Review--fly as model for studying role of glia in neurodegeneration

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 ..."
