The glial cell undergoes apoptosis in the microchaete lineage of Drosophila
Apoptosis plays a major role in vertebrate and invertebrate development. The adult Drosophila thoracic microchaete is a mechanosensory organ whose development has been extensively studied as a model of how cell division and cell determination intermingle. This sensory organ arises from a cell lineage that produces a glial cell and four other cells that form the organ. In this study, using an in vivo approach as well as fixed material, we show that the glial cell undergoes nucleus fragmentationdoi:10.1242/dev.00198 pmid:12441297 fatcat:ol3zhltdfbg6vji5kxgic5crou
