The detailed study of chromosome banding in insects with polytene chromosomes can reveal relationships between closely related species: the classic example is the study of chromosome banding in Hawaiian drosophilids by Hampton L. Carson. In about 6,500 sq mi (17,000 km2), the Hawaiian Islands have the most diverse collection of drosophilid flies in the world, living from rainforests to subalpine meadows. These roughly 800 Hawaiian drosophilid species are usually assigned to two genera, Drosophila and Scaptomyza, in the family Drosophilidae. The polytene banding of the picture wing group, the best-studied group of Hawaiian drosophilids, enabled Carson to work out the evolutionary tree long before genome analysis was practicable. In a sense, gene arrangements are visible in the banding patterns of each chromosome. Chromosome rearrangements, especially inversions, make it possible to see which species are closely related. The results are clear. The inversions, when plotted in tree form (and ...

abstract = {BACKGROUND: The Drosophila melanogaster genome contains 29 serpin genes, 12 as single transcripts and 17 within 6 gene clusters. Many of these serpins have a conserved "hinge" motif characteristic of active proteinase inhibitors. However, a substantial proportion (42%) lacks this motif and represents non-inhibitory serpin-fold proteins of unknown function. Currently, it is not known whether orthologous, inhibitory serpin genes retain the same target proteinase specificity within the Drosophilid lineage, nor whether they give rise to non-inhibitory serpin-fold proteins or other, more diverged, proteins. RESULTS: We collated 188 orthologues to the D. melanogaster serpins from the other 11 Drosophilid genomes and used synteny to find further family members, raising the total to 226, or 71% of the number of orthologues expected assuming complete conservation across all 12 Drosophilid species. In general the sequence constraints on the serpin-fold itself are loose. The critical Reactive ...

During courtship, the male Drosophila melanogaster (Diptera, Drosophilidae) produces two kinds of acoustic signals by wing vibration toward the female: the pulse song and the sine song. In order to examine the roles of these two signals, different signals were broadcast to single pairs of flies in which the males were muted by wing cutting). We used a complete song including both the pulse and the sine components, recorded during a successful courtship, to prepare different signals to play back to the flies. Thus, the natural pattern of sound emission was preserved. A preliminary experiment showed that the broadcasting of a natural complete song restored to wingless males a court- ship success comparable to that of normal winged males. A second experiment compared the effects of pulse song and sine song. The pulse song alone was sufficient to stimulate the mating between a wingless male and a virgin female. The sine song had lower effects. In a third experiment, we demonstrated that the ...

Fruit Flies-as in the insect drosophilidae-not savvy straight women who enjoy hovering around fabulous gay men.. Yesterday a reporter from ABC contacted me to ask what I thought about a new study that reveals the sexual orientation of fruit flies can be changed. My immediate response was that I am not a scientist and had not yet been in contact with the fruit fly community, so I wouldnt want to speak for them. But as a vegan, I have personal knowledge of drosophilidae in my fruit bowl, and as an ex-gay survivor, I know about the desperation to change ones orientation.. But how deliciously ironic that they did a study about orientation on fruit flies. Aw, those poor gay fruit flies being type cast in a fruity role once again.. But as I spoke with the reporter, he asked about humans and how some people may respond to this fruit fly orientation switching news. In my mind and heart I traveled back to when I was 19 and longed for a cure. I would have done anything and everything to fix my ...

In the absence of fascin (singed mutant), adult bristles of normal length formed but they were frequently bent or twisted (Fig. 9 b). This phenotype, although present in microchaetes was more pronounced in macrochaetes where the rate of bristle elongation is greater (both elongate over an ∼16-h period but macrochaetes are typically fourfold longer than microchaetes). Unlike the wild-type, where the flutes parallel the long axis and are equally spaced around the bristle circumference, in the fascin-less mutant the fluting twists and turns. The flutes are not equally spaced nor are they equal in size (Fig. 9 b, vertical arrowheads). Besides this twisted appearance we also find, particularly in the lower half of the bristle, a honeycomb of short ridges 5-10 μm in length, most of which are connected to major longitudinal ridges (Fig. 9 b, horizontal arrowheads). Interestingly, the short grooves that interconnect to more major grooves are usually tapered at their tip where a connection is made. ...
A fundamental question in developmental biology is how tissues are patterned to give rise to differentiated body structures with distinct morphologies. The Drosophila wing disc offers an accessible model to understand epithelial spatial patterning. It has been studied extensively using genetic and molecular approaches. Bristle patterns on the thorax, which arise from the medial part of the wing disc, are a classical model of pattern formation, dependent on a pre-pattern of trans-activators and -repressors. Despite of decades of molecular studies, we still only know a subset of the factors that determine the pre-pattern. We are applying a novel and interdisciplinary approach to predict regulatory interactions in this system. It is based on the description of expression patterns by simple logical relations (addition, subtraction, intersection and union) between simple shapes (graphical primitives). Similarities and relations between primitives have been shown to be predictive of regulatory ...

Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are a diverse family of phase II detoxification enzymes found in almost all organisms. Besides playing a major role in the detoxification of xenobiotic and toxic compounds, GSTs are also involved in the regulation of mitogen activated protein (MAP) kinase signal transduction by interaction with proteins in the pathway. An in vitro study was performed for Theta, Omega, Sigma GSTs and their interaction with MAP kinase p38b protein from the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster Meigen (Diptera: Drosophilidae). The study included the effects of all five Omega class GSTs (DmGSTO1, DmGSTO2a, DmGSTO2b, DmGSTO3, DmGSTO4), all five Theta class GSTs (DmGSTT1, DmGSTT2, DmGSTT3a, DmGSTT3b, DmGSTT4), and one Sigma class glutathione transferase on the activity of Drosophila p38b, including the reciprocal effect of this kinase protein on glutathione transferase activity. It was found that DmGSTT2, DmGSTT3b, DmGSTO1, and DmGSTO3 activated p38b significantly. Substrate specificities ...
The invasive species of Drosophila suzukii, the spotted wing drosophila of the Drosophilidae family is an invasive polyphagous species. In this research the dynamics of the population of D. suzukii was followed in three orchards in Zagreb (Maksimir, Jelenovac, Zelenjak) in the period from March 20 to November 27 2017. Feeding traps with apple vinegar were used for catching D. suzukii. The flight began in the period from 27 June to 11 July and lasted until November 27. The total number of catches was 874; in Jelenovac 187, in Maksimir 232 and in Zelenjak 455. From September to November there was a continuous flight and a large increase in the number of caught flies, from which presume the presence of more overlapping generations. Beside the host plants, the development of the pest in this area is also enabled by suitable climatic conditions. The present population in the city of Zagreb poses a danger to fruit producers in the vicinity of Zagreb. The results of this research are a contribution to ...
The ecological success of different Drosophila species depends upon the diversity of adaptive mechanisms to cope with environmental stresses. Drosophila species from contrasting habitats (xeric versus mesic; tropical versus subtropical; and increasing aridity along elevational gradients) face strong selection pressure on their water balance mechanisms. In insects, the cuticle is the interface between physiological systems and environmental conditions; and changes in cuticular components are expected to confer desiccation resistance. Evidence in favour of cuticular lipids as barriers for cuticular water loss include: (i) negative correlation between melting temperature (Tm) and cuticular water loss based on correlative analyses (Hadley 1994); and (ii) changes in the amount of cuticular lipids (approx. 56-110 µg cm−2) in five altitudinal populations of M. sanguinipes (Rourke 2000); and latitudinal divergence in the amount of cuticular lipid mass per fly (9-25 µg fly−1) in Z. indianus ...
The present study was an attempt to investigate the relationships between species and resources exploited by members of five Drosophilid communities (four insular and one continental) coming from remnants of the Atlantic Forest in Santa Catarina State (South Brazilian Region). It has two basic approaches: 1) the study of dynamic of the proper Drosophilid communities , including the analyses of their diversities and similarities, during one year sampling period , and the interpretation of the sazonality patterns observed in the groups of Drosophila species; 2) the study of the chromosomal polymorphism of Drosophila polymorpha , one of the more common and constantly sampled species in all the collection sites. Our results indicated high richness of Drosophila species and related genus in the populations of the two Ratones (Grande and Pequeno) islands, but with low species diversities, due to the dominance effect of the D. willistoni subgroup. The communities of Ratones Pequeno and Sertão do Peri ...

Pyrocystis noctiluca is a marine plankton with the ability to produce bioluminescence. This is a blue light produced instantaneously in response to water movement usually around ships and breaking waves. Pyrocystis uses the bioluminescence as protection against predators by starling them with a flash of light or highlighting the movement of predators so that they are vulnerable to secondary predators.

Olfaction presents the ultimate challenge to molecular recognition as thousands of molecules have to be recognized by far fewer olfactory receptors. We have presented evidence that Drosophila readily distinguish odorants based on their molecular vibrations using a battery of behavioral assays suggesting engagement of a molecular vibration-sensing component. Here we interrogate electrophysiologically the antennae of four Drosophilids and demonstrate conserved differential response amplitudes to aldehydes, alcohols, ketones, nitriles and their deuterated isotopologues. Certain deuterated odorants evoked larger electroantennogram (EAG) amplitudes, while the response to the normal odorant was elevated in others. Significantly, benzonitrile isotopologues were not distinguishable as predicted. This suggests that isotopologue-specific EAG amplitudes result from differential activation of specific olfactory receptors. In support of this, odorants with as few as two deuteria evoke distinct EAG amplitudes ...
