Taste Representations in the Drosophila Brain
Drosophila taste compounds with gustatory neurons on many parts of the body, suggesting that a fly detects both the location and quality of a food source. For example, activation of taste neurons onExpand

A Glial K/Cl Transporter Controls Neuronal Receptive Ending Shape by Chloride Inhibition of an rGC
Neurons receive input from the outside world or from other neurons through neuronal receptive endings (NREs). Glia envelop NREs to create specialized microenvironments; however, glial functions atExpand

The Arf GAP CNT-2 Regulates the Apoptotic Fate in C. elegans Asymmetric Neuroblast Divisions
During development, all cells make the decision to live or die. Although the molecular mechanisms that execute the apoptotic program are well defined, less is known about how cells decide whether toExpand

Asymmetric Neuroblast Divisions Producing Apoptotic Cells Require the Cytohesin GRP-1 in Caenorhabditis elegans
Cytohesins are Arf guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) that regulate membrane trafficking and actin cytoskeletal dynamics. We report here that GRP-1, the sole Caenorhabditis elegans cytohesin,Expand

Micropropagation of Achras sapota through enhanced axillary branching
Abstract A complete protocol for micropropagation of Achras sapota using cotyledonary node segments has been developed. Multiple shoots were induced in vitro from nodal segments throughExpand

Physical exertion exacerbates decline in the musculature of an animal model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Significance Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a degenerative disease affecting tens of thousands of people in the United States alone. Much remains unknown about the disease, including the chain ofExpand

PROS-1/Prospero Is a Major Regulator of the Glia-Specific Secretome Controlling Sensory-Neuron Shape and Function in C. elegans.
Sensory neurons are an animal's gateway to the world, and their receptive endings, the sites of sensory signal transduction, are often associated with glia. Although glia are known to promoteExpand

The T-Box Gene tbx-2, the Homeobox Gene egl-5 and the Asymmetric Cell Division Gene ham-1 Specify Neural Fate in the HSN/PHB Lineage
Understanding how neurons adopt particular fates is a fundamental challenge in developmental neurobiology. To address this issue, we have been studying a Caenorhabditis elegans lineage that producesExpand

Asymmetric divisions, aggresomes and apoptosis.
Asymmetric cell division (ACD) is a fundamental process used to generate cell diversity during metazoan development that occurs when a cell divides to generate daughter cells adopting distinct fates.Expand

Glia-Neuron Interactions in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Glia are abundant components of animal nervous systems. Recognized 170 years ago, concerted attempts to understand these cells began only recently. From these investigations glia, once consideredExpand
