We have shown that the PIWI protein Aubergine (Aub) plays a role in the stability of maternal mRNAs in the embryo: it is involved in both the decay[...]
Projets MARTINE SIMONELIG
We are using Drosophila germline stem cells (GSCs), an outstanding model to study stem cells in vivo.
We have demonstrated[...]
TO EXPLORE THE MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF OCULOPHARYNGEAL MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY (OPMD) USING THE DROSOPHILA MODEL
We are addressing the role of small RNAs and ribosomal RNAs in OPMD, as well as the role of cellular stresses.
We are also using our Drosophila OPMD[...]
