Title: Is there a link between aversiveness and toxicity of molecules in Drosophila?

Place: S248 (京都大学宇治キャンパス生存圏研究所)

Day: 29 Oct 2018 (Monday)

Time: 11:00am- (30min talk + question time)

 Abstract: In all animals, the gustatory system gives information to predict the quality of the food. Sweetness molecules stimulate feeding as they usually provide energy, while bitter molecules are generally avoided as they might be noxious. Avoiding bitter molecules thus protects animals against intoxication. How efficient is this prediction? Actually, this is difficult to test experimentally since a negative impact on fitness might be due either to toxicity (animals stop eating because they are sick) or to bitterness (animals will prefer to starve than to eat). We have recently completed a series of experiments to try to disentangle these two effects using Drosophila as an experimental model. We selected a panel of seven substances like alkaloids or synthetic molecules which are detected by bitter-sensitive taste cells. We monitored their effects on the lifespan of flies when mixed to food or when injected into the abdomen. We then developed an system to monitor the quantity of food ingested by flies over the lifespan of flies in no-choice conditions using capillary feeders. Our observations suggest that there is no strict relation between toxicity and bitterness, suggesting that molecules bitter for insects could be used to deter them from feeding on crops or animals.
