- A Dalpha6 knockout strain of Drosophila melanogaster confers a high level of resistance to spinosadTrent Perry
Department of Genetics, Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research, Bio21 Institute, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
Insect Biochem Mol Biol 37:184-8. 2007..This, combined with the high degree of evolutionary conservation of nAChR subunits, suggests that mutations in Dalpha6 orthologues may underpin the spinosad resistance identified in several economically important field pests...
- Mutations in Dalpha1 or Dbeta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunits can confer resistance to neonicotinoids in Drosophila melanogasterTrent Perry
Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research, Department of Genetics, Bio21 Institute of Molecular Science and Biotechnology, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria 3052, Australia
Insect Biochem Mol Biol 38:520-8. 2008..Moreover, some of the mutations may protect the insect against nitenpyram by interfering with subunit assembly or channel activation, rather than affecting binding affinities of neonicotinoids to the channel...
- The genetic basis of resistance to diazinon in natural populations of Drosophila melanogasterFiona M Pyke
Department of Genetics, Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC 3010, Australia
Genetica 121:13-24. 2004..Larval resistance levels, due to single genes (or gene complexes) on chromosomes II and III, were significant (15-fold). Evidence indicates that the gene on chromosome II is Cyp6g1...

- Alternative splicing removes an Ets interaction domain from Lozenge during Drosophila eye developmentKristina Jackson Behan
University of West Florida, Pensacola 32514, USA
Dev Genes Evol 215:423-35. 2005..We suggest that during eye development, Lozenge isoforms function in divergent roles, either interacting with Pointed on downstream targets or by functioning independently to establish distinct cell fates...
