Development Essay 1 Resources

links to all the research papers

(you may need your athens account details to access them)

Talk 1

Talk 2
Setting up the initial asymmetries in the embryo.

  1. Early patterning of the C. elegans embryo.

  2. Axis determination in _C. elegans: initiating and transducing polarity.

  3. Heads or tails: Cell polarity and axis formation in the early _Caenorhabditis elegans embryo.

  4. Polarization of the C. elegans zygote proceeds via distinct establishment and maintainance phases. (for pictures of localisation)

Talk 3
Skn-1 and EMS development.

  1. Skn-1 a maternally expressed gene required to specify the fate of ventral blastomeres in the early _C. elegans embryos.

  2. Formation of a monomeric DNA binding domain by Skn-1 bZIP and homeodomain elements.

  3. The maternal gene skn-1 encodes a protein that is distributed unequally in early _C. elegans embryos.

Talk 4
Germline development pie-1 and mex-1 genes; transcriptional silencing.

  1. The pie-1 and mex-1 genes and maternal control of blastomere identity in early _C. elegans embryos.

  2. The PIE-1 protein and germline specification in C. elegans embryos.

  3. Repression of gene expression in the embryonic germ lineage of C. elegans.

  4. The C. elegans MEX-1 protein is present in germline blastomeres and is a P granule component. (only need abstract)

  5. Launching the germline in Caenorhabditis elegans: regulation of gene expression in early germ cells.

  6. PIE-1 is a bifunctional protein that regilates maternal and zygotic gene expression in the embryonic germ line of Caenorhabditis elegans.

  7. Germ plasm: protein degradation in the soma.

Talk 5
The C. elegans maternal Notch system.

  1. The maternal genes apx-1 and glp-1 and establishement of dorsal-ventral polarity in the early _C. elegans embryo.

  2. Translational control of maternal glp-1 mRNA establishes asymmetry in the _C. elegans embryo.

  3. Translational control of maternal glp-1 mRNA by POS-1 and its interacting protein SPN-4 in Caenorhabditis elegans.

  4. An inductive interaction in 4-cell stage embryos involves APX-1 expression in the signalling cell

  5. Time dependant responses to glp-1 mediated inductions in early C. elegans embryos.


It's taken me just over 2 (goddamn) hours to find these links.

They make me hurt all over.

I think my eyes may be bleeding
I may never smile again…

oooh a rabbit!!

  1. cool for putting em on the blog.
    did you go through warwick library, e-resources then journals. just use your warwick library pin and you can access all of the journals that warwick is subscribed to in a nice quick search engine.

    p.s. sunflowers
    sukh :)

  2. I look at that and it makes me so happy that I don't do your degree. I think I might have to have a cup of tea in celebration. It is quite a good rabbit, I'm thinking you would need quite a large pancake though?

  3. Yeah, I used the Scopus search engine which, incidentally, is rather good but still took me forever.

    Yes, i've just had mine but a second tea-break is still pretty tempting.
    Look! bunny bunny bunny!

    However, i thought lettuce was also hallucinogenic for rabbits, so this is also possibly the largest junkie bunny in the world!

    p.s. yes i've not forgotten :)

  4. wow I managed to get a picture in a comment box, I am so proud of me.

    yes, yes I am Mia. Have a cup of tea and a biscuit.

    Why indeed i will. thankyou!

    You're welcome :D

  5. Were-bunny.

  6. What's the punchline?

    24 Oct 2005, 19:41

  7. It does look a bit Wallace-like doesn't it?

  8. I think a were-bunny is the least of my worries right now :s

  9. flow

    stop right now.

    i studied thosebrain development things, and i was more stable than you to start with.
    now i live upside down and drive a magic taxi and can't read a tax invoice.
    learn how to make good coffee and get a real job.

  10. That's what your mum said.
