Role of Rab5 in synaptic vesicle recycling
During synaptic transmission, NT-filled synaptic vesicles are released by Ca2+-triggered exocytosis at the active zone. Following exocytosis, SV membrane is immediately re-internalized and synaptic vesicles (SVs) are regenerated by a local recycling mechanism within the presynaptic terminal. It is debated whether an endosomal compartment is involved in this recycling process. In contrast, it is well known from cultured mammalian cells, that endocytic vesicles fuse to the early sorting endosome. The early endosome is ...
Functional genomics of the Drosophila melanogaster X chromosome and the role of DWnt5 during development
The collection of X chromosome insertions (PX) lethal lines, which was isolated from a screen for essential genes on the X chromosome, was characterized by means of cloning the insertion sites, mapping the sites within genomic DNA and determination of the associated reporter gene expresssion patterns. The established STS flanking the P element insertion sites were submitted to EMBL nucleotide databases and their in situ data together with the enhancer trap expression patterns have been deposited in the FlyView database. ...
