    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    I selected alternate primers for getting longer fragments and improving the quality of Novocrania in situs.

    Nano ptc2, wnt1, smo1, smo2, fgf8, Mmem wnt4

    2015-01-20 11.02.32

    wnt1 did not work again, bad ptc2 again, smo1 and smo2 weakly worked, fgf8 worked, Mmem wnt4 not… Re-run Nano ptc2 with different primers:

    2015-01-20 17.51.33

    Combination of primers 3F and 2R (395 bp fragment) was the only one that worked. Transformed:

    2015-01-23 17.16.01

    T7
    Na wnt5 BV352
    Na wnt5 BV353
    Na smo2 BV354
    Na fgf8 BV355
    Na fgf8 BV356
    Na ptc2 BV357

    Membranipora Endo-IWR-1 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Trying the Endo-IWR-1 to inhibith the Wnt Pathway. Setting 2 plates with 10, 20, and 40 µM.

    For 24h

    DMSO 10 µM
    20 µM 20 µM

    For 48h

    DMSO 10 µM
     40 µM 40 µM

    I miss calculated the well and put 20 µM on the last well of the first plate. So I set 40 µM for the third and fourth wells of the second plate.

    21/09/14

    I checked the embryos and it is hard to see if there is any phenotype. I’m letting it go another day to fix.

    22/09/14

    Fixed at 48h.

    Membranipora U0126 inhibitor time windows 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    I set the U0126 inhibitor 10 µM with Membranipora at 15 °C. I am washing every 2 hours after 1h30 hours after activation as shown below (2x, for 24h and 48h fixation).

    • Activated: 1100
    • Inhibited: 1230
    • 1st wash: 1430
    • 2nd wash: 1630
    • 3rd wash: 1830
    DMSO 3.5 hpa
    5.5 hpa 7.5 hpa

     20/09/14

    Fixed 24h.

    21/09/14

    Fix 48h.

    Membranipora 4D U0126 10 µM 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Started a recording BCV_Mm_2014_09_18 (old Mmem1_18_09_2014) with Membranipora in 10 µM U0126 MEK inhibitor at 15°C. Embryo is looking quite good and stable.

    19/09/14

    Embryo is still lokking good and healthy (?). Letting it on… Stopped and saved the embryo. It moved out of the field of view around 1700.

    Membranipora Wnt inhibitors 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Second round of testing inhibitors and activators of the Wnt pathway in Membranipora. Firt one was last year and they all showed a disrupted phenotype. I am repeating some treatments. Started with 2h post activation. 15 °C.

    Azakanpaullone (x2)

    DMSO 1 µM Azakanpaullone
    2.5 µM Azakanpaullone 5 µM Azakanpaullone

    IWR-1

    DMSO 10 µM IWR
    20 µM IWR 40 µM IWR

    PNU74654

    DMSO 1 µM PNU
    10 µM PNU 25 µM PNU

     18/09/14

    Fixed one plate of Azakanpaullone at 24h. Leaving the others to be fixed at 48h.

    Azak: seems to give a concentration dependent phenotype, but it is quite hard to identify what is wrong.

    IWR & PNU: Although higher concentrations seem to have disturbed the development somehow, it is not clear what is wrong. Maybe there is nothing wrong. I’m leaving them for 48h, maybe a phenotype becomes clearer.

    19/09/14

    Azak: 1 µM has a mild phenotype with a reduced early larva. 2.5 µM shows ciliated swimming balls or some partly differentiated reduced larvae. I am not sure if it is a ventralized phenotype, but it seems that the apical organ is missing. 5 µM balls of cells, not swimming, maybe already dead.

    IWR & PNU: Not sure if there is any phenotype…

    Fixed all for 1 hour at room temperature.

    Membranipora temporary MEK inhibitor 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Trying to understand better the effect of U0126 on Membranipora development I am starting a treatment with long pulses of the inhibitor first. Inhibitor will be washed every 8h.

    DMSO control 10 µM U0126
    10 µM U0126 washed after 9.5h 10 µM U0126 washed after 19h

     18/09/14

    Interestingly, constant concentration shows reduced phenotype as usual, but the sample that was washed after 9h shows a higher number of relatively control like embryos. This might indicate that the effect of the MAPK inhibitor is either reversible, or, most probably, or unrelated to the observed phenotype which might be only a toxic general effect of the drug.

    Fixed one plate at 24h. The other for 48h.

    19/09/14

    Same as previous sample. 9.5 hpa showed a higher proportion of normal larva then the 19hpa or the constant treatment. Fixwed with 4 % FA at RT for 1h.

    Membranipora 4D U0126 10 µM 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /home/customer/www/phd.organelas.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Started a recording BCV_Mm_2014_09_17 (old Mmem1_17_09_2014) with Membranipora in 10 µM U0126 MEK inhibitor at 15°C. Embryo is looking quite good and stable.

    19/09/14

    Well, all the embryos were dead. Cells exploded and all. I think this was due to the high temperature of the room which made the slide temperature not be 15 °C as the ring should be, but more, killing the embryos.
