Repulsive guidance molecule (RGM) is a recently identified protein implicated in both axonal guidance and neural tube closure. The avoidance of chick RGM in the posterior optic tectum by growing temporal, but not nasal, retinal ganglion cell axons is thought to contribute to visual map formation. In contrast to ephrins, semaphorins, netrins and slits, no(More)
BACKGROUND Skeletal muscle lipid is associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes and may be altered by diet, physical activity, and weight loss. OBJECTIVE We explored the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for quantifying the lipid concentration of muscle tissue in vivo. DESIGN Fat-selective MR images of the lower leg were taken in 8(More)
For anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery using the anatomic approach of the double bundle concept it is helpful to describe the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundle using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), since this is the most important preoperative parameter next to the physical examination. The aim of this study was to distinguish both(More)
In the developing mammalian retina, horizontal neurons undergo a dramatic reorganization of their processes shortly after they migrate to their appropriate laminar position. This is an important process because it is now understood that the apical processes are important for establishing the regular mosaic of horizontal cells in the retina and proper(More)
Neuronal differentiation with respect to the acquisition of synaptic competence needs to be regulated precisely during neurogenesis to ensure proper formation of circuits at the right place and time in development. This regulation is particularly important for synaptic triads among photoreceptors, horizontal cells (HCs), and bipolar cells in the retina,(More)
