Antisense suppression of the putative ribosomal protein S3A gene disrupts ovarian development in Drosophila melanogaster

The Drosophila melanogaster homologue of the Anopheles gambiae C3 cDNA has been isolated and characterized by sequence analysis. The encoded protein was localized by immunochemical and immunocytochemical methods. The Drosophila C3 protein is highly similar to homologues of disputed function, which have previously been identified in fungi, plants and animals… CONTINUE READING
