Commonly known as a fruit fly or vinegar fly, Drosophila melanogaster is one of the most prevalent flying insects. It is classified under the family Drosophilidae of the order distinguishing physical characteristics of fruit flies are brick-red eyes and brownish colored body with significant black rings along the length of the abdomen. The images, but in particularly the lateral image of Drosophila melanogaster are composites of many images. These images were made using the BK Plus Lab System from Visionary Digital. Drawings overlay the images. The images and drawings were created in Adobe Photoshop.   Drosophila has long served as a valuable model for deciphering many biological processes, including immune responses. Indeed, the genetic tractability of this organism is particularly suited for large-scale analyses. Studies performed during the last 3 decades have proven that the signaling pathways that regulate the innate immune response are conserved between Drosophila and Cited by: 4.   The Drosophila melanogaster cell line, Clone 8+, was used to investigate cell adhesion in tissue culture. Statistical analyses were carried out and it was established that derivatives of the parent cell line, Clone 8+, showed differential adhesion and proliferation characteristics.

Abstract. The most abundant immune cells in Drosophila are macrophage-like plasmatocytes that fulfill central roles in morphogenesis, immune and tissue damage response.

The various genetic tools available in Drosophila together with high-resolution and live-imaging microscopy techniques make Drosophila macrophages an excellent model system that combines many Cited by: 2. Genetic fate mapping experiments described here strongly suggest that the germ cells of Drosophila melanogaster originate from the posterior-most.

The fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster is rated as an excellent model system to study the innate immunity, because insects and vertebrates share numerous common molecular elements of immune response.
