fruit flies

  • Biologists find a unique version of a filament-forming protein in human cells that insects lack

  • Craig Montell finds that fruit fly gustatory receptors that sense a noxious compound is a cation channel

  • Crossing the catwalk one after the other, the wild-type fruit and TRPy mutants show distinct differences in footfalls

    Study finds that a mutation in fruit flies impairs fine motor control but leaves gross motor proficiency intact

  • E-cadherin in collective direction-sensing in vivo

    Researchers in Denise Montell’s lab used fruit-fly ovaries to uncover how E-cadherin guides collective cell migration

  • A new study demonstrate how taste preferences can be modified by long-term exposure to a specific diet. The results suggest a general neural mechanism underlying food experience-induced changes in taste preferences.

  • A study of the mechanisms underlying salt taste coding of Drosophila (fruit flies) supports the concept that opposing behavioral responses to low and high salt are determined largely by competition between two newly identified types of salt-...

  • New research has determined how stem cells produce different types of "daughter" cells in Drosophila (fruit flies) by studying the ovaries of fruit flies in order to see stem cells in their natural environment. Scientists were able to shed light...
