  • Control behaviors were measured in wild-type Canton S (CS), wild-type Berlin, 3-54, and 10-110 flies. The 3-54 and 10-110 mutant lines were in either the CS or the Berlin genetic backgrounds (labeled with the CS or the B superscript). A significant difference was found in shock reactivity of CS, 3-54CS, and 10-110CS flies [F (2, 21) = 19.2, P < 0.001; significant difference between CS and 10-110CS after Newman-Keuls post hoc test is shown, ***P < 0.001]. There was no significant difference between genotypes for avoidance of the odors MCH [F(2, 21) = 0.44, P = 0.65] and OCT [F(2, 21) = 0.83, P = 0.45]. There were significant differences in shock reactivity of flies in the Berlin background [F(3, 20) = 9.8, P < 0.001; significant difference between Berlin2 and 10-110B after Newman-Keuls post hoc test is shown, ***P < 0.001]. OCT avoidance behavior was significantly different between genotypes [F(3, 20) = 4.05, P = 0.02], but relied on differences between 3-54B and 10-110B. There were no significant differences between genotypes in the Berlin background for MCH avoidance [F(3, 20) = 0.68, P = 0.58]. Values are means ± SEMs.
