Middleton, Adam C and Nongthomba, Upendra and Parry, Katherine and Sweeney, Sean T and Sparrow, John C and Elliot, Christopher JH (2006) Neuromuscular organization and aminergic modulation of contractions in the Drosophila ovary. In: BMC Biology, 4 (17). pp. 1-14.
The processes by which eggs develop in the insect ovary are well characterized. Despite a large number of Drosophila mutants that cannot lay eggs, the way that the egg is moved along the reproductive tract from ovary to uterus is less well understood. We remedy this with an integrative study on the reproductive tract muscles (anatomy,innervation, contractions, aminergic modulation) in female flies.
