The Conservation of Sima and PTp61F in Drosophila

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Within the Drosophila species, the Insulin-like Receptor Signaling (ILRS) Pathway is controlled by a variety of genes that either inhibit or excite the ILRS pathway. Changes within pathways can potentially be dangerous to and organism and cause issues such as cancer. By investigating the insulin TOR pathway across many Drosophila species, we can investigate the selective pressures of evolution at different points within that pathway to understand how pathways are regulated. In previous studies, genes that are more connected physically have been found to show slower rates of evolution as a species diverges over time. In our research we annotated the genes Sima and Ptp61F in a variety of Drosophila species.
