There is a resurgence of interest in the Drosophila midgut on account of its potential value in understanding the structure, development and function of digestive organs and related epithelia. The recent identification of regenerative or stem cells in the adult gut of Drosophila has opened up new avenues for understanding development and turnover of cells in insect and mammalian gastrointestinal tracts. Conversely, the physiology of the Drosophila gut is less well understood as it is a… CONTINUE READING
