  • Insect glands may illuminate human fertilization process | Department of Embryology
    of these glands in fruit flies provides important information about gland development in all insects as well as potential clues to similar human reproductive glands Their work is published this month in Current Biology When a female fruit fly receives sperm from a male fruit fly lubricating secretions in her reproductive tract activate the sperm store it and guide it to fertilization Without the aid of these secretions sperm would not make it to the eggs Carnegie s Allan Spradling and Jianjun Sun demonstrated that the gene in charge of regulating the development of fruit fly secretion glands is called Hr39 It encodes a steroid receptor protein Mutant fruit flies that lack this gene have no such glands formed in the reproductive tract and are infertile However their formation could be partially restored with the expression of a mouse gene that encodes an analogous steroid receptor in mammals called Lrh 1 Mutant mice that lack this gene are also infertile The work demonstrates that even though it has been millions of years since there was a common ancestor that links fruit flies to mice and more generally insects to mammals these similar genes are still in charge of at least

  • Carnegie’s BioEYES Honored Twofold | Department of Embryology
    society in Montreal in July BioEYES with program manager Valerie Butler is also currently featured in a video on the front page of the Baltimore City Schools website The award was established in 2002 by the society to honor neuroembryologist Dr Viktor Hamburger It recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to education in developmental biology The recipient delivers a lecture at the education symposium of the annual meetings One great thing about the video is that you clearly see how engaged the students are That s hard to describe when talking to people about the impact of BioEYES remarked Farber It s a great honor to be recognized by the Society for Developmental Biology They have been a stalwart supporter of BioEYES since its early beginnings They recognize our commitment to improve science education in the public schools BioEYES was established at Carnegie in 2007 to foster an interest in and a love for science in elementary middle and high school students It is the brainchild of molecular biologist Steven Farber at the Carnegie Institution s Department of Embryology It provides outdoor and classroom based learning through the use of live zebrafish It also incorporates teacher empowerment and provides
