- Drosophila: the genetics of innate immune recognition and responseCatherine A Brennan
Sloan Kettering Institute, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer, New York, New York 10021, USA
Annu Rev Immunol 22:457-83. 2004..Recent work suggests that Drosophila will be a useful model for dissecting virulence mechanisms of several medically important pathogens...
- Psidin is required in Drosophila blood cells for both phagocytic degradation and immune activation of the fat bodyCatherine A Brennan
Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Stanford University School of Medicine, 299 Campus Drive, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Curr Biol 17:67-72. 2007..These data establish a role for the phagocytic blood cells of Drosophila in detection of infection and activation of the humoral immune response...
- Pointed regulates an eye-specific transcriptional enhancer in the Drosophila hedgehog gene, which is required for the movement of the morphogenetic furrowEdward M Rogers
Department of Cell Biology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA
Development 132:4833-43. 2005..Recently, others have shown that this same enhancer also requires the eye determining transcription factor Sine oculis (So). We discuss these data in terms of a model for a combinatorial code of furrow movement...
