A Distalless responsive enhancer of the Hox gene Sex combs reduced is required for segment and sex specific sensory organ development in Drosophila

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5909922
PMID: 29634724
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007320

[…] igated into AscI and StuI sites of pGX-2attp_WN vector []. Subsequently the 5'-homology arm was ligated into pGX-2attp_WN vector containing the 3'-homology arm. sgRNA were designed using as described [] and cloned into the U6b-sgRNA-short vector as previously described []. sgRNA primer sequences are listed in . Transgenic flies were generated by […]


Drosophila Gr64e mediates fatty acid sensing via the phospholipase C pathway

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5821400
PMID: 29420533
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007229

[…] to generate Gr64af flies []. We selected two target sites for deletion of the whole Gr64 cluster using DRSC Find CRISPRs ( and CRISPR optimal target finder ( one near the 5’ end of Gr64a (GAATCCTCAACAAACTTCGGTGG, the Protospacer Adjacent Motif is underlined) and one near the 3’ end of Gr64f (GGTCGTTGTCCTCATGAAATTGG) […]


highroad Is a Carboxypetidase Induced by Retinoids to Clear Mutant Rhodopsin 1 in Drosophila Retinitis Pigmentosa Models

Cell Rep
PMCID: 5832065
PMID: 29425495
DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2018.01.032

[…] iated cassette exchange (RMCE) following a published protocol (; further details in ).To generate hiro deletion mutants, we followed the homology-directed repair CRISPR-Cas9 protocol described in (further details in ). The deletion of hiro was further confirmed through genomic PCR. This hiroF1 allele was recombined with ninaEG69D to generate hiroF1, ninaEG69D/TM6B, wh […]


Chaski, a novel Drosophila lactate/pyruvate transporter required in glia cells for survival under nutritional stress

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5775259
PMID: 29352169
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19595-5

[…] 545 stock from Kyoto Stock Center). CRISPR mutant was generated following the method of genetically encoding the gRNAs. We designed two gRNAs using the CRISPR optimal target finder tool ( Both gRNAs sequences are close to the ATG. A BamH1 restriction site near to the target sequences was used later for selection. Sense and antisense ol […]


An Ichor dependent apical extracellular matrix regulates seamless tube shape and integrity

PLoS Genet

[…] Optimal gRNA target sites in the Drosophila melanogaster genome (release 6) were selected using the default settings of the flyCRISPR Optimal Target Finder web program ( Genomic DNA from a w1118; FRT40A FRTG13 stock (Bloomington Stock Center) was isolated using a Qiagen […]


A population of adult satellite like cells in Drosophila is maintained through a switch in RNA isoforms
