Lee YM, Sun YH. Drosophila as a model to study the role of glia in neurodegeneration. J Neurogenet. 2015 Aug 27:1-11. PMID: 26312528.
From the abstract: "Neurons and glia interact reciprocally. ... Neurodegenerative diseases are usually
late-onset, progressive, and affect specific parts of the nervous
system. ... The events that occur in glia, and whether and how
glia participate in the pathogenesis of these diseases, have not been as
well studied. In this review, we will focus on how the fruit fly
Drosophila melanogaster has been used as a model to study neuron-glia
interactions in neurodegenerative disorders ..."
