  1. pmc Resveratrol inhibits protein translation in hepatic cells
    Eugenia Villa-Cuesta
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 6:e29513. 2011
    ..We conclude that resveratrol is an inhibitor of global protein synthesis, and that this effect is mediated through modulation of mTOR-dependent and independent signaling...
  2. pmc Apposition of iroquois expressing and non-expressing cells leads to cell sorting and fold formation in the Drosophila imaginal wing disc
    Eugenia Villa-Cuesta
    Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa, CSIC and UAM, Cantoblanco, 28049 Madrid, Spain
    BMC Dev Biol 7:106. 2007
    ..These territories are separated by an approximately straight boundary that in the mature disc is associated with an epithelial fold. The mechanism by which these two cell populations are kept separate is unclear...
  3. pmc A role for Drosophila dFoxO and dFoxO 5'UTR internal ribosomal entry sites during fasting
    Eugenia Villa-Cuesta
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e11521. 2010
    ..IRES mediated translation of dFoxO and dInR may be essential to ensure function and sensitivity of the insulin signaling pathway during fasting...
  4. ncbi Mutual repression between msh and Iro-C is an essential component of the boundary between body wall and wing in Drosophila
    Eugenia Villa-Cuesta
    Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa, CSIC and UAM, Cantoblanco, 28049 Madrid, Spain
    Development 132:4087-96. 2005
    ..In addition, we find that msh is necessary for proper growth of the hinge territory and the differentiation of hinge structures. msh also participates in the patterning of the notum, where it is expressed at low levels...
  5. pmc Tufted is a gain-of-function allele that promotes ectopic expression of the proneural gene amos in Drosophila
    Eugenia Villa-Cuesta
    Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa, CSIC and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Cantoblanco, 28049 Madrid, Spain
    Genetics 163:1403-12. 2003
    ..This ability might be related to the wild-type function of amos in promoting development of large clusters of closely spaced olfactory sensilla...
  6. pmc Drosophila germ-line modulation of insulin signaling and lifespan
    Thomas Flatt
    Division of Biology and Medicine, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University, Box G W, Providence, RI 02912, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:6368-73. 2008
    ..These results suggest that signals from the gonad regulate lifespan and modulate insulin sensitivity in the fly and that the gonadal regulation of aging is evolutionarily conserved...
