Regeneration of Drosophila wing imaginal discs
Higher levels of the transcription factor Cbt are detected during the onset of wound healing which leads to the regeneration of Drosophila wing imaginal discs. Apoptosis was induced in Drosophila wing imaginal discs by expression of the pro-apoptotic gene reaper (rpr) using the salm-Gal4 construct to drive expression. Fluorescent in situ hybridization was used to detect Cbt expression (blue) and nuclei (red). Prior to the onset of wound healing Cbt expression remains constant throughout the disc. Picture shows the basal part of a regenerating disc highlighting the death domain.
