High impact information on Flo

  • The requirement of Reggie1/Flo2 for Reggie2/Flo1 stabilization is confirmed by misexpression experiments [1].
  • Reggie/Flotillin proteins are upregulated after optic nerve dissection and evolutionary highly conserved components of lipid rafts [1].
  • In the wing imaginal disc, global overexpression of Reggie/Flotillin proteins leads to a significant extension of the Wingless signal and severely disrupts normal wing development [1].
  • Reggie-1 and reggie-2 are two evolutionarily highly conserved proteins which are up-regulated in retinal ganglion cells during regeneration of lesioned axons in the goldfish optic nerve [2].
  • Our current results provide a starting point and systematic basis for dissecting the role of flotillin in caveolae and neuronal development using Drosophila as a genetic system [3].

Other interactions of Flo

  • Caveolins (Cav-1, -2 and -3) and flotillins (FLO-1 and FLO-2 [also known as epidermal surface antigens (ESAs)] are two families of mammalian caveolae-associated integral membrane proteins [3].
