Regulation of vitellogenesis in Drosophila


, : Regulation of vitellogenesis in Drosophila. International Journal of Insect Morphology & Embryology 22(2-4): 349-367

During vitellogenesis the 3 major yolk proteins of Drosophila are synthesized and transported from the tissues which produce them to the oocyte. Here they are endocytosed by the oocyte and stored in yolk granules for utilization during embryogenesis. In this paper the regulation of vitellogenesis is discussed, including the tissue-specific and hormonal regulation of the yolk protein genes; transport of yolk proteins to the oocyte; storage of the proteins; and their possible functions during embryogenesis.
