    Curr Opin Neurobiol 19:200-6. 2009
    ..Several recent articles refute this notion, however, demonstrating that at a minimum, both fruitless and doublesex are involved in establishing sexually dimorphic features of neural circuitry and behavior in fruit flies...

    ..sexta PER and rhythmic expression in glial cells, are reminiscent of the period gene of D. melanogaster, suggesting that some functions of per may be conserved in this lepidopteran species...

    Department of Genetics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Neuron 34:973-84. 2002
    ..Morphological analysis of neurons required for normal circadian behavior reveals subtle abnormalities, suggesting that defects in axonal pathfinding or synapse formation may cause the observed behavioral defects...
