..FGF signaling guides tracheal cell migration in the embryo. However, misexpression of branchless in the ovary had no effect on border cell migration. Thus border cells and tracheal cells appear to be guided differently. ..
Rørth P, Szabo K, Texido G. The level of C/EBP protein is critical for cell migration during Drosophila oogenesis and is tightly controlled by regulated degradation. Mol Cell. 2000;6:23-30 pubmed
..The Ubp64 ubiquitin hydrolase acts as a stabilizer of Slbo protein. A novel gene, tribbles, is a negative regulator of slbo in vivo. Tribbles acts by specifically targeting Slbo for rapid degradation via ubiquitination. ..
