The Eph receptors and their cognate ephrin ligands play key roles in many aspects of nervous system development. These interactions typically occur within an individual tissue type, serving either to guide axons to their terminal targets or to define boundaries between the rhombomeres of the hindbrain. We have identified a novel role for the Caenorhabditis(More)
Microorganisms and selected proteinaceous substances were directly tagged with fluorescein isothiocyanate. This approach suggested a possible application for detection of extraterrestrial life. A stable and apparently specific linkage was formed with protein, and nonprotein substances were readily destained. Soil and atmospheric debris did not exhibit any(More)
Fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled beta-glucosidase was used as a simple staining reagent with selected gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Staining in situ appeared to be dependent on the presence of accessible glycosidic-type linkages in the bacterial cell wall. Extensive wall damage or lysis did not occur when stained cells were suspended in(More)
