FTZ-F1, a member of the steroid receptor superfamily, has been implicated in the activation of the homeobox segmentation gene fushi tarazu early in Drosophila embryogenesis. We have cloned a developmental isoform of FTZ-F1 and found that it is expressed as a product of the previously identified, midprepupal chromosome puff at 75CD. The 75CD puff occurs in(More)
Light activation of Drosophila photoreceptors leads to the generation of a depolarizing receptor potential via opening of transient receptor potential and transient receptor potential-like cationic channels. Counteracting the light-activated depolarizing current are two voltage-gated K+ conductances, IA and IK, that are expressed in these sensory neurons.(More)
The ultrastructural differentiation and central projection of identified bristle mechanosensory neurons were examined in Drosophila mutants lacking action potentials. Two mutations, parats1 and napts, are known to block axonal conduction in centrally located neurons at high temperatures. Their effects on epithelial sensory cells, which are derived from(More)
The formation and maintenance of the central projections of identified bristle mechanosensory neurons with altered excitability were examined in Drosophila mosaics. Two mutants, eag (ether à go-go) and Sh (Shaker), are known to increase excitability of both nerve and muscle cells and enhance synaptic transmission by affecting different types of K+ currents.(More)
Glomerular capillary remodeling is an essential process in the development of glomerular hypertrophy. Angiopoietins, which are important regulators in angiogenesis, plays a role in the development of glomerulus during embryogenesis. Here, we evaluated the influence of angiopoietin on glomerular components and hypertrophy after uninephrectomy in adult male(More)
Integration technologies like Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Web Services allow organisations to collaborate with their partners, increase flexibility and gain competitive advantages. Despite the benefits that the integration of Information Systems (IS) can offer to enterprises, little attention has paid on the adoption of integration software(More)
