Oo-site: A dashboard to visualize gene expression during Drosophila oogenesis suggests meiotic entry is regulated post-transcriptionally
Summary: We created a dashboard to visualize gene expression in the Drosophila germarium and discovered that meiotic entry is regulated at the level of translation.
METHODS & TECHNIQUES
Antibodies targeting the European lobster (Palinurus elephas) vitellogenin developed by mRNA isolation and in-silico-designed antigenic peptides
Summary: The development of anti-vitellogenin antibodies of Palinurus elephas could be applied to building a non-invasive reading system for monitoring the reproductive status of these crustaceans and as a useful tool for controlling the quality of their aquatic environment.
