Optical Coherence Tomography: Imaging Mouse Retinal Ganglion Cells In Vivo Jolanta Jagodzinska*1, Emmanuelle Sarzi*1, Mélanie Cavalier1, Marie Seveno1, Volker Baecker2, Christian Hamel1,3,4, Marie Péquignot1, Cecile Delettre1 1INSERM U1051, Institut of Neurosciences of Montpellier, 2CNRS UMS3426, BioCampus Montepellier, 3University of Montpellier, 4CHRU Montpellier, Centre of Reference for Genetic Sensory Diseases, CHU Gui de Chauliac Hospital This manuscript describes a protocol for the in vivo imaging of the mouse retina with high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). It focuses on retinal ganglion cells (RGC) in the peripapillary region, with several scanning and quantifying approaches described.

Oct, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21614602 The purpose of the present study was to illustrate the modality of rotation of ventral and dorsal pancreatic buds by three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions in the rat embryos, during the Carnegie stages 13-17.
The Multiplicity of Cellular Infection Changes Depending on the Route of Cell Infection in a Plant Virus Journal of Virology. Sep, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 26178988 The multiplicity of cellular infection (MOI) is the number of virus genomes of a given virus species that infect individual cells. This parameter chiefly impacts the severity of within-host population bottlenecks as well as the intensity of genetic exchange, competition, and complementation among viral genotypes. Only a few formal estimations of the MOI currently are available, and most theoretical reports have considered this parameter as constant within the infected host. Nevertheless, the colonization of a multicellular host is a complex process during which the MOI may dramatically change in different organs and at different stages of the infection. We have used both qualitative and quantitative approaches to analyze the MOI during the colonization of turnip plants by Turnip mosaic virus. Remarkably, different MOIs were observed at two phases of the systemic infection of a leaf. The MOI was very low in primary infections from virus circulating within the vasculature, generally leading to primary foci founded by a single genome. Each lineage then moved from cell to cell at a very high MOI. Despite this elevated MOI during cell-to-cell progression, coinfection of cells by lineages originating in different primary foci is severely limited by the rapid onset of a mechanism inhibiting secondary infection. Thus, our results unveil an intriguing colonization pattern where individual viral genomes initiate distinct lineages within a leaf. Kin genomes then massively coinfect cells, but coinfection by two distinct lineages is strictly limited.
