The role of small GTPases in regulating sleep in Drosophila melanogaster

Abstract:

Sleep is highly conserved across the animal kingdom, yet why and how we sleep remains largely unknown. Uncovering the molecular pathway underlying homeostatic sleep regulation is integral to understanding the origin and function of sleep, as well as for the development of spatiotemporally precise medication to treat sleep disorders.

In the model organism, Drosophila melanogaster, neurons that project to the dorsal fan shaped body (dFB neurons) form a critical part of the ...
