Baker D, Meadows L, Wang J, Dow J, Russell S. Variable sexually dimorphic gene expression in laboratory strains of Drosophila melanogaster. BMC Genomics. 2007;8:454 pubmed
..Much of this variation reflects sex-specific challenges associated with divergent physiological trade-offs, morphology and regulatory pathways operating within males and females. ..
Dow J, Davies S, Guo Y, Graham S, Finbow M, Kaiser K. Molecular genetic analysis of V-ATPase function in Drosophila melanogaster. J Exp Biol. 1997;200:237-45 pubmed
..These results, while providing the first gene knockouts of V-ATPases in animals, also illustrate the general utility of D. melanogaster as a model for the genetic analysis of ion transport and its control in epithelia. ..
Dow J, Davies S. Integrative physiology and functional genomics of epithelial function in a genetic model organism. Physiol Rev. 2003;83:687-729 pubmed
..With the use of the beautiful genetic tools and extensive genomic resources characteristic of this genetic model, it has been possible to gain unique insights into the structure, function, and control of epithelia. ..
Dow J, Davies S. The Malpighian tubule: rapid insights from post-genomic biology. J Insect Physiol. 2006;52:365-78 pubmed
..The tubule can thus bask in a greatly enhanced reputation as a key tissue for an unexpectedly wide range of functions in the insect...
