Several recent reports--fly models of neurodegenerative diseases

Phom L, Achumi B, Alone DP, Muralidhara M, Yenisetti SC. Curcumin's Neuroprotective Efficacy in Drosophila Model of Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease is Phase Specific: Implication of its Therapeutic Effectiveness. Rejuvenation Res. 2014 Sep 19. PMID: 25238331.

Mizielinska S, Grönke S, Niccoli T, Ridler CE, Clayton EL, Devoy A, Moens T, Norona FE, Woollacott IO, Pietrzyk J, Cleverley K, Nicoll AJ, Pickering-Brown S, Dols J, Cabecinha M, Hendrich O, Fratta P, Fisher EM, Partridge L, Isaacs AM. C9orf72 repeat expansions cause neurodegeneration in Drosophila through arginine-rich proteins. Science. 2014 Sep 5;345(6201):1192-4. PMID: 25103406.

Latypova EM, Timoshenko SI, Kislik GA, Vitek MP, Schwarzman AL, Sarantseva SV. [Investigation of neuroprotective activity of apolipoprotein E peptide mimetic Cog1410 in transgenic lines of drosophila melanogaster.]. Biomed Khim. 2014 Jul;60(4):515-521. [article in Russian.] PMID: 25249536.

Liao J, Morin LW, Ahmad ST. Methods to Characterize Spontaneous and Startle-induced Locomotion in a Rotenone-induced Parkinson's Disease Model of Drosophila. J Vis Exp. 2014 Aug 17;(90). PMID: 25178101.

Buhlman L, Damiano M, Bertolin G, Ferrando-Miguel R, Lombès A, Brice A, Corti O. Functional interplay between Parkin and Drp1 in mitochondrial fission and clearance. Biochim Biophys Acta. 2014 Sep;1843(9):2012-26. PMID: 24878071.

Marcora MS, Fernández-Gamba AC, Avendaño LA, Rotondaro C, Podhajcer OL, Vidal R, Morelli L, Ceriani MF, Castaño EM. Amyloid peptides ABri and ADan show differential neurotoxicity in transgenic Drosophila models of familial British and Danish dementia. Mol Neurodegener. 2014 Jan 9;9:5. PMID: 24405716; PMCID: PMC3898387.  From the abstract: "Familial British and Familial Danish dementias (FBD and FDD, respectively) are associated with mutations in the BRI2 gene. ... In this work we have modeled FBD and FDD in Drosophila and tested the hypothesis that ABri and ADan are differentially neurotoxic."
