Expression of klgGD2555
under the control of Scer\GAL4elav.PU
results in significantly impaired long term memory performance 24 hours after spaced training in an aversive olfactory association paradigm.
Adults expressing klgGD2555
under the control of Scer\GAL4elav.PLu
(in the presence of Dcr-2Scer\UAS.cDa
to increase the efficiency of RNAi) do not show a significant defect in avoidance of noxious temperature (46[o]C) compared to control flies.
