RNAi triggered by symmetrically transcribed transgenes in Drosophila melanogaster.
Specific silencing of target genes can be induced in a variety of organisms by providing homologous double-stranded RNA molecules. In vivo, these molecules can be generated either by transcription ofExpand

Drosophila melanogaster holocarboxylase synthetase is a chromosomal protein required for normal histone biotinylation, gene transcription patterns, lifespan, and heat tolerance.
Post-translational modifications of histones play important roles in chromatin structure and genomic stability. Distinct lysine residues in histones are targets for covalent binding of biotin,Expand

The clot gene of Drosophila melanogaster encodes a conserved member of the Thioredoxin-like protein superfamily
The conversion of pyruvoyl-H4-pterin to pyrimidodiazepine (PDA), which is an essential step in the biosynthesis of the red components of Drosophila eye pigments known as drosopterins, requires theExpand
