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 ...
Cloning and sequencing of inebriated, a gene encoding a neurotransmitter transporter in Drosophila melanogaster
Behavioral and electrophysiological studies on mutants defective in the Drosophila inebriated (ine) gene demonstrated increased excitability of the motor neuron. In this thesis is described the cloning and sequence analysis ...
The expression and regulation of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
Calcium and calmodulin-based regulation of cell activity is one of the most widespread signaling mechanisms in eukaryotic organisms. Extensive experimentation has uncovered many diverse roles for calcium signals, many of ...
