  1. ncbi even-skipped determines the dorsal growth of motor axons in Drosophila
    M Landgraf
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Neuron 22:43-52. 1999
    ..Thus, even-skipped complements the function of islet, and together these two genes constitute a bimodal switch regulating axonal growth and directing motor axons to ventral or to dorsal regions of the muscle field...
  2. ncbi Muscle founder cells regulate defasciculation and targeting of motor axons in the Drosophila embryo
    M Landgraf
    Department of Zoology, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EJ, UK
    Curr Biol 9:589-92. 1999
    ..This suggests that the muscle field is structured into sets of muscles, each expressing a common defasciculation cue for a particular nerve branch...
  3. pmc Embryonic origins of a motor system: motor dendrites form a myotopic map in Drosophila
    Matthias Landgraf
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 1:E41. 2003
    ..Our results suggest that the cues that organise the myotopic map may be laid down early in development as the embryo subdivides into parasegmental units...
  4. ncbi Presynaptic development at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction: assembly and localization of presynaptic active zones
    A Prokop
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Neuron 17:617-26. 1996
    ..Thus, the process of synapse formation can be genetically separated from the process of target recognition, revealing that localization of presynaptic active zones requires mef2-dependent muscle differentiation...
  5. ncbi A distinct set of founders and fusion-competent myoblasts make visceral muscles in the Drosophila embryo
    B S Martin
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3EJ, UK
    Development 128:3331-8. 2001
    ..These specialisations are revealed in mutant embryos where myoblast fusion fails. In the absence of fusion, founders make mononucleate circular or longitudinal fibres, while their fusion-competent neighbours remain undifferentiated...
  6. ncbi Development of larval body wall muscles
    M Bate
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Int Rev Neurobiol 43:25-44. 1999

    Alex Mauss
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 7:e1000200. 2009
    ..We further propose that sets of connections may be specified, at least to a degree, by global patterning systems that deliver pre- and postsynaptic partner terminals to common "meeting regions."..

    Matthias Landgraf
    Department of Zoology, Downing Street, CB2 3EJ, Cambridge, UK
    Dev Biol 260:207-25. 2003
    ..Using the Fasciclin2-based mapping procedure as a standard (e.g., in a common database) would facilitate studies on the functional architecture of the neuropile and the identification of candiate circuit elements...
  10. pmc Structural homeostasis: compensatory adjustments of dendritic arbor geometry in response to variations of synaptic input
    Marco Tripodi
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 6:e260. 2008
    ..The growing arbor thus counterbalances naturally occurring variations in synaptic density and activity so as to ensure that an appropriate level of input is achieved...
