Male courtship in Drosophila melanogaster is a robust innate behavior that is shaped by sensory input and experience. It is regulated by the general sex-determination pathway through the sex-specific forms of fruitless and doublesex. Recent findings have shown that both fruitless and doublesex are required for courtship. This chapter reviews the role of these proteins and the neurons that express them in the regulation of courtship behavior. In particular it discusses how doublesex and… CONTINUE READING
