The conditional growth suppressor E7.25d.7 is an allele of the sterile-20 kinase misshapen.

Evan Kiely, Melissa Gilbert-Ross,

The notion of a two-hit or multi-hit model of carcinogenesis dates to at least the 1970's and work done by Alfred Knudson. This concept was considered in the design and execution of a previous FLP/FRT screen in <i>Drosophila melanogaster</i> for conditional growth suppressors. During the course of this work, the ...

Differential effects on neuromuscular physiology between Sod1 loss-of-function mutation and paraquat-induced oxidative stress in Drosophila.

Atsushi Ueda, Atulya Iyengar, Chun-Fang Wu,

Oxidative stress is thought to be a major contributor to aging processes. Here, we report differential effects on neurotransmission caused by loss-of-function mutations of <i>Superoxide dismutase 1</i> (<i>Sod1</i>) and by paraquat (PQ) feeding in <i>Drosophila</i>. We demonstrated alterations in <i>Sod1</i> mutants; the larval neuromuscular junction displayed supernumerary discharges and the ... Read more >>

Single-pass, double-pass and acid twin-screw extrusion-cooking impact physicochemical and nutrition-related properties of wheat bran

Chiara Roye, Hélène Chanvrier, Muriel Henrion, Karlien De Roeck, Yamina De Bondt, Inge Liberloo, Roberto King, Christophe M Courtin,

The potential of extrusion-cooking as a technique to change the physicochemical characteristics of wheat bran, and thereby its nutrition-related properties was investigated. It was investigated whether double-pass extrusion-cooking or the addition of citric acid had a larger effect than single-pass extrusion-cooking alone. Double-pass extrusion-cooking resulted in the highest strong water-binding ... Read more >>
