Characterization of the development and function of the neuromuscular junction in Drosophila melanogaster
Drosophila melanogaster is an excellent model system for studying the molecular mechanisms of neuronal development and function, since many of the basic components and processes within the nervous system are highly conserved ...
Cloning and sequencing ofpushover, a Drosophila gene affecting neuronal activity and glial morphology
pushover (push) is a mutation that causes neuronal hyperexcitability, uncoordination and male sterility. Here it is also shown that push mutant wandering third instar larvae exhibit segmental nerves that are slightly ...
The vascular system of the rabbit ovary and its relationship to ovulation
Abstract Not Available.
Cloning and characterization of genes required for osmoregulation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Salt stress induces multiple physiological responses in unicellular organisms. Responses include both immediate effects upon membrane permeability to select cytoplasmic solutes and changes in gene expression. This study ...
Studies on the lipid metabolism of cestodes
The problem of the energy relationship is fundamental in any investigation of animal physiology. Endoparasitic helminths present a rather unique ecological situation since the energy sources and substrates for the parasite ...
The production of mutations in Drosophila melanogaster by irradiation with alpha-rays
The artificial transmutation of the gene is an old problem. Investigators tried to produce mutations artificially, but failed until 1927 when Muller announced that gene mutations could be produced by means of X-rays. This ...
