Genetic analysis of microRNA function in Arabidopsis thaliana development
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are 21-24-nucleotide RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression. Plant miRNAs play important roles in gene regulation by directing cleavage of target mRNAs. The high degree of complementarity between ...
A PI3-kinase mediated negative feedback regulates neuronal excitability at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction
Use-dependent downregulation of neuronal activity (negative feedback) can act as a homeostatic mechanism to maintain neuronal activity at a particular specified value. Disruption of this negative feedback might lead to ...
Investigation of the role of Wee2 in the zebrafish midblastula transition
Zebrafish embryonic development begins with a series of rapid and synchronous cell divisions that quickly partition the zygote into a set of small blastomeres. The minimal cell division cycle during this period consists ...
