Disease relevance of Houseflies


Psychiatry related information on Houseflies


High impact information on Houseflies

  • Primary structure of a potent endogenous dopa-containing inhibitor of phenol oxidase from Musca domestica [4].
  • An unusual mechanism for hydrocarbon biosynthesis is proposed from work examining the formation of (Z)-9-tricosene (Z9-23:Hy), the major sex pheromone component of the female housefly, Musca domestica [5].
  • Like Ac and Tam3, the hobo element was found to function in a distantly related species, in this case the housefly Musca domestica [6].
  • Isolation and sequence of cDNA encoding a cytochrome P-450 from an insecticide-resistant strain of the house fly, Musca domestica [7].
  • Similar results have been obtained for the Sxl homologue of Musca domestica (Meise, M., Hilfiker-Kleiner, D., Brunner, C., DŁbendorfer, A., N¿thiger, R. and Bopp, D. (1998) Development 125, 1487-1494) [8].
