Dendritic spines undergo continuous remodeling during development of the nervous system. Their stability is essential for maintaining a functional neuronal circuit. Spine dynamics and stability of cortical excitatory pyramidal neurons have been explored extensively in mammalian animal models. However, little is known about spiny interneurons in(More)
Cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) are promising tools for transducing presynthesized therapeutic molecules which possess low membrane permeability. The poor efficiency of cellular uptake and unexpected cellular localization are still the main obstacles to the development of drug delivery by using CPPs. In this study, we investigated the effect of a(More)
Optokinetic response (OKR) is a behavior that an animal vibrates its eyes to follow a rotating grating around it. It has been widely used to assess the visual functions of larval zebrafish. Nevertheless, the standard protocol for larval fish is not yet readily applicable in adult zebrafish. Here, we introduce how to measure the OKR of adult zebrafish with(More)
Monomethyl poly(ethylene glycol) (mPEG)-modified bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugates (BSA-mPEG) were obtained by the mild Cu(I)-mediated cycloaddition reaction of azided BSA (BSA-N(3) ) and alkyne-terminated mPEG. The structure and characteristics of BSA-mPEG conjugates were thoroughly investigated. There were about two PEG chains conjugated onto each BSA(More)
As a means of visual function testing and visual related mutants screening, the optokinetic response (OKR) and the optomotor response (OMR) behaviour tests are simple and effective tools for visual functional testing, which have been widely used in studying zebrafish larvae. However, adult zebrafish OKR analysis method is rarely reported. In this study, the(More)
Zebrafish is an excellent model to study central nervous system (CNS) axonal degeneration and regeneration since we can observe these processes in vivo and in real time in transparent larvae. Previous studies have shown that Mauthner cell (M-cell) axon regenerates poorly after mechanical spinal cord injury. Inconsistent with this result, however, we have(More)
