Does Unc-GFP uncover ciliary structures in the rhabdomeric eye of Drosophila?

The uncoordinated (unc) gene product, a potential ortholog of mammalian orofaciodigital syndrome 1 (Ofd1), is involved in the assembly of the ciliary axoneme in Drosophila and it is, therefore, constrained to cell types that have ciliary structures, namely type 1 sensory neurons and male germ cells. Here, we show that evenly spaced Unc-GFP spots are present… CONTINUE READING
