Dynamic, mating-induced gene expression changes in female head and brain tissues of Drosophila melanogaster

BMC Genomics

Justin E DaltonMichelle N Arbeitman

Abstract

Drosophila melanogaster females show changes in behavior and physiology after mating that are thought to maximize the number of progeny resulting from the most recent copulation. Sperm and seminal fluid proteins induce post-mating changes in females, however, very little is known about ...read more

Signal Transduction & Control of Gene Expression

Expression of genes are thought to be involved in signaling pathways, which are important for cell growth, metabolism, apoptosis and more. It is thought that gene expression plays a part in the signaling pathways that implicates the biological effects of the cell. Here is the latest research on signal transduction and the control of gene expression.

Gfral Neurons Reduce Food Intake

GFRAL is a receptor for growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15). These proteins play a role in regulating inflammatory pathways, as well as cell repair, apoptosis, cell growth, and body-weight regulation. Here is the latest research on the role of GFRAL-expressing neurons in reducing food intake.

Perturb-seq

Perturb-seq has combined CRISPR gene inactivation and single-cell rna-sequencing (scRNA-seq) and is the newest addition to the geneticist's arsenal, providing scientists with study methods for functional genomics. Discover the latest research here.

Innate Immunity: Neurodegeneration

The innate immune system is a first line of defense against infection. Pathological states can occur if there is over activation of the innate immune system, particularly in the. The excessive activation of these cells can lead to inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on innate immunity and neurodegeneration.

Organellar TRP channels

Orangellar TRP channels are transient receptor potential (TRP) channels mediate Ca2+ flux and voltage changes across membranes in response to environmental and cellular signals. Discover the latest research on organellar TRP channels here.

Dopamine & Feeding

Midbrain dopamine neurons have long been implicated in mediating reward behavior and the motivational aspects of feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to dopamine and feeding.

Neural Control of Overconsumption

Overconsumption is associated with activity of a complex network of neuroregulators affecting areas such as drug addiction and binge eating. Discover the latest research on neural control of overconsumption here.

Hippocampus & Feeding

Human and animal data suggest that the hippocampus plays many roles in regulating food intake. Discover the latest research on hippocampus and feeding here.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.

Neurotransmitters in Feeding

Serotonin and dopamine are neurotransmitters involved in feeding and eating disorders. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotransmitters in feeding.

Neural Circuits Regulating Feeding

Neurons within the central nervous system receive signals that regulate feeding and metabolism. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in regulating feeding.

Ion Channels

Ion channels are pore-forming proteins that allow the passage of ions from one side of the membrane to the other and are at the heart of many biological processes including nerve activity and muscle contraction. Discover the latest research on ion channels here.

Hedonic Feeding

Hedonic feeding is eating to obtain pleasure in the absence of an energy deficit. Recent evidence suggests that the hunger hormone ghrelin is involved in hedonic feeding through the dopaminergic reward pathway. Discover the latest research on hedonic feeding here.

Chaperones & Protein Folding

Chaperones are proteins that play an essential role in protein folding, stability, assembly, and degradation. Their depletion or dysfunction has been implicated in protein folding disorders. Here is the latest research.

Neural Circuits in Stress & Feeding

Studies have reported important roles for subpopulations of gabaergic cells in the regulation of both feeding and arousal. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in stress and feeding.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.
