  1. 1. Communicate or die signalling in Drosophila immunity

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

    Author : Karin Borge-Renberg; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Drosophila; innate immunity; PGRP-LC; pattern recognition; JNK; antimicrobial peptides; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics Molecular biology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : In general the work behind this thesis has revolved around the interesting pattern recognition gene family PGRPs (peptidoglycan recognition proteins). In particular the transmembrane PGRP-LC and to investigate its multifaceted role in the immune response of the fruit fly. READ MORE

  2. 2. Drosophila Sensory Neuroethology

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

    Author : Suzan Mansourian; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [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. 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

  4. 4. Chemical signalling in the Drosophila brain GABA, short neuropeptide F and their receptors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Lina E. Enell; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Insect nervous system; Drosophila; GABA; sNPF; GPCR; ion channel receptor; feeding; metabolic stress; olfaction; antennal; lobe; mushroom body; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Morphology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Morfologi; Functional Zoomorphology; funktionell morfologi;

    Abstract : Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and short neuropeptide F (sNPF) are widespread signalling molecules in the brain of insects. In order to understand more about the signalling and to some extent start to unravel the functional roles of these two substances, this study has examined the locations of the transmitters and their receptors in the brain of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster using immunocytochemistry in combination with Gal4/UAS technique.

  5. 5. Nucleoporins and Protein Transport in Drosophila

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Peggy Roth; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NPC; Nucleoporin; Nup88; Nup214; CRM1; Dorsal; Drosophila; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : Many biological responses rely on the selective translocation of transcriptional regulators in and out of the nucleus through nuclear pore complexes (NPC). More than one million macromolecules per minute pass through the NPC and an important challenge is to understand the coordination of nucleocytoplasmic trafficking. READ MORE
