A Novel Hygrotaxis Assay for Assessing Thirst Perception and Water Sensation in Drosophila
Authors:  Yuanjie Sun, Shan Gao, Feiteng Ji and Yan Zhu, date: 02/05/2019, view: 540, Q&A: 0
Water is essential for the survival of terrestrial animals. Animals obtain water from their food, from metabolism and, more importantly, by drinking. It is therefore vital for dehydrated animals to efficiently locate water sources in the wild. ...

Drosophila Endurance Training and Assessment of Its Effects on Systemic Adaptations
Authors:  Deena Damschroder , Tyler Cobb, Alyson Sujkowski and Robert Wessells, date: 10/05/2018, view: 1109, Q&A: 0
Exercise induces beneficial systemic adaptations that reduce the incidence of age-related diseases. However, the molecular pathways that elicit these adaptations are not well understood. Understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie the ...
