Folliculogenesis and oogenesis are important events preceding the release of the mature oocyte (ovulation), as well as for in vitro oocyte maturation, which is. Drosophila oogenesis is an excellent system for the study of developmental cell biology. Active areas of research include stem cell. Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis. Pgs. (Campbell). Spermatogenesis. Production of sperm. Continuous and prolific; Each ejaculation.

Primordial germ cells form early in embryonic development and are oobenesis first embryonic cells to undergo cellularization. BMP signaling dynamics in the follicle cells of multiple Drosophila species. Female sterile mutations on the second chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster. We thank Peter McLean for contributions to Figure 1and members of the Cooley lab for comments on the manuscript. Curr Opin Genet Dev. Neuromuscular organization jurnall aminergic oogenesid of contractions in the Drosophila ovary.

Epigenetic stability increases extensively during Drosophila follicle stem cell differentiation. Drosophila Kelch regulates actin organization via Srcdependent tyrosine phosphorylation. Protein equilibration through somatic ring canals in Drosophila. Fixation with methanol has several drawbacks, however, as it prevents F-actin labeling with phalloidin, and in many cases Methanol reduces or eliminates signal from fluorescent proteins.

Methods for studying oogenesis

Temporal complexity within a translational control element in the nanos mRNA. Clonal expansion of ovarian germline stem cells during niche formation in Drosophila. Curr Protoc Stem Cell Biol. Transgenes carrying FRT sequences have been recovered in centrosome-proximal positions on all five chromosome arms, enabling efficient mitotic recombination schemes to generate homozygous mutant clones for essentially all Drosophila genes [ 6162 ].


Rubin lab vectors are oogeenesis on their website and are available at Addgene. Integration of contractile forces during tissue invagination.

The kurnal of egg chambers also called follicles takes place during the first four days of oogenesis in the germarium. Developmental genetics of the Drosophila egg.

As mentioned in Section 1. Newly available shRNA transgenic lines provide an alternative to classic loss-of-function F2 screens and clonal screens. Characterization and relationship of Dpp receptors encoded by the saxophone and thick veins genes in Drosophila.

UASp vectors are included in the T. Introduction Oogenesis in Drosophila [ 12 ] supports an impressively high level of fecundity. RNA interference RNAi in Drosophila has become an immensely powerful tool, and at least three genomic-scale projects have been undertaken with the goal of establishing transgenic RNAi lines for essentially all Drosophila genes [ 7677 ] and RNAi FLYunpublished available lines are listed at the following sites: The nanos nos or vasa vas promoter directs expression in primordial germ cells in developing animals, and in the germline cells of the adult germarium.

Follicle cells also make crucial contributions to previtellogenic oogenesis. Screens using elegant versions of this approach identified several genes involved in oocyte specification and development in [ 66 — 68 ].

Fluorescent BrdU labeling and nuclear flow sorting of the Drosophila ovary. In formaldehyde fixed tissue, these bundles have oogdnesis striated appearance, but jurnxl striations are not observed in live tissue when the bundles are labeled with fluorescent protein fusions [ 29 ].

Development of Drosophila melanogaster. Selection of appropriate imaging equipment and methodology for live cell imaging in Drosophila.


Methods for studying oogenesis

Low to moderate levels throughout oogenesis; may taper in later stages. Thus, the germarium contains two types of stem cells maintained in separate niches whose division rates must be coordinated to produce cells necessary for egg chamber production.

Isolation and characterization of sex-linked female-sterile mutants in Drosophila melanogaster. The dynamics of fluorescently labeled endogenous gurken mRNA jurnall Drosophila. Drosophila filamin encoded by the cheerio locus is a component of ovarian ring canals.

Rotation and asymmetry of the mitotic spindle direct asymmetric cell division in the developing central nervous system. While female-sterile screens succeeded in isolating many genes that are critical for female fertility, the majority of genes that function in oogenesis are essential genes for which loss of function mutations do not produce a female-sterile phenotype.

Alternatively, microtubules can be visualized using a transgene that expresses a fluorescent protein fused to either tubulin or a microtubule binding protein Table 4. Drosophila chorion gene amplification requires an upstream region regulating s18 transcription.

After completing mitosis, escort cells are exchanged for follicle cells to complete stage 1 egg chamber assembly. Acknowledgments We thank Peter McLean for contributions to Figure 1and members of the Cooley lab for comments on the manuscript.
