Activation of a Meiotic Checkpoint during Drosophila Oogenesis Regulates the Translation of Gurken through Chk2/Mnk


BACKGROUND During Drosophila oogenesis, unrepaired double-strand DNA breaks activate a mei-41-dependent meiotic checkpoint, which couples the progression through meiosis to specific developmental processes. This checkpoint affects the accumulation of Gurken protein, a transforming growth factor alpha-like signaling molecule, as well as the morphology of the… (More)
