Commensal bacteria play a role in mating preference of Drosophila melanogaster
Development of mating preference is considered to be an early event in speciation. In this study, mating preference was achieved by dividing a population of Drosophila melanogaster and rearing oneExpand

Modulation of Drosophila heartbeat by neurotransmitters
Abstract The heart of Drosophila melanogaster is a simple muscular tube with a posterior pulsatile portion and a thoracic-cranial vessel. The pacemaker, located caudally, is myogenic. Its rate ofExpand

Morphology of the pupal heart, adult heart, and associated tissues in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster
The early pupal heart of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has recently been the subject of intense physiological and molecular work, yet it has not been well described, nor has it been comparedExpand

Genetic and pharmacological identification of ion channels central to the Drosophila cardiac pacemaker.
Drosophila provides an excellent model for delineating the role of ion channels in the origin and transmission of heartbeat. We report here tests in Drosophila on a wide range of mutations andExpand

Modulation of the cardiac pacemaker of Drosophila: cellular mechanisms
Abstract. The myogenic cardiac pacemaker of Drosophilamelanogaster responds to a range of neurotransmitters and hormones by adjusting heart rate. These cardioactive substances ultimately affect theExpand

A congenital heart defect in Drosophila caused by an action-potential mutation.
The mutation no action potential (nap) induces arrhythmia in the heartbeat of Drosophila melanogaster larvae at temperatures above 20 degrees C; heartbeat becomes normally rhythmic again after aExpand

Sexual receptivity is female behavior that allows or helps a male to fertilize her eggs; through this behavior, females play an active role in reproduction. Multiple signals may be used forExpand

Circadian and ultradian rhythms inperiod mutants ofDrosophila melanogaster
Using digital techniques for signal analysis—the correlogram and a high-resolution analysis of time series, maximum-entropy spectral analysis (MESA)—we have detected both circadian and ultradianExpand

Analysis of Male Courtship Patterns and Mating Behavior of Brachymeria intermedia1
Twenty-four discrete, stereotyped behaviors were identified in the parasitic chalcid wasp, Brachymeria intermedia (Nees), in addition to copulation. Four were used in mate-finding, 9 in courtship,Expand

Effects of Precocene and Low Protein Diet on Reproductive Behavior in Drosophila melanogaster (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
Abstract In a wild-type strain of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen, the antijuvenoid precocene I reduced primary sexual receptivity in a dose-dependent manner; exposure to 0.80 μmol halved mating byExpand
