Genetical factors controlling the cuticular hydrocarbons (CHC) of Drosophila virilis and D. lummei, and the effect of CHC on female attractivity were studied. A strong sexual dimorphism was found in D. virilis where (Z)-10-heneicosene and (Z)-11-pentacosene were major CHC for males and females, respectively. In D. lummei, (Z)-9-pentacosene was the major CHC… (More)
The fne (found-in-neurons) locus encodes one of the three paralogs of the ELAV gene family of Drosophila melanogaster. Members of this family are found throughout metazoans and encode RNA-binding proteins with primarily neuronal localization, but with remarkably diverse functions given their high level of amino acid sequence conservation. The first… (More)
We report here direct evidence for the involvement of a pheromone in the induction of male wing vibration, an important fixed action of theDrosophila melanogaster courtship pattern. This chemical stimulus is produced by mature females but not by mature males. The behavioral response is proportional to the pheromone concentration.
