When two socially naive Drosophila males meet, they will fight. However, prior social grouping of males reduces their aggression. We found olfactory communication to be important for modulating Drosophila aggression. Although acute exposure to the male-specific pheromone 11-cis-vaccenyl acetate (cVA) elicited aggression through Or67d olfactory receptor(More)
The development of an efficient diastereoselective synthesis of the oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane ring system bearing two oxygenated quaternary chiral centres represents a significant challenge. This motif can be found in a wide range of natural products with significant biological activities. Here we report the synthesis of such kind of scaffold using a(More)
