Evolutionary conservation of homologous genes that cause related phenotypes in humans and Drosophila help to unravel genes implicated in polygenic human diseases. Among them are neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntington, Parkinson, Alzheimer and HIV-induced diseases. They are characterized by a late onset disturbances of memory, changes in volumetric(More)
Behavioural experiments with Y-maze showed that phonotaxis in female crickets to male calling songs (CS) depends on the spectrum of the latter. Conservation of the first low-frequency (5 kc. p. s.) component of the spectrum is the necessary and sufficient condition for the development of normal phonotaxis. Signals which in their temporal characteristics are(More)
There are debates about the function of the two main central brain structures of insects--mushroom bodies and the central complex--in the control of motor co-ordination and triggering of different behaviour programs including sound production. To throw additional light onto this problem we analysed the parameters of the love song produced by 5-day old males(More)
Transgenic mice carrying bovine satellite DNA IV were obtained. The size of the transgene integrated into the mouse genome was approximately 390 kb (about 100 transgene copies) as determined by a semiquantitative PCR. Restriction analysis with isoschizomeric restrictases HpaII and MspI, showed that the alien DNA was methylated. In the genome of a transgenic(More)
