Distinct morphogenetic functions of similar small GTPases: Drosophila Drac1 is involved in axonal outgrowth and myoblast fusion.
Cloned Drosophila homologs of rac and CDC42, Drac1, and Dcdc42 proteins cause qualitatively distinct morphological defects, suggesting that similar GTPases in the same subfamily have unique roles in morphogenesis.
Expression Cloning of TMEM16A as a Calcium-Activated Chloride Channel Subunit
Changing subunit composition of heteromeric NMDA receptors during development of rat cortex
Direct evidence is presented that NMDA receptors exist in rat neocortex as heteromeric complexes of considerable heterogeneity, some containing both NR2A and NR2B subunits.
Hippocampal Neuronal Polarity Specified by Spatially Localized mPar3/mPar6 and PI 3-Kinase Activity
Properties of the larval neuromuscular junction in Drosophila melanogaster.
The anatomy and physiology of the Drosophila larval neuromuscular junction were studied and Mg2+ reduces transmitter release without altering the fourth power dependence on [Ca2+]o.
Tiling of the Drosophila epidermis by multidendritic sensory neurons.
Together, the data suggest that widespread tiling of the larval body wall involves interactions between growing dendritic processes and as yet unidentified signals that allow avoidance by like dendrites.
Asymmetric distribution of numb protein during division of the sensory organ precursor cell confers distinct fates to daughter cells
Control of Daughter Cell Fates during Asymmetric Division: Interaction of Numb and Notch
atonal is a proneural gene that directs chordotonal organ formation in the Drosophila peripheral nervous system
Drosophila Stardust interacts with Crumbs to control polarity of epithelia but not neuroblasts
It is reported that stardust encodes single PDZ domain MAGUK (membrane-associated guanylate kinase) proteins that are expressed in all primary embryonic epithelia from the onset of gastrulation.
