Poster #80: Forest Streeter – Deficiency in a Regulator of G-Protein Signaling, Loco, Protects D. melanogaster from Effects of a High Salt Diet

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Aylin Rodan

Under the supervision of Dr. Rodan, a senior nephrologist at the University of Utah specializing in renal disorders and hypertension, I will use multiple genotypes of D. Melanogaster including genomic mutant and RNAi strains to analyze the effects of a salty diet on aging. In addition, I will consider the possibility of rescuing high salt sensitivity with mutations to a regulator in G-protein signaling, Loco.
