Department of Biology, New York University, NY 10003
Science 267:902-5. 1995..These two brain structures, both of which are involved in olfactory processing, may function in the recognition of sex-specific pheromones, in the control of sex-specific behaviors, or both...

Bioessays 19:353-8. 1997..Recent exploration of these interspecific variations, and of intraspecific variations, has led to the characterization of genes and to the mapping of structures that process the production and perception of chemical messages...

Neurobiologie de l Apprentissage et de la Memoire Mécanismes de Communication, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique Unité Mixte de Recherche 8620, Universite Paris Sud, 91405 Orsay, France
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:9015-20. 1999..The absence of inhibitory pheromones leads to high levels of interspecific mating, suggesting an important role for these cuticular hydrocarbons in isolation between species...

URA CNRS 1491, Universite Paris Sud, Orsay, France
Genet Res 67:211-8. 1996..melanogaster strains and between D. melanogaster and its sibling species D. simulans. The possible evolutionary and physiological causes of this variation as well as its functional implication for courtship behaviour are discussed...
- Sex-specific non-pheromonal taste receptors in DrosophilaN Meunier
I N R A, Centre de Versailles, F 78026 Versailles Cedex, France
Curr Biol 10:1583-6. 2000..The fact that tarsal gustatory hairs exhibit a sexual dimorphism that affects the perception of non-pheromonal compounds suggests that sexual identity is more complex than has previously been thought [7,8]...

Dev Biol 260:391-403. 2003..Moreover, we were able to rescue the muscle phenotype of vg(null) flies by using the activity of ap promoter to drive VG expression. Thus, vg appears to be a key regulatory gene of IFM development...
