Daple orients cilia to produce directional CSF flow
18 Aug 2017
Researchers at Nagoya University have identified a molecule that enables cell appendages called cilia to beat in a coordinated way to drive the flow of fluid around the brain; this prevents the accumulation of this fluid, which otherwise leads to swelling of the head as found in the condition hydrocephalus.
Mice treated with HLA-G1 showed marked improvement of the skin lesions compared to PBS (saline) treated mice. Control mice with no induced atopic dermatitis is shown as control. (Maeda N., et al., International Immunopharmacology, July 1, 2017)
