Cell cycle control by the nucleo-cytoplasmic ratio in early Drosophila development
Parameters controlling transcriptional activation during early drosophila development
Activation of transcription in Drosophila embryos is a gradual process mediated by the nucleocytoplasmic ratio.
It is suggested that titration of transcription factors like ttk by the nucleocytoplasmic ratio triggers zygotic transcription in Drosophila.

Dynamic changes in microtubule configuration correlate with nuclear migration in the preblastoderm Drosophila embryo
It is proposed that cortical migration is driven by microtubule-dependent forces that repel adjacent nuclei, leading to an expansion of the nuclear ellipsoid established by axial expansion.
Cyclin A and B functions in the early Drosophila embryo.
Observations support the hypothesis that cyclin B regulates cytoskeletal changes while cyclin A regulates the nuclear cycles, and speculate that a balance of cyclins is necessary for proper coordination during these embryonic cycles.

The results validate the methods for expression profiling as a way to analyze developmental programs, and show that modifications to chromatin structure are key to changes in cell fate.
Autonomous and nonautonomous Notch functions for embryonic muscle and epidermis development in Drosophila.
Mesodermal expression of a truncated Notch protein lacking the extracellular domain does not rescue ventral epidermis, suggesting that the extra-cellular domain of Notch can non-autonomously rescue epidermal development across germ layers.
