Cenci G, Rawson R, Belloni G, Castrillon D, Tudor M, Petrucci R, et al
. UbcD1, a Drosophila ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme required for proper telomere behavior. Genes Dev. 1997;11:863-75 pubmed
..We therefore suggest that at least one of the targets of UbcD1 ubiquitination is a telomere-associated polypeptide that may help maintain proper chromosomal orientation during interphase. ..
Giansanti M, Bonaccorsi S, Williams B, Williams E, Santolamazza C, Goldberg M, et al
. Cooperative interactions between the central spindle and the contractile ring during Drosophila cytokinesis. Genes Dev. 1998;12:396-410 pubmed
..These observations all indicate that proper actin assembly is necessary for centrosome separation and migration. ..
Bonaccorsi S, Giansanti M, Gatti M. Spindle self-organization and cytokinesis during male meiosis in asterless mutants of Drosophila melanogaster. J Cell Biol. 1998;142:751-61 pubmed
..In addition, these findings strongly suggest that the asters are not required for signaling cytokinesis. ..
Bucciarelli E, Giansanti M, Bonaccorsi S, Gatti M. Spindle assembly and cytokinesis in the absence of chromosomes during Drosophila male meiosis. J Cell Biol. 2003;160:993-9 pubmed
..This suggests that the association of Aurora B with chromosomes is not a prerequisite for its accumulation at the central spindle, or for its function during cytokinesis. ..

Ceprani F, Raffa G, Petrucci R, Piergentili R. Autosomal mutations affecting Y chromosome loops in Drosophila melanogaster. BMC Genet. 2008;9:32 pubmed publisher
..These data represent a useful framework for the characterization of Y-loop development at a molecular level and for the study of the genetic control of heterochromatin. ..
