Drosophila neuropeptide F (NPF), a homolog of vertebrate neuropeptide Y, functions in feeding and coordination of behavioral changes in larvae and in modulation of alcohol sensitivity in adults, suggesting diverse roles for this peptide. To gain more insight into adult-specific NPF neuronal functions, we studied how npf expression is regulated in the adult brain. Here, we report that npf expression is regulated in both sex-nonspecific and male-specific manners. Our data show that male-specific… CONTINUE READING
