Descrição geral

Methyl cellulose is a tough, non-toxic material. It is odorless and tasteless. Hence, methyl cellulose is widely used as an adhesive in the food packaging industry. In water-soluble adhesives, it is utilized as a thickening agent. Methyl cellulose is also used as a viscosity control agent. In the cosmetic industry, it is used as an emulsifier, binder and stabilizer.


Methyl cellulose has been used:
  • as a component of an embryo medium to culture zebrafish embryos for motility assays
  • to mount haploid/tetraploid zebrafish embryos on slides for live imaging
  • to enhance the viscosity of artificial seawater to study the flagellar waves of Ciona spermatozoa

The first meiotic division reduces genome ploidy. This requires pairing of homologous chromosomes into bivalents that can be bi-oriented within the spindle during prometaphase I. Thereafter, pairing is abolished during late metaphase I, and univalents are segregated apart onto opposite...

Gene dosage is a key defining factor to understand cancer pathogenesis and progression, which requires the development of experimental models that aid better deconstruction of the disease. Here, we model an aggressive form of prostate cancer and show the unconventional...

The oncogenic phenotype is complex, resulting from the accumulation of multiple somatic mutations that lead to the deregulation of growth regulatory and cell fate controlling activities and pathways. The ability to dissect this complexity, so as to reveal discrete aspects...
