A Biological Approach for Obtaining Quantitative Data to Mathematically Model Transcriptional Regulation in Drosophila melanogaster
ABSTRACT Understanding the genetic control of development is both important and exciting because it has the potential to lead us to revolutionary discoveries that could provide advancements in numerous fields ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
