016 Authors: Blair JD, Hockemeyer D, Doudna JA, Bateup HS, Floor SN Abstract Faithful cellular differentiation requires temporally precise activation of gene expression programs, which are coordinated at the transcriptional and translational levels. Neurons express the most complex set of mRNAs of […]
