The Drosophila takeout Gene Is a Novel Molecular Link between Circadian Rhythms and Feeding Behavior


We report the characterization of a novel Drosophila circadian clock-regulated output gene, takeout (to). The to amino acid sequence shows similarity to two ligand binding proteins, including juvenile hormone binding protein. to mRNA is expressed in the head and the cardia, crop, and antennae-structures related to feeding. to expression is induced by… (More)
