  • Genetic Analysis of Programmed Cell Death 

    Alexander, Grace
    The larval fat bodies of Drosophila melanogaster are responsible for storing energy from the larval feeding stages for use during pupal development. In most larval tissues, programmed cell death (PCD) is triggered by two ...
  • The Role of the Caspase Dronc in Fat Body Remodeling in Drosophila melanogaster 

    Saqran, Lubna (2013-05-18)
    During metamorphosis in Drosophila melanogaster larval tissues such as salivary glands are eliminated by programmed cell death (PCD). In contrast, the larval fat body evades PCD and undergoes a process of remodeling ...
