    This experiment mainly explores the effects of intermittent hydrostatic pressure (IHP) on chondrogenic differentiation of cartilage progenitor cells cultivated in alginate beads and finds the superiority of this newly rising research object among a number of source cells candidates with IHP.

    In this review article, we discuss genetic oscillators in the presence of developmental processes such as cell division, cell movement and cell differentiation. We first introduce the gene regulatory network for generating a rhythm of gene expression. We then discuss how developmental processes influence genetic oscillators.

    Timing mechanisms in neuronal pathfinding, synaptic reorganization, and neuronal regeneration (pages 88–93)

    Evguenia Ivakhnitskaia, Kana Hamada and Chieh Chang

    Article first published online: 9 JAN 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/dgd.12259

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    We summarize recent findings on the role of lin-4 as a timing regulator controlling transition of sequential events in neuronal pathfinding and synaptic remodeling, and the role of let-7 as a timing regulator that limits the regeneration potential of post-differentiated AVM neurons as they age.
