Dietary sucrose and ethanol are potent modulators of sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH) in the third instar larvae of Drosophila melanogaster. When added to modified Sang's medium C, 428 mM ethanol and 146 mM sucrose each increased the GPDH tissue activity more than 90% and GPDH cross-reacting material (CRM) more than 50% over the levels found in(More)
The effect that variation in activities of the enzymes alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) has on the flux from 14C-ethanol to lipids was examined in third-instar larvae of Drosophila melanogaster and D. simulans. The activities of ADH and ALDH were also nutritionally manipulated by the inhibitor, cyanamide. Feeding larvae(More)
