Aquatic organisms are susceptible to waterborne nanoparticles and there is only limited understanding of the mechanisms by which these emerging contaminants affect biological processes. The unique properties of nanomaterials necessitate evaluation of standard toxicity testing techniques to...
Retinoic acid prevents alteration of neuronal morphology and locomotion of zebrafish embryos induced by ethanol exposure during gastrulationDownload
Ethanol (EtOH) exposure during development has been shown to lead to deficits in fine and gross motor control. In this study I used zebrafish embryos in the gastrulation stage to determine the developmental effects of a brief, 5-hour exposure to EtOH. I treated fertilized zebrafish eggs from 5.25...
Calcium/calmodulin dependent protein kinase 2 (CaMKII) is a multifunctional serine/threonine kinase that is highly abundant in the central nervous system. It plays important roles in many neuronal functions, including neurite extension and maturation, activity-dependent synaptic plasticity and...
The roles of Pbx and Meis TALE-class homeodomain transcription factors in vertebrate neural patterningDownload
One of the major goals of developmental biology is to understand how specialized groups of cells arise from an initially unspecified cell population. The vertebrate hindbrain is transiently segmented along its anterior-posterior axis into lineage-restricted compartments called rhombomeres, making...
