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 ...
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 ...
THE SECOND OPTIC LOBE OF THE CRAYFISH VISUAL SYSTEM: ORGANIZATION OF COLUMNAR AND EXTRACOLUMNAR PATHWAYS
The crayfish Sustaining fibers (SFs) are used to analyze the functional organization of the second optic lobe, the Medulla. The SFs are tonic ON visual interneurons whose dendrites lie in a single plane in the Medullary ...
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 ...
