Protein Extraction from Drosophila Embryos and Ovaries
Authors:  Pedro Prudêncio and Leonardo G. Guilgur, date: 05/05/2015, view: 18248, Q&A: 0
Here we provide the description of protocols to efficiently obtain protein extracts from embryos and ovaries of Drosophila melanogaster. These protocols are routinely applied in our laboratory and are based on two techniques: either embryos ...
FLP/FRT Induction of Mitotic Recombination in Drosophila Germline
Authors:  Pedro Prudêncio and Leonardo G. Guilgur, date: 05/05/2015, view: 28011, Q&A: 0
The FLP/FRT system is a site-directed recombination technology based on the targeting of a recombination enzyme (flipase - FLP) to specific DNA regions designated as flipase recognition target (FRT) sites. Initially identified in Saccharomyces ...
