New DNA-nanotechnology Enhances DNA and RNA Analysis

In this image, the use of SABER-FISH enabled the visualization of the retina's organization into distinct layers with the light-sensing photoreceptor layer positioned at the top of the image. Each layer contains a diversity of specialized neuronal cells that can be identified by the presence of unique RNA molecules detected by the method.

On the Origin of Astrocytes

News

During fetal brain development, both neurons and astrocytes are generated from neural stem cells. One of the characteristics of this developmental process is that neural stem cells first generate neurons and, after that, start generating astrocytes. The "switch" to change the fate of neural stem cells from neurons to astrocytes has remained largely unidentified. Until now.
