High impact information on loco


Biological context of loco


Anatomical context of loco

  • In addition, at least two other factors appear to repress loco expression in the ectoderm and in the CNS midline cells [4].
  • Analysis of newly generated mutants and antisense technology enabled us to establish that disrupting loco in follicle cells results in ventralized eggs, while disrupting loco in nurse cells results in short eggs, due to defective dumping of the nurse cell cytoplasm into the oocyte [5].

Other interactions of loco

  • The expression of loco is initially dependent on gcm [4].
