Myosin heavy chain like (Mhcl) agiert während der Embryonalentwicklung und Myogenese von Drosophila melanogaster in Redundanz zu Zipper, die Funktion des C2-Domänen-Proteins CG10737-P während der Muskelentwicklung bleibt unklar

Das unkonventionelle Myosin Mhcl wurde als potenzieller Interaktionspartner von Rols7 identifiziert, welches essentiell für die Myogenese von Drosophila melanogaster ist. Die Mhcl-mRNA ist zwischen Stadium 10 und 14 spezifisch im somatischen und viszeralen Mesoderm nachweisbar (Bonn, Diplomarbeit 20...
