Differential RNA packaging into small extracellular vesicles by neurons and astrocytes

0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Small extracellular vesicles (sEVs) mediate intercellular communication by carrying RNA, proteins, and lipids between cells. These cargo molecules mirror the physiological state of their donor cells, but they are selectively loaded into sEVs. sEVs can cross the blood-brain barrier, and their contents may be influenced by neurological disorders, making them potential biomarkers. Identifying cell-specific signatures could be an important first step in the biomarker discovery process. Recently researchers examined sEVs isolated from cultures of primary mouse cortical neurons and astrocytes. They identified distinct total RNA and miRNA profiles between the two cell types. While astrocytes had a greater number of detected miRNAs than neurons, neurons expressed more sEV-associated miRNAs than astrocytes. They also identified short miRNA sequence motifs that were differentially loaded to or excluded from sEVs..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

The Importance of Early Childhood Development
Rating
0.0 stars

Early Childhood Development (ECD) spans from the moment of conception until the beginning of primary school, and includes physical well-being, and cognitive, linguistic, and socio-emotional development. Investing in ECD leads to happier children, more equal societies, and prevents higher costs further down the road.

Nerves allow electrical impulses to propagate along their elongated cell extensions and facilitate the transfer of information throughout the body. Neural tissue is found within the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the composition and constituent parts of neurones and their surrounding cells differ only slightly.

Wnt ligands rescue neurite changes induced by porcupine inhibition

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Wnt signaling plays key roles in many processes, including cell polarity, proliferation, differentiation, and migration. The pathway is centrally involved in neurite and synapse development and maintenance. Wnt activity can be inhibited by Porcupine, an acylase that modifies Wnt ligands. A new study sought to understand how Wnt ligands affect neurite development. Using Wnt-C59, a Porcupine inhibitor, researchers blocked the secretion of endogenous Wnts in rat embryonic hippocampal neurons. They found that inhibiting Porcupine changed the morphology of the dendritic arbors and neurites of hippocampal neurons, while axonal polarity was not affected. β-catenin and Wnt3 levels decreased with Porcupine inhibition, while GSK-3β increased. Adding exogenous Wnt3a, 5a, and 7a ligands rescued the changes in neuronal morphology. Wnt3a restored neurite length to near the control, while Wnt7a increased the neurite length beyond that of the control..."
