The San Diego Fire Department (SDFD) receives a large amount of criticism due to inefficient response times. This is problematic since there is currently a need for faster response times. Studies have been conducted to meet the demand for efficient response times. However, because San Diego is growing in population and becoming an environmental fire hazard, the demand for efficient emergency response time will be even greater in the future.

biosights: February 17, 2014 - Shroom takes embryos to new dimensions

submitted by: JCB
During development, the planar polarized distribution of Rho kinase and Myosin II helps Drosophila germ-band cells intercalate so that the embryo extends along its anterior-posterior axis. Simoes et al. reveal how Rho GTPase and the actin-binding protein Shroom combine to regulate the localization of Rho kinase and actomyosin contractility during axis elongation. This biosights episode presents the paper by Simoes et al. from the February 17, 2014, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and...
