In vivo 2-color multiphoton imaging of genetic reporter fibroblasts in the skin

AoS. In vivo 2-color multiphoton imaging of genetic reporter fibroblasts in the skin.

Fibroblasts are cells that synthesize collagen and support the maintenance of connective tissue in the skin, tendons, and joints. They maintain a critical role in the immune system’s response to tissue injury by promoting wound healing at

Can tree rings be used as pollution bioindicator archives to reconstruct past environments?

Heavy metal contents in wound and bark

Trace heavy metal (HM) pollution over time and space is becoming a growing global problem, as many studies have confirmed that human activities have dramatically increased natural concentrations of metal pollutants in the last century. HM are

It’s a great pleasure and an honor inviting you for the “3rd International Conference on Embryology and Human Genetics” to be held on October 17th – 18th, 2018 at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Embryology 2018 aims to

Characteristics of children with familial and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a disease characterized by weakening of the heart muscle that becomes dilated and unable to pump blood efficiently. DCM is diagnosed in 0.57 of 100,000 children per year in North America and has

Genetic and non-genetic animal models for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a heterogeneous group of neurobehavioral problems with genetic and environmental origins. The major neurobehavioral changes are manifested by persistent deficits in social and communication interaction, deficits in developing, understanding and maintaining relationships,

Genetic differences in elite rugby players and the general population

We have known for many years that genetic variation is important in understanding any physiological trait and contributes substantially to the way people develop. Height for example is estimated as being ~80% determined by genetic variation with

The potential of LINGO-1 as a therapeutic target for essential tremor

Essential tremor (ET) is probably the most common movement disorder. Because the etiology of ET is unknown, treatment of ET is symptomatic and is geared towards reducing the patient’s embarrassment and disability. The first line treatment is

A novel reovirus mutant: toward the next generation of viruses for cancer treatment?

In the last decade or so, it has been realized that viruses are not only foes to fight, but possible therapeutics against diseases such as cancer. Most of these so-called oncolytic viruses are engineered to acquire desirable
