We followed the development of the nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (NO-cGMP) system during locust embryogenesis in whole mount nervous systems and brain sections by using various cytochemical techniques. We visualized NO-sensitive neurons by cGMP immunofluorescence after incubation with an NO donor in the presence of the soluble guanylyl cyclase(More)
Optical Projection Tomography (OPT) proved to be useful for the three-dimensional tracking of fluorescence signals in biological model organisms with sizes up to several millimeters. This tomographic technique detects absorption as well as fluorescence to create multimodal three-dimensional data. While the absorption of a specimen is detected very fast(More)
Nuclear bodies are distinct subnuclear structures. The survival of motoneuron (SMN) gene is mutated or deleted in patients with the neurodegenerative disease spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The gene product SMN is a marker protein for one class of nuclear bodies denoted as nuclear gems. SMN has also been found in Cajal bodies, which co-localize with gems in(More)
