It is occasionally observed that common sporadic diseases have rare familial counterparts in which mutations at a single locus result in a similar disorder exhibiting simple Mendelian inheritance. Such an observation is often sufficient justification for the creation of a disease model in the fly. Whether the system is based on the over-expression of a toxic variant of a human protein or requires the loss of function of an orthologous fly gene, the consequent phenotypes can be used to… CONTINUE READING
