SuperFly a history of genetics( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With two thirds of the same DNA as our own and a two-week breeding cycle, Drosophila melanogaster, or the fruit fly, is an ideal lab specimen. Using specialized photography, 3-D animation, and graphics, this program tells the story of the fruit fly's role in the history of genetics. Dramatizations recap Thomas Morgan's groundbreaking experiments at Columbia University. Nobel laureate Professor Eric Wieschaus of Princeton University, Professor Tim Tully of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Professor Mike Levine of the University of California, Berkeley, and other scientists discuss ongoing research
Understanding reproductive aging regulation and mechanisms using a Caenorhabditis elegans model by Shijing Luo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human female reproductive capacity declines early in adulthood due to decreased oocyte quality, with higher rates of infertility, miscarriage, and birth defects especially after mid-30s. Recently, due to the work from our lab, the Kornfeld lab, and the Ellis lab, C. elegans has emerged as a model to study reproductive aging. My thesis work focuses on (1) studying the genetic regulation of C. elegans reproductive cessation; (2) developing a systematic approach to analyze different steps involved in C. elegans reproductive aging; and (3) studying the underlying molecular mechanisms of reproductive aging
Quantitative Analysis of Signaling Pathways: Imaging and Modeling of the Terminal Patterning System of the Drosophila Embryo by Yoosik Kim( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In my thesis, I analyzed the mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway, an essential regulator of cellular processes in all eukaryotes. The MAPK pathway is a three-tiered cascade of phosphorylation-dephosphorylation cycles. An input to the pathway can be provided by a cell surface receptor; its output is the activation level of MAPK, a kinase at the bottom of the cascade. MAPK is activated when it is phosphorylated by a MAPK kinase; this process is reversed by a MAPK phosphatase. Active MAPK controls cellular processes by phosphorylating its substrates. According to the current models, the dynamics of the MAPK cascade can be understood independently of MAPK substrates. This unidirectional view of MAPK signaling is consistent with a large body of work, but the reality is more complex: The enzymes that regulate MAPK and the substrates phosphorylated by MAPK have the potential to interact with the same domains on the MAPK protein. Thus, MAPK substrates can compete with each other, as well as with the MAPK regulators for binding to MAPK
From long-term gradients to local cell shape changes how the Drosophila embryo controls its morphogenesis( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(Producer) Reviews what is known about gradients and cell determinants in Drosophila and focuses on current studies that investigate the cell biological mechanisms that use those gradients to the subsequent changes in cell morphology
