Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by progressive neuronal and synaptic degeneration, as well as decreased cognition over time. AD is prevalent in today’s society, comprising ...
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 ...
TEM Analysis of Autophagy in Drosophila melanogaster Fat Body Throughout the Progression of Metamorphosis
