Camp 2017 01 Aug 2017

As part of our annual program we provide an 8 day adventure holiday. For some this is their only time away from home. This is provided at very low cost to those attending, to ensure that no one is excluded and heavily subsidised by fund raising activities. We plan and provide as many of the activities as we can in-house so as to keep the costs to a minimum. Some of the more challenging activities however require specialist leadership that goes beyond the skills that we currently have. The week away helps young people to understand the need to routine and self discipline in life. Activities are both challenging and of interest. During the week the young people will visit Haytor Rock, undertake a trek across the moor, visit a conservation centre, bush craft, an activity day with balance beam, Pampa Pole, Rock climbing, swimming, multi sports and challenges. The activities program is designed to provide challenging situations that help the young person develop in confidence. Pushing young people beyond where they would normally be. This year we are wanting to provide for a day session of Beams & Pampa Pole in the morning and Rock Climbing. Balance Beams This is a treetop favourites, participants walk along horizontal telegraph poles set high up in the trees. The key word in the last sentence is definitely ‘high’ but they will be secured by a rope and harness controlled by the rest of their group! Pampa Pole This activity is anything but pampering… participants climb to the top of a pole while attached to a rope then jump off and attempt to touch a swinging ball. This looks easy when their feet are on the ground… Rock Climbing/Abseiling Dartmoor is a wonderful place for groups to try climbing. Many of the granite tors scattered across Dartmoor offer a range of routes, including some challenging ones but we also offer various opportunities for learning the basic skills of climbing. Due to the location on the edge of Dartmoor we are spoilt for choice with several popular rock climbing locations all within half an hour’s drive. For introductory climbing sessions we will use Leigh Tor, Dewerstone or Chudleigh.

Quantifying the development of neural progenitor polarisation 27 Apr 2017

Apicobasal polarity plays a fundamental role in the defining functional features of neural progenitors during the early stages of embryonic development. The apical pole in neural progenitors is specialized for multiple rounds of progenitor divisions, resulting in brain growth, where as the basal pole forms the environment where neuronal differentiation will occur. However, it is not well understood how the apicobasal polarity of neural progenitors is established. During the project, we will test a hypothesis which suggests that apicobasal polarity is progressively generated and can be monitored by quantifying a Cdh2 protein gradient along the apicobasal axis in neural progenitors. A key goal will be to determine the distribution of the Cdh2 protein over time during neural progenitor polarization. To do this we will make three-dimensional time-lapse movies of developing neural primordium in zebrafish embryos that express a transgene Cdh2-GFP. The transgene containing GFP will make it possible to visualize the distribution of the Cdh2-protein during progenitor polarization. Quantification will be done using FIJI image analysis software.

A study of the interactions between proteins involved in chromosome segregation in Bacillus subtilis using the yeast-two-hybrid system 27 Apr 2017

During sporulation in the bacterium Bacillus subtilis, one of the sister chromosomes is translocated into the developing prespore. This mechanism is a useful model for studying chromosome segregation, a process which is vital in all organisms. The exact mechanism of chromosome segregation in sporulating B. subtilis is not fully understood. A protein complex, involving many proteins including Soj, Spo0J, MinD, MinJ, RacA, ComN and DivIVA, is known to anchor the origins of the sister chromosomes at opposite cell poles. We propose to test the direct interactions between members of this protein complex using yeast-two-hybrid assays. To begin with we will test interactions between the proteins Soj, Spo0J and MinD. Each of these are known to form dimers, and results from genetic and cell biology studies show that interactions between Soj-Spo0J and Soj-MinD are important for the anchoring of the chromosome origins to the cell poles. These latter interactions have not been shown directly and we aim to test these in this project. The project will hopefully move on to test further protein interactions in the complex, including those with RacA and ComN. Any interactions observed between these proteins will further our understanding of chromosome segregation in B. subtilis.
