The recent identification and characterization of two genes, encoding histamine-gated chloride channel subunits from Drosophila melanogaster, has confirmed that histamine is a major neurotransmitter in the fruitfly. One of the cloned genes, hclA (synonyms: HisCl-alpha1; HisCl2), corresponds to ort (ora transientless), mutationsin which affect synaptic transmission in the Drosophila visual system. We identified a mutational change (a null mutation) in the genomic and RNA copies of hclA derived… CONTINUE READING
