TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Analysis of transcriptional activity mediated by Drosophila melanogaster ecdysone receptor isoforms in a heterologous cell culture system 2006 308 Ecdysteroid regulation of gene transcription in Drosophila melanogaster and other insects is mediated by a heterodimer comprised of Ultraspiracle (USP) and one of three ecdysone receptor (EcR) isoforms (A, B1 and B2). This study revealed that ...
Functional analysis of a <italic>Drosophila/Chironomous</italic> ultraspiracle chimera to examine the role of USP in ecdysteroid-inducible gene expression. 2009 764 The molting hormone, 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E), orchestrates Drosophila development through the actions of the ecdysteroid receptor, which is a heterodimer of two members of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily, EcR and Ultraspiracle (USP). The Ec...
The N-terminus of ecdysteroid receptor isoforms and ultraspiracle interacts with different ecdysteroid response elements in a sequence specific manner to modulate transcriptional activity 2011 224 The functional insect ecdysteroid receptor is comprised of two nuclear receptors, the ecdysteroid receptor (EcR) and the RXR homologue, ultraspiracle (USP), which form a heterodimer. The dimer recognizes various hormone response elements and the effe...
