Drosophila development: RNA interference ab ovo

Item Type:Editorial
Title:Drosophila development: RNA interference ab ovo
Creators Name:Chekulaeva, M. and Ephrussi, A.
Abstract:A novel protein required for RNA interference in Drosophila, Armitage, was identified in a screen for genes involved in embryonic axis formation. In armitage mutants, oocyte polarity and the regulation of oskar mRNA translation are impaired, suggesting that RNA silencing regulates the first steps of Drosophila development.
