    Abstract : The relationship between amount of adipose tissue, the Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 diabetes has been recognized for several years. However, the mechanisms for this remain to be clarified. Not all obese individuals develop insulin resistance or Type 2 diabetes and these perturbations are also seen in non-obese individuals.

    Abstract : The transformation of an initially uniform population of epiblast cells into an intricately complex central nervous system (CNS) is one of the most fascinating processes during embryonic development. Presumptive neural cells are initially specified as cells of forebrain character. READ MORE
