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 of… Expand

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 the… Expand
Bap170, a Subunit of the Drosophila PBAP Chromatin Remodeling Complex, Negatively Regulates the EGFR Signaling
BAP and PBAP constitute the two different forms of the Drosophila melanogaster Brahma chromatin remodelers. A common multisubunit core, containing the Brahma ATPase, can associate either with Osa to… Expand
