Coordination between Insulin Signaling and Ecdysone Signaling during Drosophila melanogaster Development
Insulin signaling is a remarkably conserved pathway that regulates nutrient storage and release in vertebrates and invertebrates. In Drosophila, growth and development are balanced through a mechanism involving insulin and ...
Genetic Analysis of Non-Apoptotic Programmed Cell Death
Programmed cell death (PCD) serves a variety of key roles during development and homeostasis. In most cases, PCD occurs via apoptosis, a highly orchestrated process that is primarily dependent on the activity of caspase ...
The Effects of Ketogenic Supplements on Protein Expression and Autophagy in The Drosophila melanogaster Feeding Third Instar Larval Fat Body
The ketogenic diet is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet that is thought to be beneficial to health. Due to the low intake of carbohydrates in the ketogenic diet, the main energy fuel, glucose is depleted, and insulin levels ...
