Transcription profiling of Drosophila abdomen from females mated with sex peptide null or sex peptide producing males


ABSTRACT: Comparison of females mated to males null for Sex-Peptide (SP0, Liu, H. and E. Kubli, Sex-peptide is the molecular basis of the sperm effect in Drosophila melanogaster. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2003. 100(17): p. 9929-33) or to control, Sex-Peptide producing, males. Comparisons were made at 3 and 6 hours after mating, in dissected Abdomen parts.

Seminal fluid proteins (Sfps) alter female behaviour and physiology and can mediate sexual conflict. In Drosophila melanogaster, a single Sfp, the sex peptide (SP), triggers remarkable post-mating responses in females, including altered fecundity, feeding, immunity and sexual receptivity. These effects can favour the evolutionary interests of males while generating costs in females. We tested the hypothesis that SP is an upstream master-regulator able to induce diverse phenotypes through efficie  ...[more]
