    • 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 Maureen (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, ...
    • Regulation of neuronal development and function by ROS. 

      Oswald, Matthew Charles; Garnham, Nathan; Sweeney, Sean T; Landgraf, Matthias (2018-03)
      Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have long been studied as destructive agents in the context of nervous system ageing, disease and degeneration. Their roles as signalling molecules under normal physiological conditions is ...
    • 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 ...
