Chemotopic odour representations in the olfactory bulb are transferred to multiple forebrain areas and translated into appropriate output responses. However, a comprehensive projection map of bulbar output neurons at single-axon resolution is lacking in vertebrates. Here we unravel a projectome of the zebrafish olfactory bulb through genetic single-neuron(More)
Because mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) do not contribute to the formation of extraembryonic placenta when they are injected into blastocysts, it is believed that mESCs do not differentiate into trophoblast whereas human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) can express trophoblast markers when exposed to bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4) in vitro. To test(More)
Pheromones play vital roles for survival and reproduction in various organisms. In many fishes, prostaglandin F2α acts not only as a female reproductive hormone, facilitating ovulation and spawning, but also as a sex pheromone inducing male reproductive behaviors. Here, we unravel the molecular and neural circuit mechanisms underlying the pheromonal action(More)
