In addition, our in vivo study confirmed that knockdown of N-cad by IUE perturbed the migration and maturation of mouse NPCs, which is in accordance with previous reports indicating that N-cad is needed to orient the migration of multipolar cells toward the cortical plate and that the potential mechanism is regulated by Jossin et al [35].
Both intermediate and chronic CYP treatment increased the number and size of bipolar ICs parallel to muscle fibers (Figures 1(b), 2(b), 2(c), 2(h), and 3(b)) and those of the multipolar cells lying in between the muscle bundles (Figures 1(b), 2(h), and 3(b)).
Short arrows show double-labeled multipolar cells present in between muscle fibers and in the lamina propria.
Short arrows show large double- labeled multipolar cells present in between muscle fibers and in the lamina propria.
The primitive DPCs usually appearing as spindle-shaped cells changed to flat multipolar cells with elongated shapes (Fig.
In 20-day-old larvae, there were 6-22 serotonergic cells ([bar.X] = 13; SE = 3.2, n = 10) in the apical organ; these were mostly bipolar, with a few multipolar cells present (Fig.
Multipolar cells also appear to lack Na-channel-based excitability.
Again, Tau-IR was restricted to MNN neurons, whereas FMRF-IR was localized to a separate population of smaller, multipolar cells [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2A OMITTED].
