Correlation between cephalic circumference at birth and ocular alterations in patients with microcephaly potentially associated with Zika Virus infection.
Last Updated: Aug 05, 2019

The Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arbovirus isolated for the first time in 1947 and transmitted to humans by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. In Brasil, it was first detected in May 2015. Since then, ZIKV has been identified as the etiological agent of acute exanthematous disease in Brasil, ...

Precision Revisited: Targeting Microcephaly Kinases in Brain Tumors.
Last Updated: Aug 19, 2019

Glioblastoma multiforme and medulloblastoma are the most frequent high-grade brain tumors in adults and children, respectively. Standard therapies for these cancers are mainly based on surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, intrinsic or acquired resistance to ...

From microcephaly to megalencephaly: determinants of brain size.
Last Updated: Nov 16, 2019

Expansion of the human brain, and specifically the neocortex, is among the most remarkable evolutionary processes that correlates with cognitive, emotional, and social abilities. Cortical expansion is determined through a tightly orchestrated process of neural stem cell proliferation, ...

Last Updated: Jan 09, 2020

Deciduous teeth eruption is connected to children's growth and development. In Brazil, with the increase in the occurrence of children born with microcephaly associated to exposure to Zika virus, studies about orofacial alterations were necessary.

Gpr63 is a modifier of microcephaly in Ttc21b mouse mutants.
Last Updated: Feb 18, 2020

The primary cilium is a signaling center critical for proper embryonic development. Previous studies have demonstrated that mice lacking Ttc21b have impaired retrograde trafficking within the cilium and multiple organogenesis phenotypes, including microcephaly. Interestingly, the ...
