Abstract

Sites in the brain that show functional, sexual dimorphism in courtship behavior have been mapped at high resolution in male/female mosaics of Drosophila melanogaster. The sex mosaics were produced by enhancer-trap expression of GAL4 driving the female-spliced form of the transformer gene (tra), revealing sites in the dorsal brain, lateral protocerebrum, suboesophageal, thoracic and abdominal ganglia, and suggesting the importance of cross-talk between these regions in the implementation of the courtship sequence.
