Therefore, the objective of this study was to document the development of brain vesicles stage throughout the early prenatal life in dromedary camel.
The early embryonic stages of camel development at 9 mm CVRL stage revealed that the cephalic part of the neural tube is markedly expanded and give rise to the main primary brain vesicles. These divisions of the brain can be distinguished through the formation of accommodated flexures and surface folding in its roof and floor.
From the results of the present work, we found many teratogenic effects at the early stages of development resulted from the oral administration of Khat during rat pregnancy including opened neural groove and visceral pouches, discontinuity in the neural tube, undifferentiated brain vesicles and incomplete closure of the brain flexure.
MG-GTD was then incubated with purified squid brain vesicles to displace native myosin-V, and therefore to block vesicle transport.
The bacterially expressed recombinant globular tail domain of myosin-V was incubated with purified squid brain vesicles to replace native myosin-V.
