Tissue-specific inhibition of the expression of the D2-like dopamine receptor gene (DD2R) in the corpus allatum (CA), which is a gland that synthesizes the juvenile hormone (JH), was tested for effect on alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and the intensity of the ALP response to heat stress (stress reactivity) in female Drosophila melanogaster. ALP activity and ALP stress reactivity in transgenic females with lower DD2R expression in the CA were higher than in control flies. A pharmacological elevation in JH increased ALP activity in females of the control strains. DD2R was assumed to mediate the inhibitory effect of dopamine of JH synthesis in the CA of D. melanogaster.
