Fifteen years after the identification of a small deletion (H99) in the Drosophila genome, revealing rpr, hid, and grim genes (RHG genes)[1], the field of apoptosis in Drosophila has grown dramatically. Models to study developmental apoptosis have diversified due to the powerful genetic tools in Drosophila and the numerous roles played by apoptosis in its development. Compared with C-elegans, where the role of apoptosis is mainly to eliminate unwanted cells, apoptosis in Drosophila is more… CONTINUE READING
