    Kimberly McCall
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    Curr Opin Cell Biol 22:882-8. 2010
    ..This review highlights recent findings from C. elegans, yeast, Dictyostelium, Drosophila, and mammals that collectively provide evidence for conserved mechanisms of necrosis...

    Kimberly McCall
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    Dev Biol 274:3-14. 2004
    ..Recent findings suggest that these different types of cell death involve distinct genetic pathways. This review focuses on progress towards elucidating the molecular mechanisms acting during programmed cell death in Drosophila oogenesis...

    Tracy L Pritchett
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, MA 02215, USA

    Jeanne S Peterson
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
    Genesis 45:396-404. 2007

    Kimberly McCall
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA
    Methods Mol Biol 559:343-56. 2009
    ..We focus on methods for the embryo and the ovary, but these techniques can be used on other tissues as well. The third method is the detection of genetic interactions by expressing cell death genes in the Drosophila eye...
  7. pmc Germline cell death is inhibited by P-element insertions disrupting the dcp-1/pita nested gene pair in Drosophila
    Bonni Laundrie

    Genetics 165:1881-8. 2003
    ..These findings suggest that the combinatorial loss of pita and dcp-1 leads to the increased survival of abnormal egg chambers in mutants bearing the P-element alleles and that dcp-1 is essential for cell death during mid-oogenesis...
