Myoblast fusion is essential for the formation and regeneration of skeletal muscle. In a genetic screen for regulators of muscle development in Drosophila, we discovered a gene encoding a guanine nucleotide exchange factor, called loner, which is required for myoblast fusion. Loner localizes to subcellular sites of fusion and acts downstream of cell surface(More)

The present study aimed at deducing the relationship between the structure of the molecule and its antiprotozoan activity. Nine dinitroanilines, all of which were(More)
