E-GEOD-6655 - Transcription profiling by array of Drosophila males after exposure to females
Released on 15 June 2008, last updated on 23 January 2014
I hypothesized that social interactions, such as those involved in reproductive behaviors, would lead to immediate and assayable changes in gene expression that may have important effects on individual reproductive success and fitness through alterations in physiology or via short-term or long-term changes in nervous system function. Experiment Overall Design: Four-day males were exposed or mock-exposed to a virgin female fly for 5 min. Exposed males that courted as well as mock-exposed males were collected for RNA extraction. Three samples for each treatment were hybridized to Affymetrix Drosophila Genome arrays for a total of 6 arrays.
