Monitoring Cell-to-cell Transmission of Prion-like Protein Aggregates in Drosophila Melanogaster Kirby M. Donnelly1, Margaret M. P. Pearce1 1Department of Biological Sciences, University of the Sciences Accumulating evidence supports the idea that pathogenic protein aggregates associated with neurodegenerative diseases spread between cells with prion-like properties. Here, we describe a method that enables visualization of cell-to-cell spreading of prion-like aggregates in the model organism, Drosophila melanogaster.
