“While dopamine levels change as a function of development, the most significant changes in dopamine levels occur coincident with eclosion and cuticular tanning, which are events that preceded these observations Corazonin neuronal alterations impact the levels of dopamine.”
“In the fly Drosophila melanogaster, neuronal plasticity of synaptic terminals in the first optic neuropil, or lamina, depends on early visual experience within a critical period after eclosion .”
“Due to the eye-specific expression of MJDtrQ78, cytotoxicity is manifested as disruption of eye morphology, depigmentation, and reduction in eye size and is observed in the progeny almost immediately after eclosion”
“After eclosion, flies were maintained on supplemented food for approximately 24 h, and eye phenotypes were inspected microscopically.”
“Survival was determined by successful development and eclosion as adults after larvae were cooled to − 30°C at 0. 5°C/min, removed to room temperature and placed individually on rearing medium and allowed to develop at 17°C, c.”
