It is mostly a monthly event, taking place at The Cittie of Yorke pub in London, and everyone is welcome!   As you may know, The Company of Biologists[…]

Here are the research highlights from the current issue of Development: Fishing out adult neural stem cells Adult neural stem cells (NSCs) hold great potential for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and nervous system injuries. To date, adult neurogenesis has been mainly studied in rodents but, on p. 1459, Laure Bally-Cuif and co-workers use GFP-encoding[…]

Non-muscle myosin II translates cilia polarity In the brain, cilia on the multiciliated ependymal cells that line the brain ventricles circulate cerebrospinal fluid over the brain surface. To generate this directional fluid flow, the ependymal cell cilia and their basal bodies must be orientated in one direction. This ‘rotational’ polarity is regulated by the planar[…]
