Live Imaging of Myogenesis in Indirect Flight Muscles in Drosophila
Author:  Dagan Segal, date: 07/05/2017, view: 6753, Q&A: 0
The indirect flight muscles (IFMs) are the largest muscles in the fly, making up the bulk of the adult thorax. IFMs in Drosophila are generated during pupariation by fusion of hundreds of muscle precursor cells (myoblasts) with larval ...
