- Oviposition preference for and positional avoidance of acetic acid provide a model for competing behavioral drives in DrosophilaRyan M Joseph
Program in Biological Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143 2822, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:11352-7. 2009....
- Preferential ethanol consumption in Drosophila models features of addictionAnita V Devineni
University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143 2822, USA
Curr Biol 19:2126-32. 2009..Third, flies rapidly return to high levels of ethanol consumption after a period of imposed abstinence. Thus, ethanol preference in Drosophila provides a new model for studying aspects of addiction...
- The genetic relationships between ethanol preference, acute ethanol sensitivity, and ethanol tolerance in Drosophila melanogasterAnita V Devineni
University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA
Fly (Austin) 5:191-9. 2011..The evolutionary conservation of the relationship between tolerance and ethanol consumption in flies, rodents, and humans indicates that there are fundamental biological mechanisms linking specific ethanol responses...
- The novel gene tank, a tumor suppressor homolog, regulates ethanol sensitivity in DrosophilaAnita V Devineni
Department of Anatomy and Program in Neuroscience, University of California, San Francisco, California 94158, USA
J Neurosci 33:8134-43. 2013..Overall, we have characterized a novel gene and corresponding set of neurons that regulate ethanol sensitivity in Drosophila...
- Acute ethanol responses in Drosophila are sexually dimorphicAnita V Devineni
Program in Neuroscience and Department of Anatomy, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:21087-92. 2012..Thus, we have characterized previously undescribed sex differences in behavioral responses to ethanol, and implicated fru in mediating a subset of these differences...
- Drosophila melanogaster as a model to study drug addictionKarla R Kaun
Department of Anatomy, University of California San Francisco, 1550 4th Street, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Hum Genet 131:959-75. 2012..Many of these mechanisms have been validated in mammals, suggesting that the fly is a useful model to understand the mechanisms underlying addiction...
- The evolution of Drosophila melanogaster as a model for alcohol researchAnita V Devineni
Program in Neuroscience and Department of Anatomy, University of California San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Annu Rev Neurosci 36:121-38. 2013..We discuss these advances in the context of their utility to help decipher the mechanisms underlying the diverse effects of ethanol, including those that mediate ethanol dependence and addiction in humans. ..
