Immobilization of insects is necessary for various experimental purposes, and CO(2) exposure remains the most popular anaesthetic method in entomological research. A number of negative side effects of CO(2) anaesthesia have been reported, but CO(2) probably brings about metabolic modifications that are poorly known. In this work, we used GC/MS-based metabolic fingerprinting to assess the effect of CO(2) anaesthesia in Drosophila melanogaster adults. We analysed metabolic variation of flies… CONTINUE READING
