The role of cell competition in carcinogenesis: genetic analysis of the relationships between glial and neuroepithelial cells in the Drosophila larval brain

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project focuses on myc function in determining the stem cell fate. The neuroepithelial cells of Drosophila (NEs), which differentiate in neurons and glia through intermediate neuroblasts (NBs), will be used as a model. The onco-protein Myc is expressed at high levels in NEs and repressed in the descendant NBs. In the female germline, the Transforming Growth Factor β (TGFβ) released by the niche induces the stem cells to express myc, maintaining their stem fate. Such a mechanism may be conserved in the NEs specification, since we found a TGFβ source located in cells of glial origin adjacent to the NEs, which express its receptor. The aim of this project is to characterise the topography of this specific glial subpopulation and demonstrate the role of the TGFβ-myc signalling in the survival and maintainment of the neuroepithelium.
