Drunken Fruit Flies Reveal Molecular Pathway Regulating Sensitivity To Alcohol

lar the fruit flies' behavioral response to alcohol is to the human response, said Heberlein, this may well happen, for the similarity indicates that the genes that regulate these behaviors have not changed significantly in the evolutionary process, suggesting a common molecular pathway may be in place.

The UCSF laboratory, part of UCSF's new Neurobiology of Addiction Center, which includes the Gallo Center, is the only institute in the world using Drosophila as a system for studying the genetics of alcoholism. The UCSF study was funded by grants from National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the Alcoholic Beverage Medical Research Foundation and the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation.
