Study coins New Chemogenetic Actuator for Rapid Control of Neural activity

In neuroscience, chemogenetics is a fairly new area. The field investigates the use of selective ligands and synthetically derived receptors for temporary activation or deactivation of specific brain areas. Also known as Designer Receptors Exclusively Activated by Designer Drugs (DREADDS) – these receptors now find wide use in neuroscience and biology to modify neural activity and behavior temporarily.

Meanwhile, clozapine-N-oxide (CNO) is the most commonly used chemogenetic actuator so far used in DREADD implementation. While the actuator has served to be sometimes valuable in neuroscience studies, it has a number of drawbacks and limitations. This includes slow action and possible side-effects associated with its back-metabolism into clozapine. Clozapine is another actuator that has been extensive off-target effects.

For this, researchers at University of North Carolina and the National Institute of Radiological Sciences have recently introduced a new chemogenetic actuator – deschloroclozapine. The new chemogenetic actuator acts rapidly, and possesses high-affinity, brain penetrable, is selective, and metabolically stable.

The new actuator is presented in a paper published in Nature Neuroscience. This new actuator could eventually be used to induce reversible changes rapidly in the working memory and behavior of animals and even humans.

“The researchers investigated the selectivity and rapidness of deschloroclozapine action,” said one of the researchers who led the study. The team first administered radiolabelled DCZ to animals to express DREADDS locally within the brain, and further examined them with positron emission tomography.

The new chemogenetic actuator tested on both mice and monkeys. Thereafter, the neural activity of both animals recorded after DCZ injections employing two techniques: electrophysiology for monkeys and two-photon calcium imaging for mice.

The administered DCZ rapidly entered into the brain of the animals, selectively binding and occupying DREADDs.

Favorable government regulations and availability of subsidies for development of renewable energy has aroused the interest of public and private agencies to participate in these initiatives. Solar energy, wind energy, and hydro energy are some renewable energy initiatives that enjoy government benefits for their development.

The vast applications of solar energy with technological advances in end-use industries augurs well for the growth of solar battery market. Space research, telecom, automobile, and power sector are some end users of solar energy that indirectly stoke demand for solar batteries.

Amidst COVID-19, Disruption of Supply Chains hampers Growth in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific accounts for significant revenue in the solar battery market. Presence of large solar battery manufacturing units in China, and increasing commitment of nations in the region to use solar energy are crucial factors behind growth of solar battery market in the region. However, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has impacted growth of the solar battery market in the region. Disruption of production cycles, unavailability of components due to disruption in supply chain, and large inventory of finished products are some factors that have hampered the solar battery market over the past few months. Impact on R&D due to restrictions on field testing to comply with social distancing orders has further slowed the solar battery market in the region.
