The recipe for making a fruit fly

Scientists use mass spectrometry to determine the absolute copy number of nuclear proteins and histone marks

21-Oct-2019

Currently, most if not all of the proteins that are required for constructing a multicellular organism are known. However, it is largely unclear how many copies of each protein species are present and needed to permit an animal to develop into a complete organism. Researchers at the Max Planck ...

How neural circuits drive hungry individuals to peak performance

30-Sep-2019

Success is no accident: To reach your goal you need perseverance. But where does the motivation come from? An international team of researchers led by scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now identified the neural circuit in the brain of fruit flies which makes them ...

Speed limit on DNA-making sets pace for life's first steps

15-Mar-2019

Fruit flies make for stingy mothers, imparting only a portion of the genetic building blocks their offspring need to survive. The rest must be produced by the fertilized egg in its first few steps of growth. Scientists puzzled for two decades over this seemingly unnecessary withholding. Now ...

Coconut oil prolongs life in peroxisomal disorders

22-Jun-2018

“Lorenzo's Oil” was to help a seriously ill boy suffering from a peroxisomal disorder (adrenoleukodystrophy/ALD). The true story was turned into a film which made the rare disease well known. Scientists from the University of Bonn, the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the German ...

Active genetics technology opens new horizons

08-Feb-2018

In 2015, University of California San Diego biologists Ethan Bier and Valentino Gantz developed a breakthrough technology known as "active genetics," which results in parents transmitting a genetic trait to most of their offspring (instead of 50 percent receiving the trait under standard ...

Organic cation transporter CarT crucial for Drosophila vision

02-Mar-2016

Scientists at UMass Medical School have identified a cell membrane transporter--CarT--that maintains vision in the fruit fly Drosophila by recycling the neurotransmitter histamine in the brain. In mammals, histamine maintains wakefulness and regulates cognitive functions and food intake. ...
