Function of the ATP-dependent chromatin remodeler Mi-2 in the regulation of ecdysone dependent genes in Drosophila melanogaster

The development of the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster is regulated by the steroid hormone ecdysone. Ecdysone is released at the onset of metamorphosis and initiates a cascade of transcriptional events. First, it leads to the heterodimerisation of the Ecdysone receptor (EcR) with its binding partne...
