    Visual information received from the three types of photoreceptor neurons (R1-R6, R7 and R8) in the fly compound eyes converges to the external part of the medulla neuropil (M1-M6 layers) in a layer-specific fashion: R7 ...

  • Lampe, David J.; Grant, Theresa E.; Robertson, Hugh M. (Genetics Society of America, 1998-05)
    Mariner family transposable elements are widespread in animals, but their regulation is poorly understood, partly because only two are known to be functional. These are particular copies of the Dmmar1 element from Drosophila ...

    Vitamin-K epoxide reductase is encoded by the VKORC1 gene in mammals and other vertebrates, which also have a paralog, VKORC1L1. Single homologs are present in basal deuterostome and insect genomes, including Drosophila, ...

  • Robertson, Hugh M.; Engels, William R. (Genetics Society of America, 1989-12)
    Activity of the P family of transposable elements in Drosophila melanogaster is regulated primarily by a cellular condition known as P cytotype. It has been hypothesized that P cytotype depends on a P element-encoded ...

    During metamorphosis of the insect brain, the optic lobe anlagen generate the proliferation centers for the visual cortices. We show here that, in the moth Manduca sexta, an 80 kDa Golgi complex protein (Ms-golgin80) is ...

    Nonautonomous P elements normally excise and transpose only when a source of transposase is supplied, and only in the germline. The germline specificity depends on one of the introns of the transposase gene which is not ...

    A single P element insert in Drosophila melanogoster, called P[ry+A2-3](99B), is described that causes mobilization of other elements at unusually high frequencies, yet is itself remarkably stable. Its transposase activity ...

    We describe here a family of P elements that we refer to as type I repressors. These elements are identified by their repressor functions and theilra ck of any deletion within the first two-thirds of the canonical P ...

    Various stocks of Drosophila mauritiana and D. sechellia were found to be infected with Wolbachia, a Rickettsia-like bacterium that is known to cause cytoplasmic incompatibility and other reproductive abnormalities in ...
