Example text

Indeed, the weight of evidence suggests that the phenotypes associated with the Drosophila parkin, PINK1, and DJ-1 models, which include sensitivity to oxidative stress agents and mitochondrial dysfunction, are directly relevant to the mechanisms implicated in PD. Nevertheless, Drosophila are still a relatively simple model organism, far less complex than humans, hence, it is understandable that some aspects that may be relevant or even crucial to our understanding of a particular human disease may not be evident in Drosophila.

In any case, the availability and validity of Drosophila models for PD provide an excellent opportunity for early stage drug testing to reduce the cost and risk associated with developing such a therapeutic, prior to further testing in mammalian preclinical models. VII. CONCLUSIONS The fruit fly D. melanogaster has proven itself to be an invaluable model system in basic studies of genetics and biology for over 100 years. Given the remarkable degree of genetic, molecular, and cell biological conservation between flies and mammals that has been revealed over the decades, Drosophila remains a valid model system in which to address novel biological questions in the future, including those relevant to human health.

2010). Although the current consensus supports PINK1 and parkin acting in a common pathway to maintain mitochondrial integrity (discussed more below), the precise mechanisms by which their dysfunction leads to neuronal death are unclear and may indeed cause different pleiotropic effects at the end stage of pathology. D. Omi/HtrA2 High-temperature requirement A2 (HtrA2/Omi) is a mitochondrial protease that exhibits proapoptotic and cell protective properties and has been linked to PD. , 2005).
