Genetic Models Meet Trophic Mechanisms EGF Family Members Are Gliatrophins in Drosophila

Abstract

Trophic survival mechanisms are crucial for the determination of cell numbers in the developing vertebrate nervous system, but important neurotrophic factor families such as the neurotrophins have not yet been found in either Drosophila or C. elegans. Two independent studies on distinct glial populations in Drosophila have now shown that their survival is… (More)
