Conserved patterns of axogenesis in the panarthropod brain
Arthropod Structure & Development 44(2):101 (2015)
Neuropils in the cerebral midline of Panarthropoda exhibit a wide spectrum of neuroarchitectures – from rudimentary to highly elaborated – and which at first sight defy a unifying neuroarchitectural principle. Developmental approaches have shown that in model arthropods such as insects...

Postembryonic development of astrocyte-like glia of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Cell and Tissue Research 351(3):361 (2013)
Central complex modules in the postembryonic brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria are enveloped by Repo-positive/glutamine-synthetase-positive astrocyte-like glia. Such cells constitute Rind-Neuropil Interface glia. We have investigated the postembryonic development of these glia and t...
Social determinants of health associated with cervical cancer screening among women living in developing countries: a scoping review.
Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics 286(6):1487 (2012)
Thousands of women living in many middle and low-income countries are unnecessarily dying from cervical cancer, partly due to limited screening coverage.
To identify social determinants of health (SDH) associated with cervical screening for women living in middle and low-income countries, to inf...
Astrocyte-like glia associated with the embryonic development of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Development Genes and Evolution 221(3):141 (2011)
In this study we employed the expression of the astrocyte-specific enzyme glutamine synthetase, in addition to the glia-specific marker Repo, to characterize glia cell types associated with the embryonic development of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. Double labeling...
Embryonic development of the insect central complex: insights from lineages in the grasshopper and Drosophila.
Arthropod Structure & Development 40(4):334 (2011)
The neurons of the insect brain derive from neuroblasts which delaminate from the neuroectoderm at stereotypic locations during early embryogenesis. In both grasshopper and Drosophila, each developing neuroblast acquires an intrinsic capacity for neuronal proliferation in a cell autonomous manne...
Embryonic development of the insect central complex: Insights from lineages in the grasshopper andDrosophila
Arthropod Structure & Development 40(4):334 (2011)
The neurons of the insect brain derive from neuroblasts which delaminate from the neuroectoderm at stereotypic locations during early embryogenesis. In both grasshopper and
Drosophila, each developing neuroblast acquires an intrinsic capacity for neuronal proliferation in a cell auto...
Developmental expression of neuromodulators in the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Journal of Morphology 271(12):1509 (2010)
The central complex is a major integrative region within the insect brain with demonstrated roles in spatial orientation, the regulation of locomotor behavior, and sound production. In the hemimetabolous grasshopper, the central complex comprises the protocerebral bridge, central body (CB), elli...
Proliferative cell types in embryonic lineages of the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Cell and Tissue Research 341(2):259 (2010)
The central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria develops to completion during embryogenesis. A major cellular contribution to the central complex is from the w, x, y, z lineages of the pars intercerebralis, each of which comprises over 100 cells, making them by far the largest in th...
Cell death shapes embryonic lineages of the central complex in the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Journal of Morphology 271(8):949 (2010)
We have investigated cell death in identified lineages of the central complex in the embryonic brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. Progeny from these lineages lie in the pars intercerebralis and direct projections to the protocerebral bridge and then the central body via the w, x, y,...
Multigeneration cross contamination of mail with Bacillus species spores by tumbling.
Applied and Environmental Microbiology 76(14):4797 (2010)
In 2001, envelopes loaded with Bacillus anthracis spores were mailed to Senators Daschle and Leahy as well as to the New York Post and NBC News buildings. Additional letters may have been mailed to other news agencies because there was confirmed anthrax infection of employees at these locations....
Multipotent neuroblasts generate a biochemical neuroarchitecture in the central complex of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria.
Cell and Tissue Research 340(1):13 (2010)
We have examined the developmental expression of the neuromodulators locustatachykinin, leucokinin-1, allatostatin and serotonin in a subset of lineages (Y, Z) of the central complex in the brain of the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria. First, we show that all these neuromodulators are expresse...
Successful treatment of metastatic hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma with thalidomide: a case report.
Journal of Medical Case Reports 4:413 (2010)
Hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare malignancy arising from the vascular endothelial cells within the liver. Historically, the disease is characterized as being poorly responsive to both chemotherapy and radiotherapy, with liver resection or transplantation the treatment of choice...
