- Eikenes Ã, MalerÃ¸d L, Christensen A, Steen C, Mathieu J, Nezis I, et al. ALIX and ESCRT-III coordinately control cytokinetic abscission during germline stem cell division in vivo. PLoS Genet. 2015;11:e1004904 pubmed publisher..The mechanisms of abscission in living metazoan tissues are however not well understood. Here we show that ALIX and the ESCRT-III component Shrub are required for completion of abscission during Drosophila female germline stem ..
- van Eeden F, Palacios I, Petronczki M, Weston M, St Johnston D. Barentsz is essential for the posterior localization of oskar mRNA and colocalizes with it to the posterior pole. J Cell Biol. 2001;154:511-23 pubmed..Thus, Barentsz is essential for the posterior localization of oskar mRNA and behaves as a specific component of the oskar RNA transport complex. ..

J Cell Biol. 2014;206:671-88 pubmed publisher..These results demonstrate a new function for the MVB-exosome pathway in the reproductive tract that appears to be conserved across evolution. ..
- Bischoff M, Gradilla A, Seijo I, AndrÃ©s G, RodrÃguez Navas C, GonzÃ¡lez MÃ©ndez L, et al. Cytonemes are required for the establishment of a normal Hedgehog morphogen gradient in Drosophila epithelia. Nat Cell Biol. 2013;15:1269-81 pubmed publisher..Indeed, mutant conditions that affect cytoneme formation reduce both cytoneme length and Hh gradient length. Our results suggest that cytoneme-mediated Hh transport is the mechanistic basis for Hh gradient formation. ..
