  1. From neuron to behavior: Sensory-motor coordination of zebrafish turning behavior

    Keiko Umeda and Wataru Shoji

    In zebrafish escape turning behavior, supra-spinal and intra-spinal circuits are differently activated depending on input quantity from mechanosensory neurons. The sensory neurons also recognize position information of stimulus, to control the escape pathway by regulating the strength of body curvature in the first turning movement.

    Nile tilapia ES-like cell line (TES1) has been successfully developed under feeder-free culture condition, which retains stable growth for over 200 days with more than 59 passages. TES1 cells have pluripotency and differentiation potential in vitro and in vivo.

    IGF1 promotes primary osteoblast differentiation and Col1a2 expression. IGF1 induces LARP6 expression. LARP6 regulates Col1a2 expression and primary osteoblast differentiation.

  5. Regulation of adipose-tissue-derived stromal cell orientation and motility in 2D- and 3D-cultures by direct-current electrical field (pages 70–82)

    Cell alignment plays a critical role in a variety of cell behavior, including cytoskeleton reorganization, membrane-protein relocation, nuclear gene expression, and extracellular matrix remodeling. Direct current electric field (EF) in vitro can direct many cell types to align vertically to EF vector direction. In this work, we investigated the EF effect on adipose-tissue-derived stromal cell orientation and motility in 2D- and 3D-cultures.
