Description

Scanning electron micrograph of a Drosophila melanogaster sestrin-null mutant. Sestrin-null Drosophila are used to study pathways involved in oxidative stress and aging. Relevant article: Lee, JH et al., Sestrin as a feedback inhibitor of TOR that prevents age-related pathologies. Science. 2010 Mar 5;327(5970):1223-8.
