X-ray videocystometry for high-speed monitoring of urinary tract function in mice

By   /  July 24, 2021  /  Science  /  Comments Off on X-ray videocystometry for high-speed monitoring of urinary tract function in mice

Abstract Lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTd) represents a major health care problem with a high, unmet medical need. Design of additional therapies for LUTd requires precise tools to study bladder storage and voiding (dys)function in animal models. We developed videocystometry in mice, combining intravesical pressure measurements with high-speed fluoroscopy of the urinary tract. Videocystometry substantially […]

Pax5 regulates B cell immunity by promoting PI3K signaling via PTEN down-regulation

By   /  July 24, 2021  /  Science  /  Comments Off on Pax5 regulates B cell immunity by promoting PI3K signaling via PTEN down-regulation

Pax5 regulates mature B cell B cells are a crucial part of adaptive immune responses, so better understanding their development and maturation is crucial. B cell development is controlled by the transcription factor Pax5, but it is not known whether Pax5 regulates B cell maturation. To study how Pax5 affected B cell maturation, Calderón et […]
