The Effect on Transcriptional Activity of Mutations that Alter Possible Phosphorylation Sites in Drosophila melanogaster Ultraspiracle (USP) 2007 435 During insect development, steroid hormones interact with two members of the nuclear receptor superfamily, ecdysone receptor (EcR) and Ultraspiracle (USP) to bring about cellular changes. To determine the functional properties of mutations of serine ...
Functional analysis of a Drosophila/Chironomous ultraspiracle chimera to examine the role of USP in ecdysteroid-inducible gene expression. 2009 760 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...
