A System for Culturing Iris Pigment Epithelial Cells to Study Lens Regeneration in Newt Rital B. Bhavsar*1, Kenta Nakamura*1, Panagiotis A. Tsonis1,2 1Department of Biology, University of Dayton, 2Center for Tissue Regeneration and Engineering, University of Dayton In newt, the lens regenerates always from the dorsal iris by transdifferentiation of the iris pigmented epithelial cells (IPEs). Here we describe a procedure to culture dorsal and ventral newt IPE cells and their implantation to the newt eye. The implanted cells are then studied by tissue sectioning and immunohistochemistry.

The Other Lives of Ribosomal Proteins Human Genomics. Jun, 2010 | Pubmed ID: 20650820 Despite the fact that ribosomal proteins are the constituents of an organelle that is present in every cell, they show a surprising level of regulation, and several of them have also been shown to have other extra-ribosomal functions, such in replication, transcription, splicing or even ageing. This review provides a comprehensive summary of these important aspects.
