  • Gene expression during Xenopus embryogenesis measured at single-cell resolution

    Briggs et al. performed single-cell RNA sequencing at 10 embryonic stages 5 to 22 hours post fertilization. Gene activity data read from the mRNA of 137,000 cells show that while the frog embryo appears to be in an undifferentiated state, cells begin to take on their eventual identities. Their findings are published in Science.

  • Quantitative Proteomics After Spinal Cord Injury

    Lee-Liu et al. published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics their study measuring the proteomic response in X. laevis after spinal cord injury (SCI).

    SCI was induced at regerative and non-regenerative stages. They quantified a total of 6,384 proteins, with 172 showing significant differential expression in the regenerative stage and 240 in the nonregenerative stage, with an overlap of only 14 proteins.

  • Morpholino Side Effects

    Gentsch et al. published in Developmental Cell highlight:

    Brachyury KO and KD in frog equally affect phenotype-causing downstream genes.
    Other transcriptional anomalies are unique to morpholino-based KDs and controls.
    Morpholinos can trigger an innate immune response and off-target mis-splicing.
    Optimization of KD conditions mitigates but does not eliminate these side effects.

  • Tissue stiffening coordinates morphogenesis by triggering collective cell migration in vivo

    Neural crest cells sense the stiffening in the extracellular matrix of the underlying mesoderm through integrin signalling, and undergo an epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition before starting their collective migration. Barriga et al published in Nature.
