    • Identification of genes influencing dendrite morphogenesis in developing peripheral sensory and central motor neurons 

      Ou, Yimiao; Chwalla, Barbara; Landgraf, Matthias; van Meyel, Don (2008-07-10)
      Abstract Background Developing neurons form dendritic trees with cell type-specific patterns of growth, branching and targeting. Dendrites of Drosophila peripheral sensory neurons have emerged as a premier genetic model, ...
    • Metamorphosis of an identified serotonergic neuron in the Drosophila olfactory system 

      Roy, Bidisha; Singh, Ajeet P; Shetty, Chetak; Chaudhary, Varun; North, Annemarie; Landgraf, Matthias; Vijay Raghavan, K et al. (2007-10-24)
      Abstract Background Odors are detected by sensory neurons that carry information to the olfactory lobe where they connect to projection neurons and local interneurons in glomeruli: anatomically well-characterized structures ...
    • Plug-and-Play Genetic Access to Drosophila Cell Types Using Exchangeable Exon Cassettes 

      Diao, Fengqiu; Ironfield, Holly; Luan, Haojiang; Diao, Feici; Shropshire, William C.; Ewer, John; Marr, Elizabeth et al. (Elsevier, 2015-02-26)
      Genetically encoded effectors are important tools for probing cellular function in living animals, but improved methods for directing their expression to specific cell types are required. Here, we introduce a simple, ...
    • Prion-induced neurotoxicity: Possible role for cell cycle activity and DNA damage response 

      Bujdoso, Raymond; Landgraf, Matthias; Jackson, Walker S.; Thackray, Alana M. (Baishideng Publishing Group, 2015-08-12)
      Protein misfolding neurodegenerative diseases arise through neurotoxicity induced by aggregation of host proteins. These conditions include Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, motor neuron disease, ...
    • Selective inhibition mediates the sequential recruitment of motor pools 

      Zwart, Maarten F.; Pulver, Stefan R.; Truman, James W.; Fushiki, Akira; Cardona, Albert; Landgraf, Matthias (Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-07-14)
      Locomotor systems generate diverse motor patterns to produce the movements underlying behavior, requiring that motor neurons be recruited at various phases of the locomotor cycle. Reciprocal inhibition produces alternating ...
