The Drosophila foraging Gene Mediates Adult Plasticity and Gene–Environment Interactions in Behaviour, Metabolites, and Gene Expression in Response to Food Deprivation

Figure 2

Rovers and sitters use energy stores differently.

Change in the heads of flies in (A) triacylglycerols (TAG) and (B) polysaccharides (PS) between Fed and food deprived (FD) states is higher in rovers than in mutant sitters (positive GEI interaction I>0) for TAG but lower for PS (negative GxE interaction I<0; both interactions significant, Table S2A has ANOVA details). Total signal/noise ratio levels determined using FTICR shown on vertical axis (Methods). FTICR measurements were done on rovers (forR) and mutant sitters (fors2).
