    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:10293-8. 2003
    ..Electrophysiological analyses confirm that spalt/spalt-related mutant flies are deaf. These commonalities suggest that there is functional conservation for spalt genes between vertebrates and insects...

    Jessica Plavicki
    Neuroscience Training Program, Department of Anatomy, Cellular and Molecular Biology Training Program, School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:1578-83. 2012
    ..These are important examples of distal-less function in an invertebrate nervous system and demonstrate that the Drosophila larval olfactory system is a powerful model in which to understand distal-less functions during neurogenesis...

    Dev Dyn 232:801-16. 2005
    ..We propose that central cells of the primordium previously thought to contribute to the distal leg are Keilin's organ precursors, while both proximal and distal leg precursors are located more peripherally and within the escargot domain...

  2. Expanding the utility of Drosophila as a model for hearing research
    Grace Boekhoff Falk; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..In light of the emerging developmental genetic parallels between Drosophila and vertebrate auditory organ development, I anticipate that information generated by the proposed experiments also will be relevant to human hearing. ..
