Investigating the Effect of Neuronal Tau Expression on Aggression in a Drosophila melanogaster Model of Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the aggregation and hyperphosphorylation of the microtubule-associated protein, tau. It is characterized by a variety of cognitive and behavioral ...
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 ...
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 ...
The role of Aur-A in Drosophila melanogaster fat body remodeling
Tissue remodeling is an important process in multicellular organisms that is necessary for processes such as wound healing and tumor metastasis. For remodeling to occur, connective proteins of the extracellular matrix ...
The Role of desat1 in Courtship and Pheromone Synthesis of Male and Female Drosophila Melanogaster
Sexual reproduction has fascinated scientists for centuries. The analysis of animal sexual behavior in other animals has helped to enlighten us about human sexual behavior 1. However, it has been argued that our mating ...
Identifying Genes Involved in Larval Fat Body Remodeling in Drosophila melanogaster
Tissue remodeling is an essential process that occurs in multicellular organisms and is essential for the growth, development, and health of any organism. Drosophila melanogaster is an important organism for the study ...
