The Role of the Drosophila Anorexia (Anox) Gene in Insulin Signaling and Metamorphosis
Following the discovery of Insulin, it took the rest of the twentieth century to understand how this hormone regulates intracellular metabolism; however, understanding how insulin induces its profound effects on blood-glucose ...
A Genetic Screen for Genes Involved in Tissue Remodeling
Tissue remodeling is vital to the health of any multicellular organism. Drosophila melanogaster, which undergoes tissue remodeling during metamorphosis, provides an excellent model to study this process due to highly ...
