Loss of the Drosophilam AAA mitochondrial protease paraplegin results in mitochondrial dysfunction, shortened lifespan, and neuronal and muscular degeneration

PMCID: 5833341
PMID: 29467464
DOI: 10.1038/s41419-018-0365-8

[…] ene, CG2658, encodes a previously uncharacterized homolog of human paraplegin with 58% identity and 75% similarity at the protein level (Supplementary Figure ). Data from the Drosophila modENCODE and FlyAtlas data repositories indicate that the CG2658 gene is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues throughout development. The Pfam motif prediction algorithm predicts that the polypeptide encoded by C […]


Position Matters: Network Centrality Considerably Impacts Rates of Protein Evolution in the Human Protein–Protein Interaction Network

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5570066
PMID: 28854629

[…] HumanAtlas database (). For each human gene, mRNA abundance was estimated as the average across the 32 tissues. Messenger RNA abundance data for D. melanogaster and C. elegans were obtained from the FlyAtlas database (whole adult fly; ) and the EBI Expression Atlas (accession number E-MTAB-2812; ), respectively. S. cerevisiae gene expression data was obtained from .Messenger RNA expression breadt […]


Drosophila melanogaster positive transcriptional elongation factors regulate metabolic and sex biased expression in adults

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5436443
PMID: 28521739
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3755-x

[…] . We used visual examination to remove clusters driven by differences between the two sham genotypes and clusters that showed weak differential expression, or responded even without induction.We used FlyAtlas [] microarray expression data to infer where differentially expressed genes were expressed in our experiments. We converted microarray Oligo IDs to FlyBase [] gene IDs using DAVID (v6.7) []. […]


Intrinsic protein disorder reduces small scale gene duplicability

PMCID: 5737077
PMID: 28430886
DOI: 10.1093/dnares/dsx015

[…] d the expression level values across all 32 tissues and used the mean values in further analyses. For D. melanogaster and C. elegans, we obtained the mRNA abundance data for the whole adult body from FlyAtlas and modENCODE (data from the EBI Expression Atlas, accession number E-MTAB-2812), respectively. S. cerevisiae gene expression data were obtained from Nagalakshmi et al. In the case of A. thal […]


A fat derived metabolite regulates a peptidergic feeding circuit in Drosophila

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5369665
PMID: 28350856
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2000532

[…] the miRNAs themselves but to direct a follow-up screen using gene-specific RNAi. We thus compiled a list of potential miR-iab-4 targets using the online prediction algorithm TargetScan []. Using the FlyAtlas tissue-specific expression data [] available on FlyBase, we limited this list of potential miR-iab-4 targets to those expressed in the adult fat body. In a small secondary screen using gene-s […]


Decay of Sexual Trait Genes in an Asexual Parasitoid Wasp

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5381511
PMID: 28172869
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evw273

[…] d in one of the tissues related to sexual functions. This expression enrichment was determined by identifying the top blastp hit among N. vitripennis and D. melanogaster genes in the Waspatlas () and Flyatlas () databases, respectively. Expression data was available for testes in N. vitripennis and testes, accessory glands and spermathecae in D. melanogaster. We attempted to predict whether the va […]
