Neurons in the mammalian neocortex arise from asymmetric divisions of progenitors residing in the ventricular zone. While in most progenitor divisions, the mitotic spindle is parallel to the ventricular surface, some progenitors reorient the spindle and divide in oblique orientations. Here, we use conditional deletion and overexpression of mouse Inscuteable(More)
During mammalian neurogenesis, progenitor cells can divide with the mitotic spindle oriented parallel or perpendicular to the surface of the neuroepithelium. Perpendicular divisions are more likely to be asymmetric and generate one progenitor and one neuronal precursor. Whether the orientation of the mitotic spindle actually determines their asymmetric(More)
The A(2A)-adenosine receptor is a prototypical G(s) protein-coupled receptor but stimulates MAPK/ERK in a G(s)-independent way. The A(2A) receptor has long been known to undergo restricted collision coupling with G(s); the mechanistic basis for this mode of coupling has remained elusive. Here we visualized agonist-induced changes in mobility of the yellow(More)
The work addresses the NP-hard problem of scheduling a set of jobs to unrelated parallel machines with the overall objective of minimizing makespan. The solution presented proposes a greedy constructive algorithm followed by an application of a Variable Neighborhood Decent strategy that continually improves the incumbent solution until a local optimum is(More)
