Abstract: A cluster of genes of the CYP6 family was found in a series of overlapping lambda DASH clones from a genomic library of the house fly, Musca domestica, Four complete genes, CYP6A3, CYP6A4, CYP6A5, and CYP6C1, and fragments of two other genes, CYP6A6 and CYP6C2, were closely linked on a...

Retroposition is widely found to play essential roles in origination of new mammalian and other animal genes. However, the scarcity of retrogenes in plants has led to the assumption that plant genomes rarely evolve new gene duplicates by retroposition, despite abundant retrotransposons in plants...
Vertebrate development requires the activity of multiple members of the myocyte enhancer factor 2 (mef2) gene family for muscle cell specification and subsequent differentiation. Additionally, it is thought that several muscle-specific functions of MEF2 family proteins require binding additional...
Endocycles, which are characterised by repeated rounds of DNA replication without intervening mitosis, are involved in developmental processes associated with an increase in metabolic cell activity and are part of terminal differentiation. Endocycles are currently viewed as a restriction of the...
Genetic, genomic and molecular studies of signaling pathways controlling ecdysone biosynthesis in Drosophila melanogasterDownload
In insects, periodic pulses of the molting hormone ecdysone control all major developmental transitions such as the molts and metamorphosis. Ecdysone, a steroid hormone, is produced in the prothoracic gland during larval and pupal development of Drosophila. While we have a relatively good...
If all cells in a multicellular organism contain exactly the same genetic information, the question arises of how tissue types with distinct gene expression profiles are formed and maintained over the life of the organism. These different temporal and spatial gene expression patterns are thought...
The innate immune system is an evolutionarily conserved first line of defense against invasive microbes. Studies in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, revolutionized the field of immunology and cemented Drosophila as a premier model of innate immune defenses. The Drosophila immune deficiency...
Expansion of ruminant-specific microRNAs shapes target gene expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant speciesDownload
Background Understanding how species-specific microRNAs (miRNAs) contribute to species-specific phenotypes is a central topic in biology. This study aimed to elucidate the role of ruminant-specific miRNAs in shaping mRNA expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant species. ...
Merlin is a tumor suppressor protein whose inactivation is associated with familial Neurofibromatosis Type II (NF2) and other sporadic tumors. The growth-suppressive function of Merlin is modulated by reversible phosphorylation. Our previous finding showed the Sterile20 kinase Slik coordinately...
