    hybridization was used to compare Scx in progenitor cells, Pax1 in sclerotome, and MyoD in myotome. Scx expression was restricted to the anterior and posterior borders while MyoD expression was present in the center of the myotome with no overlap of the two markers. When Scx was compared to Pax1 it appeared that they existed in the same region; however, Pax1 was expressed more ventromedial and Scx was closer to the myotome, these markers did not have any overlap either. Additionally, Scx expression occurred

    the chest. 5. Define the terms dermatome and myotome and explain how each relates to SCI. Spinal nerves have motor fibers and sensory fibers. The motor fibers innervate certain muscles, while the sensory fibers innervate certain areas of skin. A skin area innervated by the sensory fibers of a single nerve root is known as a dermatome. A group of muscles primarily innervated by the motor fibers of a single nerve root is known as a myotome. Myotomes are necessary for proper motor functioning; making

  • Symptoms And Treatment Of Tuberculosis

    Intro: Tuberculosis (TB) Spondylitis, also known as Pott’s Disease, is often a result of an extra-spinal infection. Pott’s disease can occur as a combination of arthritis and osteomyelitis and often involves more than 1 vertebrae. The anterior most portion of the vertebrae is commonly affected. The TB infection of one vertebrae may spread to surrounding vertebrae and vertebral discs causing a further secondary infection.

    altered motor or sensory function that do not correspond to a recognized neurologic pattern or syndrome, with an onset related to a major psychological stressor. In this case, the symptoms of right foot and left hand weakness do not correspond to a myotome, and the patient exhibits contradictory examination findings (e.g. diminished foot dorsiflexion on the exam table, but absence of foot drop on ambulation). She recently had a major psychologic stress in being diagnosed with Crohn disease. Conversion

    joints above and below were tested with decrease in ROM detected. ROM at the shoulder was examined with decrease in flexion of the glenohumeral joint and decrease in the range of medial rotation of right shoulder. On carrying out of special tests, Myotomes were positive for triceps weakness and dermatomes were positive for tingling at C6 level on right. Upper limb tension tests (ULTTs) were carried out with ULTT1 and ULTT2a positive due to pins and needle

  • A Study On The Beard Cells Essay

    2128 Words  | 9 Pages

    Rohon Beard cells (RBs) are transient neurons that are displayed in amphibians (Xenopus), zebrafish (Danio rerio), and other teleosts early in embryonic development. These cells were first described by two scientists independently of one another: Rohon (1894) and Beard (1896). RBs develop on the border between the epidermis and the neuroectoderm because they are a component of the peripheral nervous system. Along with their localization, RBs retain a number of morphological attributes that distinguish

    In an individual with quadriplegia due to SCI, injury is usually sustained to one or more of the vertebral structures of the spinal column between the levels of C1 and T1, causing damage to one or more of the first eight spinal nerves. When naming the level of injury, the specific vertebral segment involved will be identified by the first letter in which it is named followed by the last spinal nerve root which remains intact; for example, if an individual has a fracture to a cervical vertebra and
