Micrornas Are Necessary For Bmp-7-Induced Dendritic Growth In Cultured Rat Sympathetic Neurons, Vidya Chandrasekaran Sep 2019

Micrornas Are Necessary For Bmp-7-Induced Dendritic Growth In Cultured Rat Sympathetic Neurons, Vidya Chandrasekaran

Vidya Chandrasekaran

Neuronal connectivity is dependent on size and shape of the dendritic arbor. However, mechanisms controlling dendritic arborization, especially in the peripheral nervous system, are not completely understood. Previous studies have shown that bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are important initiators of dendritic growth in peripheral neurons. In this study, we examined the hypothesis that post-transcriptional regulation mediated by microRNAs (miRNAs) is necessary for BMP-7-induced dendritic growth in these neurons. To examine the role of miRNAs in BMP-7-induced dendritic growth, microarray analyses was used to profile miRNA expression in cultured sympathetic neurons from the superior cervical ganglia of embryonic day 21 rat ...

Human Anatomy And Physiology Preparatory Course: Part 2 Of 4 (Interactive), Carlos Liachovitzky Jan 2016

Human Anatomy And Physiology Preparatory Course: Part 2 Of 4 (Interactive), Carlos Liachovitzky

Open Educational Resources

The overall purpose of these preparatory course set of learning objectives is to help students familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find later in the Human Anatomy and Physiology I course.

These 40+ learning objectives to prepare for Human Anatomy and Physiology can be downloaded and played in a desktop, or laptop (windows exe file).

The entire course has four parts:

Each learning objective is followed by a set of multiple choice question similar to those found later in a Human Anatomy and Physiology course.

Synaptogyrin 3 Binds Amyloid Beta And May Alter Dopamine Transport In Alzheimer’S Disease, William Gierach Jan 2016

Synaptogyrin 3 Binds Amyloid Beta And May Alter Dopamine Transport In Alzheimer’S Disease, William Gierach

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Alzheimer’s Disease effects 35 million elderly individuals globally by causing dementia, memory loss and eventually death. Amyloid Beta (Aß), a neurotropic peptide and a hallmark of AD pathogenesis, disrupts cellular organization and impairs neuronal systems. The dopaminergic system regulates learning, motor function and behavior and malfunctions in early AD. Aß causes dopaminergic transmission to dysfunction by unknown mechanisms. To elucidate these mechanisms, we screened solubilized mouse synaptosomes for proteins that specifically bind Aß 1-42. 107 proteins that bound Aß were identified by mass spectrometry. Human orthologs were further screened in HEK293 cells for Aß binding. Of the thirteen proteins ...
