Confocal images with anti-GFP and anti-Brp staining of TH-C-AD;TH-D-DBD > mCD::GFP fly brains: A: 4 PPM 2 DANs per hemisphere marked with blue circles, three clusters of Kenyon cell bodies per hemisphere marked with white arrows. B: Five visible cell bodies of unidentified neurons marked with a blue circle in the left hemisphere. The neurons project into the lobula plate and the medulla. Strong fluorescence of cell bodies of the Kenyon cells projecting into the Mushroom bodies is visible. C: Unidentified neurons projecting into structures outside of the optic lobes especially the ventral lateral protocerebrum.

Optogenetic stimulation of DANs

on Saturday, September 2nd, 2023 11:09 | by

With the focus on dopaminergic neurons, I conducted two experiments with two different driver lines to see how the naive gustatory behavior in Drosophila larvae is affected.

The first cross I tested was R58E02-Gal4 x UAS-ChR2-XXL, which gave me the following results:

As seen in the figures, there was no effect under blue light.

For the second experiment I crossed TH-Gal4 x UAS-ChR2-XXL with these results:

With this experiment, there was an effect on gustatory behavior as there is a clear significant difference between the experimental group and the control group.

Preferences with higher salt concentration

The following plots show the results after I increased the salt concentration from 1,5M to 2,5M. It shows that the difference between the control groups and experimental group are not significant anymore.
