Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs), the major glia cells in the olfactory system, have been extensively studied because of their ability to promote axonal growth and regeneration. Whether it could facilitate synaptogenesis is an important, but remains as yet an unanswered question. We have identified a subgroup of Wnt signaling-activated OECs,(More)
N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (Ndrg2) is well-known for its involvement in tumor cell proliferation and differentiation. This promotes us to investigate whether Ndrg2 also functions in neurogenesis, during which some cellular events are similar to that of tumorigenesis. As the first step in exploring the role of Ndrg2 in neurogenesis, here we performed(More)
Lead is a heavy metal and important environmental toxicant and nerve poison that can destruction many functions of the nervous system. Lead poisoning is a medical condition caused by increased levels of lead in the body. Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and issues, including the central nervous system. It(More)
Stomata are highly specialized epidermal structures that control transpiration and gas exchange between plants and the environment. Signal networks underlying stomatal development have been previously uncovered but much less is known about how signals involved in stomatal development are transmitted to RNA polymerase II (Pol II or RPB), which plays a(More)
For over 50 years, researchers have focused on the mechanisms underlying the important roles of the cytoskeleton in controlling the cell growth direction and cell expansion. In our study, we performed ethyl methane sulfonate mutagenesis on Col-0 background and identified two new CONSTITUTIVE EXPRESSER OF PATHOGENESIS RELATED GENES 1 (CPR1) alleles with(More)
