Sample text

The brain center controlling female receptivity has been broadly mapped using sex mosaic animals called gynandromorphs. In D. melanogaster, individuals with two X chromosomes with a normal complement of autosomes are female, whereas individuals with one X chromosome are male. Genetic tricks can be employed so that female embryos randomly lose one of their X chromosome in some cells during development, becoming a mosaic of male and female tissues (Hall, 1979). Such gynandromorphs can be tested for their receptivity to copulation with males, and then sacrificed to determine which portion of their nervous system has to be female for the fly to be receptive.

The majority of studies investigating the mechanisms of the PMR have centered on postmating receptivity and egg-related behaviors (ovulation and ovipositioning). Within the seminal fluid are seminal fluid proteins (SFPs), a term which includes all the proteins produced in the male reproductive tract and transferred during copulation. A subclass of Neurogenetics of Female Reproductive Behaviors in Drosophila melanogaster 39 SFP is accessory gland proteins (Acps), which includes only those molecules made within the accessory gland (AG).

Based on this finding, the two different biological events were labeled the “copulation effect” for the short-term reduction of receptivity and the “sperm effect” for the long-term reduction in receptivity as it requires the presence of sperm (Manning, 1967). Investigation into the molecular basis of these two responses uncovered a vast array of molecules transferred to females with varying outcomes. Sex peptide (SP) was first isolated from seminal fluid and identified as the regulator of the PMR in 1988.
