laminin in cell culture

I want to try culturing Drosophila cells in a study of myoblast fusion.  Does
anyone know whether laminin coated coverslips make any improvement to muscle
cells in culture (I am intending to use serum in the medium as well).  Also,
can one buy Drosophila laminin, or will commercially-available mouse 
laminin do?  Or will the peptide CDPGYIGSR do? 
Any other tips on culturing muscle cells will be most gratefully received!
Thanks, Emma
