  1. 1. Peptidoglycan recognition proteins in Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå centrum för molekylär patogenes (UCMP) (Medicinska fakulteten)

    Author : Thomas Werner; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Drosophila; PGRP; peptidoglycan; pattern recognition; imd; Relish; isoform; RNAi; mbn-2; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is an excellent model organism to study the innate immune response, because insects and mammals share conserved features regarding the recognition and destruction of microorganisms and Drosophila is easily accessible to genetic manipulation. In my present study, I identified a new family of pattern recognition molecules for bacterial peptidoglycan in Drosophila, the Peptidoglycan Recognition Proteins (PGRP). READ MORE

  2. 2. Drosophila Sensory Neuroethology

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Suzan Mansourian; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018-05]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drosophila melanogaster; Vinegar Fly; olfactory system; hygrosensation; receptor; ancestral habitat;

    Abstract : Animals, like humans, need to perceive their surroundings via their senses in order to make sensible behavioral decisions, reproduce successfully, and survive. Animals are equipped with audition, vision, thermosensation, hygrosensation, mechanosensation, magnetoception, gustation, and olfaction, which detects physical and chemical changes in their habitats.

  3. 3. Mitochondrial Iron Metabolism Study of mitoferrin in Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christoph Metzendorf; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; iron; Drosophila; mitochondria; mitoferrin; ferritin; spermatogenesis; cell cycle; DFO; MRS12; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Biology with specialization in Comparative Physiology; Biologi med inriktning mot jämförande fysiologi;

    Abstract : Iron has a dualistic character. On the one hand it is essential for the life of most organisms, on the other hand it is involved in the generation of reactive oxygen species that are implicated in diseases and aging. READ MORE

  4. 4. Midgut and muscle development in Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of molecular biology

    Author : Margret Shirinian; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
