    The delta family of ionotropic glutamate receptors consists of glutamate d1 (GluD1) and glutamate d2 (GluD2) receptors. While the role of GluD2 in the regulation of cerebellar physiology is well understood, the function of GluD1 in the central nervous system remains elusive. We demonstrate for...

    The centromere-specific histone H3 variant CENP-A plays a crucial role in kinetochore specification and assembly. We chose a genetic approach to identify interactors of the Drosophila CENP-A homolog CID. Overexpression ofcidin the proliferating eye imaginal disk results in a rough eye phenotype,...

    Drosophila nemo (nmo) is the founding member of the Nemo-like kinase (NIk) family of serine-threonine kinases. Previous work has characterized nmo's role in planar cell polarity during ommatidial patterning. Here we examine an earlier role for nmo in eye formation through interactions with the...

    Microtubules are dynamic structures that must elongate, disassemble, and be cleaved into smaller pieces for proper neuronal development and function. The AAA ATPase Spastin severs microtubules along their lengths and is thought to regulate the balance between long, stable filaments and shorter...
