The growth of axons and dendrites during development and regeneration is regulated by cues in the environment. Many of these cues regulate the actin cytoskeleton of the protrusive structures (like filopodia) of the growth cone that are essential for detecting and responding to cues. Nerve growth factor, which promotes the formation of protrusive structures,(More)
Axons growing in the developing nervous system are guided by cues in the environment which act at the growth cone. So far, the initial cytoskeletal target of these cues has been found to be the network of actin filaments in the peripheral region of the growth cone. Laminins are constituents of the extracellular matrix which promote axonal growth. They exert(More)
Angiogenesis is increasingly recognized as an important prognosticator associated with the progression of lymphoma and as an attractive target for novel modalities. We report a previously unrecognized mechanism by which lymphoma endothelium facilitates the growth and dissemination of lymphoma by interacting with circulated T cells and suppresses the(More)
Aging and carcinogenesis coincide with the accumulation of DNA damage and mutations in stem and progenitor cells. Molecular mechanisms that influence responses of stem and progenitor cells to DNA damage remain to be delineated. Here, we show that niche positioning and Wnt signaling activity modulate the sensitivity of intestinal stem and progenitor cells(More)
Dietary restriction (DR) improves health, delays tissue aging, and elongates survival in flies and worms. However, studies on laboratory mice and nonhuman primates revealed ambiguous effects of DR on lifespan despite improvements in health parameters. In this study, we analyzed consequences of adult-onset DR (24 h to 1 yr) on hematopoietic stem cell (HSC)(More)
