Isoform-Specific Effects of the DOA Kinase on Autophagic Cell Death of the Larval Salivary Glands in Drosophila melanogaster
Families of protein kinases have been conserved over millions of years, and they play important roles in many cellular processes such as the cell cycle, differentiation, and signal transduction (Neiman, 1993). Doa, or ...
TEM Analysis of Autophagy in Drosophila melanogaster Fat Body Throughout the Progression of Metamorphosis
Autophagy, the catabolic mechanism whereby stored nutrients are recycled, and the breakdown of problematic proteins and organelles within a cell, is an essential process necessary for maintenance of cellular homeostasis. ...
The role of Matrix metalloproteinase-2 in Drosophila melanogaster prepupal and pupal fat body autophagy
Autophagy is the mechanism by which an organism can dispose of parts of its cells. This mechanism plays a vital role in many human diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, includings Alzheimer's disease ...
