Primary Culture of Drosophila melanogaster Glial Cells
Glial cells are one of the most abundant cell types in human brains, yet there is very little that we actually know about these cells. We do know that glial cells are important and vital regulators of the function of the ...
Investigating the Effects of Environmental Enrichment on a Drosophila Model of Tau Toxicity
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other tauopathies are characterized pathologically by neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) composed of the microtubule-associated protein tau. These tangles correlate strongly with regional cell ...
The Role of MMP2 in Drosophila melanogaster Fat Body Remodeling
Matrix metalloproteinases are enzymes involved in important tissue remodeling mechanisms in many animal systems, including mammalian. They are required for scar resorption during wound healing, and are believed to also ...
