E-MTAB-3546 - Genome-wide transcriptome effects of reproductive diapause in Drosophila melanogaster
Submitted on 30 September 2013, last updated on 20 January 2016, released on 20 January 2016
The study describes differential expression of genes in adult female flies (Canton S) kept for three weeks in reproductive diapause, compared to ones kept in normal conditions. It discusses signal pathways that are activated or inactivated during diapause and how this relates to the general diapause phenotype with arrested vitellogenesis, extended lifespan, decreased somatic senescence, increased stress resistance and reallocated energy resources.
