... and by ‘deorphanisation’ of neuropeptide receptors. The evolutionary origins of at least 30 neuropeptide signalling systems have been traced to the common ancestor of protostomes and deuterostomes. Furthermore, two rounds of genome duplication gave rise to an expanded repertoire of neuropeptide signalling systems...

Indeed, 10 nmol l −1 eCFP-speract induces physiological sperm responses such as membrane potential changes and increases in intracellular pH and Ca 2+ concentrations similar to those triggered by 10 nmol l −1...

In conclusion, the Mozambique tilapia has evolved high olfactory sensitivity and specificity to 3-glucuronidated steroids through two distinct olfactory receptor types; one detecting a male sex pheromone...

In support of this, we found expression of a phospholipase C and an inositol trisphosphate receptor in the rhinophore sensory epithelia and possibly distributed within outer dendrites of olfactory sensory...

...Cécile Faucher; Manfred Forstreuter; Monika Hilker; Marien de Bruyne SUMMARY Drosophila melanogaster (Meigen) detects and uses many volatiles for its survival. Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) is detected in adults by a special class of olfactory receptor neurons, expressing the gustatory receptor Gr21a...

The Drosophila genome contains two genes( CG8422 and CG1237 0) orthologous to Manduca and Acheta DH-Rs. Here, we present multiple lines of evidence to support...

Feeding on solanaceous foliage therefore appears to result in a modification of the physiological responses of individual taste receptor cells that causes them to be tuned to the host-recognition cue indioside D. We propose that this tuning...

Using behavioural experiments in the field and in the laboratory, we show that the beetle is able to roll along a straight path by using the polarised light pattern of evening skylight.

In contrast, mutants do melanize in response to injection of an analog of cyclic AMP, the second messenger for bursicon...
