The Drosophila Host Defense: A Model for the Study on Innate Immunity In recent years a remarkable evolutionary conservation of innate immune mechanisms has become apparent between flies, plants, mice and humans. Each of these species uses similar receptors to detect microbes. Therapeutic targeting of toll-like receptors for infectious and inflammatory disease and cancer and crop engineering of these receptors for resistance to infection is now a reality. [Show ID: 23508]

Early Development in Drosophila A quick overview on early development in Drosophila: axis patterning, segmentation, and segment identity and examples of specific genes in each of these stages.
Altitude control in Drosophila Flying animals need to control their altitude as well as their horizontal movement. Although much is known about the visual reflexes that regulate horizontal motion, little is known about the sensory-motor mechanisms used for altitude control. As described in this video abstract, Dickinson and colleagues used a 3D virtual reality environment to study Drosophila flight and found that flies use lateral visual cues to regulate altitude, not changes in the speed of ground motion as previously thought.
Model Organisms - Drosophila - Charalambos Kyriacou (Full Interview) Charalambos ("Bambos") Kyriacou is Professor of Behavioural Genetics at the University of Leicester, UK. His research for a number of years has principally focussed on circadian rhythms (biorhythms) in a variety of organisms, but especially the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. His research group also study aggression and mating behaviour. He also collaborates with Dr Flaviano Giorgini in the Genetics Department in research using fly models to study Huntington's Disease. This is the full interview in which Prof Kyriacou introduces us to the value of Drosophila as a model organism and explains about the importance of biorhythms, including their relevance to human health. This film is part of a collection of resources on the use of model organisms in medical research produced by Dr Chris Willmott and Professor Andrew Fry of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Leicester. Funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and the GENIE Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, these videos show how the use of invertebrate species such as yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) can be applicable to human medicine.

Drosophila Courtship Song - Genetics - University of Leicester The courtship behavior of Fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster). This film was made for the University of Leicester open day to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Charles Darwins birth. It shows an example of ***ual selection; a special case of natural selection. The film was produced by the Department of Genetics at the University of Leicester. For further information about genetics at Leicester see; and for further information about behavior in fruit flies see;
Drosophila gastrulation A three hours hold fruit fly embryo is imaged laterally via fluorescence microscopy for 30 minutes. Myosin is tagged with GFP. This process, called gastrulation, serves in most higher organisms (including humans) for the formation of the three body layers: epi-, meso- and endoderm. To learn more, watch this video:
Fruit fly (drosophila melanogaster) courtship Male fruit flies go through a behavioral progression when courting females that includes: orienting towards the female, following/chasing her, wing vibrations (courtship song), licking her genitalia, attempting copulation, and copulation. The first pair here shows the male quickly progressing through the later stages of courtship. The second couple goes through the progression several times, until finally copulating. Feel free to use this in seminars, classes, etc.
Spotted Wing Drosophila, a New Invasive Pest in Washington State MOUNT VERNON, Wash.— In the berry fields of Washington State, a small fly has made its way from California, and is now causing headaches particularly in Washington State for small fruit growers. The Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura), or SWD, infests soft fruits with its eggs, ruining the fruit's market value. Named after the spots on their wings, the spotted wing drosophila was first discovered in Puyallup in strawberries. Since then, scientists at Washington State University have been working to provide farmers with methods to protect their crops from damage, while trying to understand the life cycle of SWD.

bicoid bcd mRNA gradient formation in Drosophila WATCH THIS VIDEO IN 720 p HD! See also: Formation of the bicoid morphogen gradient: an mRNA gradient dictates the protein gradient. Development 136, 605-614 (2009). The Bicoid (Bcd) protein gradient is generally believed to be established in pre-blastoderm Drosophila embryos by the diffusion of Bcd protein after translation of maternal mRNA, which serves as a strictly localized source of Bcd at the anterior pole. However, previous reports showed that the Bcd gradient is preceded by a bcd mRNA gradient. These early observations were revisited and extended. The results demonstrate that the bcd mRNA and Bcd protein gradient profiles are virtually identical at all times. This confirms the previous conclusion that the Bcd gradient is produced by a bcd mRNA gradient rather than by diffusion. Based on the observation that bcd mRNA colocalizes with Staufen (Stau), it is proposed that the bcd mRNA gradient forms by a novel mechanism involving quasi-random active transport of a Stau-bcd mRNA complex through a nonpolar microtubular network, which confines the bcd mRNA to the cortex of the embryo.

WaveFX - Drosophila Embryo - 63x Quorum's WaveFX confocal system is a laser based system using an optimized Nipkow Spinning technology capable of acquiring confocal images at video rates. This innovative technology significantly reduces photobleaching and photo-toxicity which makes it ideal for studying live cell activity in an undisturbed environment. The increased performance of the system is a result of the several optical modifications unique to Quorum Technologies. This video shows the development of a Drosophila (fruit fly) embryo at high magnification over a 1.5 hour time frame. The fluorescence signal is due to a Histone tagged GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein) construct, and mutiple cell divisions can be seen to occur in unison over the 1+ hour timeframe covered in this video.
