Multiple genetic control of acetate-induced olfactory responses in Drosophila melanogaster larvae

Abstract

Behavioural responses of Drosophila melanogaster larvae were measured in response to olfactory stimulation with an homologous series of eight aliphatic n-acetates (methyl…octyl actetate) and with cis-vaccenyl acetate. Larvae tended to be attracted to short-chain acetates (methyl…pentyl) and repelled by longer chain acetates (hexyl, heptyl and octyl acetate… (More)
