The field of pancreas development has markedly expanded over the last decade, significantly advancing our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that control pancreas organogenesis. This growth has been fueled, in part, by the need to generate new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of diabetes. The creation of sophisticated genetic tools in mice(More)
The neuronal apoptosis inhibitory protein (NAIP) is a constituent of the inflammasome and a key component of the innate immune system. Here we use immunofluorescence to position NAIP within the cytokinetic apparatus, contiguous to chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), Centralspindlin, PRC1 and KIF4A. During metaphase, NAIP accumulates in the mitotic spindle(More)
Humans employ an active visual system to gather visual data from the surrounding environment. In addition to continually re-focusing the lens and adjusting the iris to control the exposure of light on to the retina, the eye constantly moves so that specific information can be focused on to the fovea – the part of the retina capable of defining fine detail.(More)
