Mechanisms of gene activation and gene silencing as well as aspects of transcriptional regulation using Drosophila melanogaster.
Research in my lab concerns four aspects of transcriptional regulation: histone biotinylation and gene expression; transcriptional activation and chromatin remodeling; RNA polymerase elongation factors and gene regulation; and heterochromatin and gene regulation. We use the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as a model to study mechanisms of gene activation and gene silencing.
The lysosomal enzyme receptor protein (LERP) is not essential, but is implicated in
lysosomal function in Drosophila melanogaster
