The structure and sequence of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
The work described involves the isolation and characterization of the gene encoding the calmodulin protein in the dipteran species, Drosophila melanogaster. The two major protein coding exons, designated 2 and 3, had been ...
Identification and characterization ofbemused, a Drosophila gene involved in neuronal excitability, gametogenesis and embryonic development
During a screen for novel genes involved in the process of neurotransmission, a gene, bemused, was identified as the result of a transposon insertion at 85D on the third chromosome. Mutation of bem produces flies that are ...
Genes expressed during oogenesis in Calliphora erythrocephala and Drosophila melanogaster
We were interested in identifying genes in the dipteran flies Calliphora erythrocephala and Drosophila melanogaster with a role in oogenesis and early embryogenesis. A biochemical screen was used to complement the extensive ...
Characterization ofbicaudal, a maternal effect mutation of Drosophila melanogaster
The Drosophila melanogaster mutation bicaudal (bic) is the founding member of the group of maternal effect mutations that disrupt anterior-posterior axis formation by creating mirror image duplications of posterior segments ...
