RGD’s new gene report pages are an even faster way of learning valuable information on genes, QTLs, markers, and strains. This informative video will show you each area of the report page, as well as how to view a gene and its annotations.
Autophagy is a cellular degradation pathway essential for neuronal survival, but little is known about the dynamics of autophagic organelles in neurons. Maday et al. reveal that autophagosomes form and engulf cargo at the distal tips of neurites and then mature into degradative autolysosomes as they move toward the cell body. This biosights episode presents the paper by Maday et al. from the February 20, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with authors Sandra...

The visceral endoderm (VE) is a simple epithelium that forms the outer layer of the egg-cylinder stage mouse embryo. The anterior visceral endoderm (AVE), a specialised subset of VE cells, is responsible for specifying anterior pattern. AVE cells show a stereotypic migratory behaviour within the VE, which is responsible for correctly orientating the anterior-posterior axis. The epithelial...
Are you looking for a more intuitive way to visualize pathway information? RGD's newest video tutorial about the Physiological Pathway diagrams will help you navigate these interactive diagrams for use as either a research or study tool.
In this video, we will:
• Locate the Physiological Pathway Diagrams on RGD’s website
• Walk through a particular pathway diagram
• View relationships between levels of organization
• Learn every one of the controls attached to the diagrams
