In this application we suggest that under these circumstances a comparative approach, in which kinetoplastid interactions in Drosophila melanogaster are studied in the first instance, will permit us to make significant progress in understanding the more important cases of insect-parasite interactions (Trypanosome brucei spp in tsetse and Leishmania in sandflies).
carnosine and its Trolox- (water-soluble analog of alpha-tocopherol) acylated derivatives (S,S)-6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-carbonyl-beta-alanyl-L-histidine (S,S-Trolox-carnosine, STC) and (R,S)-6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-carbonyl-beta-alanyl-L-histidine (R,S-Trolox-carnosine, RTC) on the life span of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
McBride also compared the two sets of genes to another close relative, the classic lab fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Cambridge University turned to Watson-Marlow Bredel's 624Di/L peristaltic pump to provide a suitable solution for dispensing the food used to feed the Drosophila melanogaster fruit-flies, which form an integral part of the research programme at the Department of Genetics.
The Drosophila melanogaster is used as a model organism to study the effect of multigenerational exposure, because of its short generation time (2 weeks) and genetic homology with humans.
In the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, an interaction between the proteins NorpA (no response potential A, a phospholipase C necessary for visual transduction) and TIM (TIMELESS, a clock protein) underlies this rhythm in visual sensitivity.
The sequencing of multiple species' genomes by the Human Genome Project, including those of the human, the worm Caenorhabditis elegans, and the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, has laid the foundation for the field of comparative genomics.
