An improved method, using CO2-independent culture medium and agarose embedding, for live imaging of mouse retinal explants allows tracking of interkinetic nuclear migration within individual retinal cells, and analysis of changes in retinal progenitor cell morphology.
Replication-deficient foamy virus vectors are an efficient means of transferring genes into axolotl limb and tail cells, with infection persisting throughout regeneration and re-amputation allowing tests of gene function in this experimental model.
Transgenic mice expressing a nuclear-localized fluorescent protein driven by responsive elements, taken from the CBF1 transcription factor, allow single-cell resolution of the Notch signaling pathway, with greater sensitivity and resolution than previous reporter lines.

News from the web
BMC Developmental Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the development, growth, differentiation and regeneration of multicellular organisms, including molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole organism research.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
