Comparative Analysis of Satellite DNA in the Drosophila melanogaster Species Complex
Satellite DNAs are highly repetitive sequences that account for the majority of constitutive heterochromatin in many eukaryotic genomes. It is widely recognized that sequences and locations ofExpand

Mechanisms of rDNA Copy Number Maintenance.
rDNA, the genes encoding the RNA components of ribosomes (rRNA), are highly repetitive in all eukaryotic genomes, containing 100s to 1000s of copies, to meet the demand for ribosome biogenesis. rDNAExpand

Transgenerational dynamics of rDNA copy number in Drosophila male germline stem cells
rDNA loci, composed of hundreds of tandemly duplicated arrays of rRNA genes, are known to be among the most unstable genetic elements due to their repetitive nature. rDNA instability underlies agingExpand

Regulation of nucleolar dominance in Drosophila melanogaster
In eukaryotic genomes, ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes exist as tandemly repeated clusters, forming ribosomal DNA (rDNA) loci. Each rDNA locus typically contains hundreds of rRNA genes to meet the highExpand

Exploring Cell Intrinsic Factors to Promote Regeneration of Injured Central Nervous System Axons
Author(s): Warsinger-Pepe, Natalie Rose | Abstract: The identification of cell intrinsic factors that enhance the regeneration of central nervous system (CNS) axons is of particular interest for axonExpand
