Identification of genes involved in germ cell programmed cell death in Drosophila melanogaster
Is Version Of
Two central abilities of a metastatic cell are the ability to become migratory and the ability to overcome cell death signals. The knowledge gained from being able to study these two processes in vivo is essential to being able to develop new cancer therapies. Here I describe the identification of genes that are involved in p53 and outsiders mediated germ cell death.
