Chemical Basis for Alteration of an Intraocular Lens Using a Femtosecond Laser

The chemical basis for the alteration of the refractive properties of an intraocular lens with a femtosecond laser was investigated. Three different microscope setups have been used for the study: Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) microscopy, Raman microscopy and coherent anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) microscopy. Photo-induced hydrolysis of polymeric material in aqueous media produces two hydrophilic …

mTORC1 Promotes Proliferation of Immature Schwann Cells and Myelin Growth of Differentiated Schwann Cells

The myelination of axons is essential for neuronal wiring and normal nervous system functions. In the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells (SCs) form myelin sheaths around axons during nerve development. Such myelination is compromised in a number of diseases. Hence, identification and understanding of the key pathways regulating SC development and myelinogenesis are essential for …

Autocrine Regulation of Stomatal Differentiation Potential by EPF1 and ERECTA-LIKE1 Ligand-receptor Signaling

Development of stomata, valves on the plant epidermis for optimal gas exchange and water control, is fine-tuned by multiple signaling peptides with unique, overlapping, or antagonistic activities. EPIDERMAL PATTERNING FACTOR1 (EPF1) is a founding member of the secreted peptide ligands enforcing stomatal patterning. Yet, its exact role remains unclear. Here, we report that EPF1 and …

High-Resolution 3D Imaging of Whole Organ after Clearing

Zebrafish testis has become a powerful model for reproductive biology of teleostean fishes and other vertebrates and encompasses multiple applications in applied and basic research. Many studies have focused on 2D images, which is time consuming and implies extrapolation of results. Three-dimensional imaging of whole organs recently became an important challenge to better understand their …
