Wing blisters as model for tissue morphogenesis--in vivo RNAi study
Bilousov O, Koval A, Keshelava A, Katanaev VL. Identification of novel elements of the Drosophila blisterome sheds light on potential pathological mechanisms of several human diseases. PLoS One. 2014 Jun 26;9(6):e101133. PMID: 24968325; PMCID: PMC4072764. From the abstract: "... Here we focused on Drosophila wing tissue morphogenesis, a fairly complex developmental program ... By means of RNAi-silencing technique and the blister phenotype as readout, we identify numerous novel proteins potentially involved in wing sheet adhesion ..."
