... patterning. We show that changes in the distribution of the TGFα-like ligand Gurken (GRK), a crucial ligand for axis formation, underlies EGFR activation and DR formation in D. willistoni . Furthermore, we demonstrate that GRK from D. willistoni rescues a grk -null D. melanogaster fly and, remarkably...

... demonstrated that female mutants for jvl produce ventralized eggs owing to the defects in the localization and translation of gurken mRNA during mid-oogenesis. Mutations in jvl also affect oskar and bicoid mRNA localization. Analysis of cytoskeleton organization in the mutants reveal defects in both MT...

... in cells producing the TGFα-like ligand Gurken,but not in EGFR-expressing cells. Strikingly, we find that GSLs are not essential for Gurken trafficking and secretion. However, we characterize for the first time the extracellular Gurken gradient and show that GSLs affect its formation by controlling Gurken...

Moreover, in the absence of Drab6, osk mRNA localization and the organization of microtubule plus-ends at the posterior of the oocyte were both severely affected. Our results point to a possible...

Shravage; Gabriela Altmann; Martin Technau; Siegfried Roth The Drosophila eggshell is patterned by the combined action of the epidermal growth factor [EGF; Gurken (Grk)] and transforming growth factorβ [TGF-β; Decapentaplegic (Dpp)] signaling cascades.

..., and found that the gene is essential for viability. During oogenesis, ik2 is required in an NF-κB-independent process that is essential for the localization of oskar and gurken mRNAs; as a result, females that lack ik2 in the germline produce embryos that are both bicaudal and ventralized. The abnormal RNA...

... similar to a vas null mutation. Accumulation of Gurken (Grk) protein is greatly reduced when Vas-eIF5B interaction is reduced, suggesting that this interaction is crucial for translational regulation of grk . In addition, we show that reduction in Vas-eIF5B interaction virtually abolishes germ cell...

Anterior-posterior polarity originates when the oocyte then comes to lie posterior to the nurse cells and signals through the Gurken/Egfr pathway to induce the adjacent follicle cells to adopt a posterior fate. This directs the movement...
