UASt regulatory sequences drive expression of an inverted repeat corresponding to MetRS-m.
decreased cell size | cell autonomous | somatic clone, with Scer\GAL4Act5C.PP
lysosome & larval fat body | somatic clone | cell autonomous, with Scer\GAL4Act5C.PP
Aats-metdsRNA.Scer\UAS.NIG clones in fat bodies from well-fed early third instar larvae (generated using Scer\GAL4Act5C.PP) accumulate lysosomes, as indicated by elevated LysoTracker staining, and comprise small cells with small nuclei.
Expression of Aats-metdsRNA.Scer\UAS.NIG produces dsRNA which results in dsRNA interference (RNAi) of the Aats-met gene. Aats-metdsRNA.Scer\UAS.NIG was generated by the National Institute of Genetics of Japan in Shizuoka.
