    Topology-driven protein-protein interaction network analysis detects genetic sub-networks regulating reproductive capacity

    Tarun Kumar et al.
    Regulatory networks of genes controlling different aspects of insect reproduction have been identified by a systems-level analysis of quantitative phenotypic information obtained from the loss of individual cell signaling genes.

    The follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary is maintained by a small number of stem cells

    Jocelyne Fadiga, Todd G Nystul
    Just 2-4 follicle stem cells maintain each follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary, and they reside within a single ring at the anterior edge of the tissue.

    Dopamine drives Drosophila sechellia adaptation to its toxic host

    Sofía Lavista-Llanos et al.
    The insect dopaminergic system serves an important function in the regulation of ontogenesis and early development, contributing to the evolutionary processes that limit the ecological niche of Drosophila sechellia.

    Female-biased upregulation of insulin pathway activity mediates the sex difference in Drosophila body size plasticity

    Jason W Millington et al.
    The ability to adjust body size in response to diet is greater in Drosophila females than males because of a sex difference in the nutrient-dependent regulation of the insulin pathway.

    The evolution of non-reproductive workers in insect colonies with haplodiploid genetics

    Jason W Olejarz et al.
    A mathematical model predicts the precise conditions for natural selection to favor the evolution of non-reproductive workers in insect colonies with haplodiploid genetics.

    Vilya, a component of the recombination nodule, is required for meiotic double-strand break formation in Drosophila

    Cathleen M Lake et al.
    The Zip3-like protein Vilya links the initiation of meiotic recombination with crossover formation.

    Opposing JAK-STAT and Wnt signaling gradients define a stem cell domain by regulating differentiation at two borders

    David Melamed, Daniel Kalderon
    Graded Wnt and JAK-STAT signals regulate the division rate, AP location and differentiation of Drosophila ovarian follicle stem cells to define a domain of stem cells maintained by population asymmetry.

    Prolonged ovarian storage of mature Drosophila oocytes dramatically increases meiotic spindle instability

    Ethan J Greenblatt et al.
    Meiotic chromosome segregation in mature Drosophila oocytes is sensitive to prolonged quiescence, suggesting that human oocyte instability may result from storage of mature rather than primordial oocytes and be modifiable.

    Jak-Stat pathway induces Drosophila follicle elongation by a gradient of apical contractility

    Hervé Alégot et al.
    A morphogen gradient can trigger tissue elongation via a control of apical cell pulsing and without a planar cell polarity requirement.

    Channel nuclear pore complex subunits are required for transposon silencing in Drosophila

    Marzia Munafò et al.
    By linking export and licensing of a piRNA precursor transcript, channel nuclear pore complex subunits Nup54 and Nup58 are specifically required to silence transposons in the Drosophila ovary.
