Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9955906A2] The present invention relates to cell death genes, which are genes required for programmed cell death; mutant organisms, in which ectopic programmed cell death occurs in embryos to a greater than normal extent and agents which alter the ability to modulate programmed cell death of cells. A mutant form of Daktl, Daktl?q? in a Drosophila melanogaster has been identified. Daktl and its mammalian homolog, PKB are known to protect cells from undergoing apoptosis. A genetic screen for identifying genes related to programmed cell death by their ability to interact genetically with the mutant form of Daktl is described.
