Evaluation of short-term memory in monosodium glutamate-fed fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) using adverse phototaxic suppression.
Aversive phototaxic suppression (APS) is a behavioral assay in which fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) are repeatedly trained to avoid light by associating it with an aversive stimulus (quinine). In this study, the ...
Fluctuating asymetry of wing vein traits in the fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) exposed to sidestream cigarette smoke.
Insect wing veins are important structures that easily respond to stressors like sidestream cigarette smoke. Developmental instability caused by these stressors can manifest as fluctuating asymmetry (FA), or random deviations ...
Effects of exposure to sulfur dioxide on the histology of fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) gonads and fat bodies.
This study investigates the effect of larval exposure to sulfur dioxide on the histology of the Drosophila melanogaster gonads and fat bodies. The organs were examined through histological observation and measurement of ...
Effects of varying sulfur dioxide exposure to the extent of lipd peroxidation in Drosophila melanogaster.
This study investigated the extent of lipid peroxidation in the conditions of varying oxidative stress concentrations of SO₂ (0, 0.04, and 0.4 ppm) to Drosophila melanogaster larvae. Catalase activity and levels of ...
