Differentiation of neuronal processes into subtypes
Differentiation of neuronal processes into subtypes namely, axons and dendrites remain to be a highly intriguing but critical mechanism for survival during neuronal development.
Interestingly, though different approaches have been adopted to intercept the molecular mechanism behind, a clear model on this critical transition during development remains unclear. In my project, I try to address this interesting question by adopting a multidisciplinary approach combining molecular biology and single molecule based superresolution microscopy to study the role of lipid metabolism in neuronal differentiation using mouse hippocampal neurons as the model system.
