...Mélanie A. Eckersley-Maslin The concept of cellular plasticity is particularly apt in early embryonic development, where there is a tug-of-war between the stability and flexibility of cell identity. This balance is controlled in part through epigenetic mechanisms. Epigenetic plasticity dictates how...

..., this normally tight control is often disrupted, leading to a wide scale hyper-plasticity of the epigenome and allowing stochastic gene activation and silencing, cell state transition, and potentiation of the effects of genetic lesions. Many of these epigenetic disruptions will confer a proliferative advantage...

... as an example of plasticity of intrinsic progenitors and even differentiated cells. Of relevance, examples of plasticity and fate change characterize pathologies such as oesophageal metaplasia, whose possible cell origin is still debated, but has important implications as a pre-neoplastic event. Although much...

The adaptive plastic properties of neurons, synapses and circuits have been classically studied by measurement of electrophysiological properties, ionic conductances and excitability. Over the last 15 years, the field...

However, increasing evidence suggests that ECs retain various degrees of plasticity, and have the ability to express characteristics of alternative cell lineages. Therapeutic control of endothelial plasticity will allow...

.... This is achieved via the multiple stages of the endosomal system. AMPARs constitutively cycle through early endosomes and recycling endosomes to maintain synaptic receptor numbers. However, on induction of synaptic plasticity, subtle alterations are made to this cycle by the action of specific AMPAR-interacting...

...J.E.R. Wilkerson; P.M. MacFarlane; M.S. Hoffman; G.S. Mitchell Plasticity is an important property of the respiratory control system. One of the best-studied models of respiratory plasticity is pLTF (phrenic long-term facilitation). pLTF is a progressive increase in phrenic motor output lasting...
