Name: Rohon-Beard neuron
Synonyms: RB neuron, Rohon-Beard cell, Rohon-Beard neurons
Definition: Primary sensory neurons with cell bodies located in the dorsal spinal cord, that innervate the integument of the trunk and tail at early larval stages. The cutaneous axons of Rohon-Beard neurons display a broad spectrum of peripheral axon branching patterns. Most Rohon-Beard neurons undergo apoptosis by 5dpf.
Ontology: Anatomy Ontology [ZFA:0009150]
Name: endoplasmic reticulum
Synonyms: ER
Definition: The irregular network of unit membranes, visible only by electron microscopy, that occurs in the cytoplasm of many eukaryotic cells. The membranes form a complex meshwork of tubular channels, which are often expanded into slitlike cavities called cisternae. The ER takes two forms, rough (or granular), with ribosomes adhering to the outer surface, and smooth (with no ribosomes attached).
