The adult male accessory glands of D. melanogaster synthesize and secrete a peptide that represses female sexual receptivity and stimulates oviposition. Normally, this peptide is transferred to females during copulation; however, the peptide shows the same biological activity after purification and subsequent injection into the abdominal cavity of female(More)
Sex peptide, a secreted component of the male accessory glands, has been shown to induce behavioral and physiological changes in mated Drosophila. We transformed flies with a hybrid gene containing an hsp70 promoter fused to a cDNA encoding sex peptide. Heat-induced ectopic expression of the peptide in transgenic virgin females altered their reproductive(More)
Four small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs) have been isolated from Drosophila melanogaster flies. They have been characterized by base analysis, fingerprinting, and injection into Axolotl oocytes. The size of the molecules and the modified base composition suggest that the following correlations can be made: snRNA1 approximately U2-snRNA; snRNA2 approximately(More)
The substance, PS-1, produced in the paragonial gland of adult male Drosophila funebris influences the mating behavior of virgin female flies after injection. The substance was isolated and characterized as a 27-residue peptide. The complete amino acid sequence was determined by manual sequence analysis of tryptic peptides, automated Edman degradation, and(More)
To improve the classifying accuracy for credit rating, many techniques have been applied in the credit scoring methods. This research has developed a credit scoring system based on case-based reasoning (CBR) with the genetic algorithm (GA) applied in the k-nearest-neighbor (k-NN) technique for case retrieving. Performance of the system has been presented(More)
