  1. 1. Peptidoglycan recognition proteins in Drosophila melanogaster

    Author : Thomas Werner; Dan Hultmark; Bruno Lemaitre; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Drosophila; PGRP; peptidoglycan; pattern recognition; imd; Relish; isoform; RNAi; mbn-2; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; 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

    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

    Author : Christoph Metzendorf; Maria Lind Karlberg; Kenneth Söderhäll; Martina Muckenthaler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; iron; Drosophila; mitochondria; mitoferrin; ferritin; spermatogenesis; cell cycle; DFO; MRS12; Cell and molecular biology; 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

    Author : Margret Shirinian; Ruth Palmer; Anne Uve; Umeå universitet; []
