2017 journal article

Building early-larval sexing systems for genetic control of the Australian sheep blow fly Lucilia cuprina using two constitutive promoters

Scientific Reports, 7(1).

By: Y. Yan n, R. Linger n & M. Scott n

MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified; Australia; Diptera / genetics; Diptera / growth & development; Diptera / metabolism; Embryo, Nonmammalian; Female; Genes, Insect; Genes, Lethal; Larva / genetics; Larva / growth & development; Larva / metabolism; Male; Pest Control, Biological / methods; Promoter Regions, Genetic; Sex Differentiation; Sheep / parasitology; Sheep Diseases / prevention & control; Tetracycline / pharmacology; Transcriptional Activation / drug effects
TL;DR: Investigating the idea of isolating and employing the promoters from the Lucilia spitting image and actin 5C genes to drive tTA expression in embryos and later stages found it to be effective for assembling an effective TSS. (via Semantic Scholar)

2015 journal article

Dosage Compensation of X-Linked Muller Element F Genes but Not X-Linked Transgenes in the Australian Sheep Blowfly

PLOS ONE, 10(10), e0141544.

By: R. Linger n, E. Belikoff n & M. Scott n

Ed(s): G. Marais

MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified; Diptera / genetics; Dosage Compensation, Genetic; Drosophila melanogaster / genetics; Female; Gene Expression Regulation, Developmental; Genes, X-Linked / genetics; Larva; Male; X Chromosome / genetics
TL;DR: It appears that the Lucilia dosage compensation system is specific for genes endogenous to the X chromosome and cannot be co-opted by recently arrived transgenes. (via Semantic Scholar)

2014 journal article

Transgenic sexing system for genetic control of the Australian sheep blow fly Lucilia cuprina

Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 51, 80–88.

By: F. Li n, H. Wantuch n, R. Linger n, E. Belikoff n & M. Scott n

author keywords: Sterile insect technique; Transgenic; Lucilia cuprina; Flystrike; Genetic sexing
MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified; Diptera / genetics; Female; Genes, Insect; Genes, Lethal; Male; Pest Control, Biological / methods; Sex Determination Processes
TL;DR: Transgenic strains of L. cuprina that carry a dominant tetracycline repressible female lethal genetic system are developed and should be readily transferrable to other major calliphorid livestock pests including the New and Old World screwworm. (via Semantic Scholar)
