Abstract

Genetic approaches have been used to investigate increasingly complex biological systems. Here we review the current state of genetic analysis of learning and memory in the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster. Emerging findings support two main themes.

Phosphorylation

Phosphorylation is the attachment of a phosphoryl group, which is often provided by ATP, to a protein by a specific type of enzyme called kinase. Discover the latest research on phosphorylation here.

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

Signal Transduction & Control of Gene Expression

Expression of genes are thought to be involved in signaling pathways, which are important for cell growth, metabolism, apoptosis and more. It is thought that gene expression plays a part in the signaling pathways that implicates the biological effects of the cell. Here is the latest research on signal transduction and the control of gene expression.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

Molecular Organization of Synapses

This feed focuses on the molecular organization of synapses between two nerve cells, synaptic signal transduction, and synaptic vesicles. Here is the latest research on organization of synapses.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.

DNA Replication Origin

DNA replication is initiated as specific gene sequences, called origins, that function to start DNA replication. Pre-replication complexes are assembled at these origins during the G1 phase of the cell cycle. These sequences allow for targeted activation or deactivation of replication. Discover the latest research on DNA replication origins here.

This feed focuses on the use of proteomic and proteogenomic approaches in neurobiology and neurobiological disorders. Here is the latest research.

Phosphoproteomics

Phosphoproteomics refers to the identification and quantification of phosphorylated proteins in the proteome. This approach provides a high-throughput method of examining the state of intracellular phosphorylation. Here is the latest research on phosphoproteomics.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Enhancers & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Enhancers are short regions of the DNA which can be bound by activator or repressor proteins to affect transcription of a particular gene. This feed focuses on the role of enhancers in regulation of cell-type specific gene expression during development.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.
