The organization of extrinsic neurons and their implications in the functional roles of the mushroom bodies in Drosophila melanogaster Meigen.
Although the importance of the Drosophila mushroom body in olfactory learning and memory has been stressed, virtually nothing is known about the brain regions to which it is connected. Using GolgiExpand

Development of Morphological Diversity of Dendrites in Drosophila by the BTB-Zinc Finger Protein Abrupt
Morphological diversity of dendrites contributes to specialized functions of individual neurons. In the present study, we examined the molecular basis that generates distinct morphological classes ofExpand

Gene expression profiling of the developing Drosophila CNS midline cells.
The Drosophila CNS midline cells constitute a specialized set of interneurons, motorneurons, and glia. The utility of the CNS midline cells as a neurogenomic system to study CNS development derivesExpand

XactMice: humanizing mouse bone marrow enables microenvironment reconstitution in a patient-derived xenograft model of head and neck cancer
The limitations of cancer cell lines have led to the development of direct patient-derived xenograft models. However, the interplay between the implanted human cancer cells and recruited mouseExpand

Expansion of Human and Murine Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells Ex Vivo without Genetic Modification Using MYC and Bcl-2 Fusion Proteins
The long-term repopulating hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) population can self-renew in vivo, support hematopoiesis for the lifetime of the individual, and is of critical importance in the context ofExpand

Inhibition of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 replication is enhanced by a combination of transdominant Tat and Rev proteins.
Mutation of either of two critical human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) regulatory proteins, Tat and Rev, results in marked defects in viral replication. Thus, inhibition of the function ofExpand

A Comparison of Midline and Tracheal Gene Regulation during Drosophila Development
Within the Drosophila embryo, two related bHLH-PAS proteins, Single-minded and Trachealess, control development of the central nervous system midline and the trachea, respectively. These two proteinsExpand

Leveraging Electronic Health Record Implementation to Facilitate Clinical and Operational Quality Improvement in an Ambulatory Surgical Clinic
The implementation of electronic health records is a challenging, complex process requiring significant resources. The temptation is to convert a paper process into electronic format. This strategyExpand

Shape analysis and classification of lgl-type and wild-type neurons
TLDR
We present a fully automated imaging technique that involves skeletonization and histogram-based features such as kurtosis to find and quantify discriminative morphological phenotypes that can be used to automatically distinguish normal wild-type neurons from lgl mutant neurons. Expand
