Regeneration and transdetermination in Drosophila imaginal discs.

A historical overview of the field is presented and how the application of modern methods has made the study of disc regeneration amenable to genetic analysis is described, which could provide new insights into tissue regeneration, transdetermination and compensatory proliferation.

Drosophila Imaginal Discs as a Model of Epithelial Wound Repair and Regeneration.

A complete understanding of the various wound-healing mechanisms in Drosophila will be a first step in understanding how to manage damaged human tissues and optimize healing in different clinical contexts.

Drosophila as a Model System to Study Cell Signaling in Organ Regeneration

The signaling networks involved in regulating the variety of cellular responses that are required for discs regeneration of Drosophila melanogaster are reviewed.

The Drosophila Duox maturation factor is a key component of a positive feedback loop that sustains regeneration signaling

By whole-genome transcriptional profiling of regenerating tissue, a positive feedback loop that regulates the extent of regenerative growth is identified that ensures the prolonged JNK activation required for regenerateative growth.

Sp1 modifies leg-to-wing transdetermination in Drosophila.

A Positive Feedback Loop Ensures Propagation of ROS Production and JNK Signaling Throughout Drosophila Tissue Regeneration

It is shown that damage-induced JNK signaling leads to the upregulation of a gene called moladietz, which encodes a co-factor for an enzyme that generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), a key tissue-damage signal.

TIE-DYE: a combinatorial marking system to visualize and genetically manipulate clones during development in Drosophila melanogaster

The TIE-DYE method is developed that allows simultaneous lineage tracing of multiple cell populations as well as the genetic manipulation of a subset of these populations, allowing an assessment of the consequences of alterations in growth, patterning and cell-cell affinity.

Drosophila TIE-DYE : a combinatorial marking system to visualize and genetically manipulate clones during development in Drosophila melanogaster

To understand the development of a tissue or an organ there is a need to describe the origin of cells as well as interactions between cells, and genetic systems that stochastically label cells and all of their progeny have been used to study cell lineages.

Distinct signaling signatures drive compensatory proliferation via S-phase acceleration

This work investigates models of compensatory proliferation in Drosophila imaginal discs and finds that compensatoryiferation is associated with a unique cell cycle profile, which is characterized by short G1 and G2 phases and, surprisingly, by acceleration of the S-phase.



Origin and proliferation of blastema cells during regeneration of Drosophila wing imaginal discs.

It is demonstrated that a substantial number of blastema cells arise from cells in which JNK is activated, and that DNA synthesis and mitosis are activated well before wound healing is completed, in a region where the JNK pathway is activated.

Transdetermination: Drosophila imaginal disc cells exhibit stem cell-like potency.

A Transient Cell Cycle Shift in Drosophila Imaginal Disc Cells Precedes Multipotency

Intercalary regeneration in imaginal wing disk of Drosophila melanogaster

It is shown for the first time that the developmental capacity of imaginal disk cells from Drosophila can be altered by appropriate grafting operations and undergo pattern regulation when parts are removed.

Alterations in the cell cycle of Drosophila imaginal disc cells precede metamorphosis.

Regeneration and transdetermination: the role of wingless and its regulation.

Extensive regulatory capabilities of a Drosophila imaginal disk blastema

It is proposed that regulation is initiated at free cut edges, where a blastema is formed that adds new positional values in a sequence, and on completion of wound healing, blastema growth continues until remaining positional disparities are eliminated by intercalation, as presented in the polar coordinate model.
