Telomere Length Measurement for Drosophila Samples


In Drosophila, telomeres are composed of TTAGG repeats, and they can range from around 300 bp to over 7,000 bp in length. The telomere length of a particular organism can vary due to genetic and environmental factors. However, it is noteworthy that Drosophila telomeres contain DNA sequences that are distinct from those of other eukaryotes. Drosophila telomeres use an array of reverse transcription transposons to maintain chromosome length, whereas almost all other eukaryotes rely on short repetitive sequences generated by telomerase. Although the underlying mechanisms may differ, Drosophila telomere function is similar to that found in telomerase-based telomeres.

Telomere Length Measurement for Drosophila Samples

CD BioSciences can provide telomere length testing services for Drosophila samples. These tests can be used to study the effects of aging on the organism as well as the effects of various factors on the telomeres.

Sample Requirements

At CD BioSciences, our team understands the unique requirements of Drosophila research and ensures that sample collection and preservation align with the highest scientific standards. Drosophila researchers can rely on our expertise to guide them through the sample collection and preservation process.

Items Requirements
Sample materials We can test a variety of Drosophila tissue samples such as the abdomen and wings.
Cell samples The collection of cells for telomere assay should be done in a sterile environment to prevent contamination.
DNA samples > 100 μg of genomic DNA, and should be stored at -20°C or below.
It is recommended that DNA samples be examined by gel electrophoresis before sending.
