The DrosDel Collection
TLDR
A collection of P-element insertions that have considerable utility for generating custom chromosomal aberrations in Drosophila melanogaster are described and their end points mapped, with base-pair resolution, to the genome sequence. Expand
A 1-Megadalton ESC/E(Z) Complex from Drosophila That Contains Polycomblike and RPD3
TLDR
It is suggested that there may be multiple ESC/E(Z) complexes with distinct functions in vivo, and Rpd3 mutations enhance the phenotypes of Pcl mutants, further indicating that RPD3 is required for PcG silencing and possibly for PCL function. Expand
The DrosDel Deletion Collection: A Drosophila Genomewide Chromosomal Deficiency Resource
TLDR
A computational resource that facilitates selection of appropriate elements for generating custom deletions and other mapped FRT-bearing elements that, when combined with the DrosDel collection, can theoretically generate over half a million precisely mapped deletions. Expand
Headless flies produced by mutations in the paralogous Pax6 genes eyeless and twin of eyeless.
TLDR
The two Pax6 gene homologs eyeless and twin of eyeless play decisive early roles in Drosophila eye development and are mainly required to prevent early cell death and promote eye development in eye-antennal discs. Expand
Detection and quantification of Cladosporium in aerosols by real-time PCR.
TLDR
Monitoring Cladosporium in indoor environments is more important than in outdoor environments from the public health point of view because its concentration could still be exceeding the threshold value for clinical significance. Expand
The Drosophila Pax6 paralogs have different functions in head development but can partially substitute for each other
TLDR
It is concluded that Toy and Ey, to some extent, can substitute for each other, and the phenotypes of the rescued flies indicate that the two Pax6 genes are specialized to regulate defined structures of the fly head. Expand
Detection and Quantification of Wallemia sebi in Aerosols by Real-Time PCR, Conventional PCR, and Cultivation
TLDR
Two sets of PCR primers specific to Wallemia sebi that can be applied in either conventional PCR or real-time PCR for rapid detection and quantification of the fungus in environmental samples proved to be highly specific and sensitive for W. sebi detection even in a high background of other fungal DNAs. Expand
Mutations in the Drosophila melanogaster Gene Encoding S-adenosylmethionine Suppress Position-Effect Variegation
TLDR
Results presented here suggest that polyamines are an important molecule class in the regulation of chromatin structure in Drosophila melanogaster. Expand
In vivo analysis of Drosophila SU(Z)12 function
TLDR
It is shown that Su(z)12 is essential for tri-methylation of the lysine 27 residue of histone H3 in vivo, and that overexpression of SU(Z)12 in somatic clones results in higher levels of hist one methylation, indicating that SU( Z) 12 is rate limiting for the enzymatic activity of PRC2. Expand
Molecular cloning of the S‐adenosylmethionine synthetase gene in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The isolated and sequenced cDNA clones encoding the Drosophila melanogaster S‐adenosylmethionine synthetase have an unusually long 5′‐untranslated region, which might be of importance for translational regulation. Expand
