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. ...
Genetic Analysis of Programmed Cell Death
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 ...
