E-MTAB-1607 - Transcription profiling by array of Drosophila melanogaster male flies to identify transcriptome changes during cold acclimation
Released on 1 May 2014, last updated on 3 June 2014
Experiment was designed to identify transcriptome changes during cold acclimation of Drosophila melanogaster male flies. Resistance to cold is often measured by recovery times from chill coma, which is induced almost immediately upon exposure to low but non-freezing temperatures (~0C), with flies becoming immobilised and losing motor activity. This paralysis is also ostensibly reversible upon return to normal temperatures, although again there can be longer term effects. Acclimation for increased cold resistance requires exposure periods ranging from hours or days to several weeks at low temperatures between 0C to 12C, and samples were taken during the cold acclimation period (1 hr, 2 hr, 3 hr, 6 hr, 12 hr, 24 hr, 36 hr and 48 hr).
