Description

Currently Drosophila is a dominant experimental model in developmental biology and in gene regulation in eukaryotes. This volume summarizes some thirty years of experience in the handling of in vitro cultured Drosophila cells. Its main emphasis is on gene transfer methodology, cell responses to heat shock, hormonal regulation of genes, and on the expression and mobility of transposable elements.

Key Features

  • Some thirty years of experience in handling in vitro cultured Drosophila cells
  • Cell cultures which provide material for a multiplicity of biochemical approaches
  • DNA-mediated gene transfer as an irreplaceable tool for analyzing basic mechanisms of regulation
  • Drosophila cell lines which qualify them for use in biotechnology

Reviews

"Beginners with basic training in handling cultured cells will find the book a useful introduction to the art of culturing Drosophila cells. It is also the definitive reference work on Drosophila cell culture.... May the book inspire many scientists to establish new cell lines, and so help to bridge the gap between vertebrate biochemistry and Drosophila genetics." --NATURE
