ArticleVersatility in signalling: multiple responses to EGF receptor activation during Drosophila oogenesisVan Buskirk, Cheryl L.The Drosophila epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is active in different tissues and is involved in diverse processes such as patterning of the embryonic ectoderm, growth and differentiation of imaginal discs and cell survival. During oogenesis, . . .
ArticleThe transmembrane region of Gurken is not required for biological activity, but is necessary for transport to the oocyte membrane in DrosophilaQueenan, Anne MarieDuring Drosophila oogenesis, localization of the transforming growth factor ? (TGF?)-like signaling molecule Gurken to the oocyte membrane is required for polarity establishment of the egg and embryo. To test Gurken domain functions, full-length and t . . .
