  1. 1. Specification of Dorsal and Intermediate Telencephalic Character

    Author : Matthew Marklund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; telencephalon; forebrain; dorsoventral patterning; WNT; FGF; RA; retinoid-mediated signaling; development; specification; cortex; striatal; intermediate; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The telencephalon is the most highly evolved region of the vertebrate central nervous system (CNS). The major structures of the telencephalon - the cortex and basal ganglia – derive from the dorsally positioned pallium and the ventrally positioned subpallium, respectively. READ MORE

  2. 2. Early Rostrocaudal Patterning of the CNS

    Author : Ulrika Nordström; Thomas Edlund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CNS development; neural patterning; neural specification; Wnt; FGF; RA; Isthmic organizer; motor neurons; rostrocaudal patterning.; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi;

    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

  3. 3. The Role of miRNA in Neurogenesis and Cell Specification

    Author : Malin Åkerblom; Molekylär neurogenetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; miRNA; microRNA; miR-124; miR-9; miR-125; adult neurogenesis; neural stem cells; cell specification; microglia; lentiviral vectors; olfactory bulb; olfactory bulb interneurons;

    Abstract : Only a few decades ago, it was generally believed that gene expression was controlled in a unidirectional way, i.e. DNA was transcribed into RNA, which simply acted as a messenger molecule used to produce the protein that executed cellular functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic mechanisms behind cell specification in the Drosophila CNS

    Author : Magnus Baumgardt; Stefan Thor; Angela Giangrande; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drosophila melanogaster; nervous system development; cell specification; stem cells; cell proliferation; combinatorial coding; feedforward loop; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The human central nervous system (CNS) contains a daunting number of cells and tremendous cellular diversity. A fundamental challenge of developmental neurobiology is to address the questions of how so many different types of neurons and glia can be generated at the precise time and place, making precisely the right connections.

  5. 5. Molecular specification of expanded forebrain neural stem and progenitor cells

    Author : Malin Parmar; Neurobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; teratology; ontogeny; embryology human ; Development biology; developmental control genes; in vitro expansion; transplantation; precursor cell; stem cells; progenitor cell; human; mouse; Utvecklingsbiologi; teratologi; embryologi människa ;

    Abstract : The molecular specification of neural precursor cells has been suggested to be a progressive process, with a transition from an early requirement for extrinsic signals to intrinsic mechanisms. Thus, the cells in the nervous system acquire distinct fates in response to extrinsic signals, which activate repertoires of transcription factors in a region and cell type specific manner. READ MORE
