New genes often acquire male-specific functions but rarely become essential in Drosophila.
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2017-09-15)
Relatively little is known about the in vivo functions of newly emerging genes, especially in metazoans. Although prior RNAi studies reported prevalent lethality among young gene knockdowns, our phylogenomic analyses reveal ...
Co-culture Activation of MAP Kinase in Drosophila S2 Cells.
Intercellular communication often involves phosphorylation of signal transduction proteins, including mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Immunological detection of phosphorylated MAPK can be used to monitor ...
IPLA2-VIA is required for healthy aging of neurons, muscle, and the female germline in Drosophila melanogaster.
(PLOS: Public Library of Science, 2021-07-10)
Neurodegenerative disease (ND) is a growing health burden worldwide, but its causes and treatments remain elusive. Although most cases of ND are sporadic, rare familial cases have been attributed to single genes, which ...
