The conferences have ended. Please email us for more information or to request for demos.

ZEISS invites you to workshops, demos and talks organized in conjunction with 2 big life sciences research events in Singapore – the Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) International Conference 2017 and the 18th International Congress of Developmental Biology 2017. Through them, we hope to share with you:

  • The latest advancements in technology
  • How these can benefit you and your research
  • Tips and tricks to increase efficiency and productivity

To learn more, we encourage that you attend and register for workshops early as seats are limited.

All workshop participants and booth visitors will receive an exclusive A1 poster on "Clearing Methods in Microscopy".

LSFM2017 - Session: Live Imaging and Development (S6)

"A Left-right Differential Cell Migration Drives Heart Looping in Vertebrates"

Dr. Oscar Ocaña, Instituto de Neurociencias, Spain

A Left-right Differential Cell Migration Drives Heart Looping in Vertebrates

The establishment of a left-right asymmetric pathway is a central event during embryo development for proper positioning, morphogenesis and function of internal organs. Activation of Nodal-Pitx2 axis specifically within the left lateral plate mesoderm confers left identity during organ positioning and differentiation.

The epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) inducer Snail represses Pitx2 on the right. Whether in addition to the repression of the left cascade an informative right-derived information operates in the embryo has remained elusive. Here we show that in vertebrates, BMP signaling activates EMT inducers preferentially on the right that promote differential L/R cell movements and heart bending through an actomyosin-dependent mechanism. Downregulation of EMT prevents heart looping leading to mesocardia, one of the most severe congenital heart defects.

This indicates that a right-handed informative cascade also exists in vertebrates and therefore, that two parallel left and right pathways, respectively driven by Nodal and BMP integrate left and right information to govern the morphogenesis and positioning of the heart. Taking the advantage of in vivo light sheet microscopy (ZEISS), we would like to analyze in detail the EMT process that drives heart looping in vertebrates.

ZEISS Axio Zoom.V16
Your Fluorescence Stereo Zoom Microscope for Large Fields

Axio Zoom.V16 combines a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture of NA 0.25, moving to the forefront of all known stereo and zoom microscopes. It achieves a very high aperture in the medium zoom range already: You get superior brightness in large object fields. With Axio Zoom.V16, the fluorescence zoom microscope for large samples you view complete model organisms in fluorescence contrast.

ZEISS ApoTome.2
Optical Sectioning Using Structured Illumination

Create optical sections of your fluorescent samples – free of scattered light. With structured illumination, you know that only the focal plane appears in your image: ApoTome.2 recognizes the magnification and moves the appropriate grid into the beampath. The system then calculates your optical section from three images with different grid positions without time lag. It’s a totally reliable way to prevent scattered out-of-focus light, even in your thicker specimens. Operate your system just as easy as always. You get images with high contrast in the best possible resolution – simply brilliant optical sections.
