Comprehensive knowledge of the brain's wiring diagram is fundamental for understanding how the nervous system processes information at both local and global scales. However, with the singular exception of the C. elegans microscale connectome, there are no complete connectivity data sets in other species. Here we report a brain-wide, cellular-level,(More)
UNLABELLED An increasingly powerful approach for studying brain circuits relies on targeting genetically encoded sensors and effectors to specific cell types. However, current approaches for this are still limited in functionality and specificity. Here we utilize several intersectional strategies to generate multiple transgenic mouse lines expressing high(More)
Nervous systems are composed of various cell types, but the extent of cell type diversity is poorly understood. We constructed a cellular taxonomy of one cortical region, primary visual cortex, in adult mice on the basis of single-cell RNA sequencing. We identified 49 transcriptomic cell types, including 23 GABAergic, 19 glutamatergic and 7 non-neuronal(More)
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp) is essential for optimal T cell activation. Patients with WAS exhibit both immunodeficiency and a marked susceptibility to systemic autoimmunity. We investigated whether alterations in Treg function might explain these paradoxical observations. While WASp-deficient (WASp(-/-)) mice exhibited normal thymic Treg(More)
Cytoskeletal regulation of cell adhesion is vital to the organization of multicellular structures. The focal adhesion protein zyxin emerged as a key regulator of actin assembly because zyxin recruits Enabled/vasodilator-stimulated phospho-proteins (Ena/VASP) to promote actin assembly. Zyxin also localizes to the sites of cell-cell adhesion and is thought to(More)
The cytokine thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) drives immature B cell development in vitro and may regulate T helper type 2 responses. Here we analyzed the involvement of TSLP in B cell development in vivo with a doxycycline-inducible, keratin 5-driven transgene encoding TSLP (K5-TSLP). K5-TSLP-transgenic mice given doxycycline showed an influx of(More)
Although Ca2+ plays a critical function in relaying intracellular messages, the role of subcellular organelles in the dynamics of intracellular Ca2+ still remains largely unexplored. We recently demonstrated that secretory granules can signal their own export from the cell by releasing Ca2+ to the cytosol. Oscillations and release of Ca2+ in/from the(More)
Free-space optical (FSO) communication, or laser communication, is capable of providing high-rate communication links, meeting the growing downlink demand of space missions, including those on small-satellite platforms. FSO communication takes advantage of the high-gain nature of narrow laser beams to achieve higher link efficiency than traditional(More)
