Ubiquitous downregulation of InR gene expression affects stress associated hormone metabolism in Drosophila females

Ubiquitous downregulation of InR gene expression affects stress associated hormone metabolism in... The effect of the ubiquitous downregulation of insulin receptor (InR) gene expression on the metabolism of juvenile hormone (JH) and dopamine (DA) in young females of D. melanogaster under normal conditions and heat stress is studied. The level of JH degradation and alkaline phosphatase activity (ALP, an enzyme regulating DA synthesis) were used as indicators of JH and DA levels, respectively. We demonstrated that, under normal conditions, the ubiquitous inhibition of the InR gene expression in D. melanogaster females induced an increase in the JH degradation and ALP activity. As we have already shown, this is indicative of the decrease in the concentration of the above hormones. It was also found that the total inactivation of InR does not affect the initiation of JH and DA metabolic system response to heat stress; however, it does affect its intensity. Thus, the involvement of the insulin signaling pathway in the regulation of the JH and DA metabolism in Drosophila females was demonstrated in vivo under normal and stress conditions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
