Examination of internal 'wiring' of yeast, worm, and fly reveals conserved circuits

...fly that is involved in the guidance of nerve cell axons to their synaptic targets, or junctions, with other nerve cells. The process, considered an initial step in the development of the central nervous system, would not be needed by lower organisms, such as yeast, which don't have nerves. Ideker predict...

Liposome finding implies electrical effect on cell development

...ess involved in the development of structures like axons and dendrites in nerve cells. Hayes will present the results of the experiments at a 2 p.m. March 15 session entitled "Colloids in Complex Fluids" at the American Chemical Society meeting in San Diego. In the experiments, the researchers placed lip...

New component of the 'brakes' on nerve regeneration found

...hese molecules prevent the growth of the cablelike axons of injured neurons. Myelin is the fatty sheath that encases neurons and acts as an insulator and aid to the transmission of nerve impulses. Researchers knew that CNS neurons had receptors on their surface that accepted the inhibitory molecules--like...

Molecular messengers perform a crucial role in the ability of injured nerve cells to heal themselves

...he peripheral nervous system can regrow when their axons are damaged. But how does the damaged axon inform the cell body that it must start producing vital proteins for the healing? That's precisely where the molecular messengers, proteins called Erk-1 and Erk-2, enter the picture. When the axon is injured...

"Those findings suggested that GnRH neurons were sending signals to other neurons, but the neurons that received the signals were unknown. Even more importantly for us, though certain bra...

RNA splicing occurs in nerve-cell dendrites
