In(3LR)234 homozygous adults show an apparently normal sensitivity to ethanol as compared to controls: they shown an apparently normal time until sedation and a normal tolerance development following daily exposures; they also show normal ethanol-induced disinhibition, as shown by the increasing frequency of inter-male courtship upon continual exposure.
In(3LR)234 mutant larvae show a significantly reduced performance in aversive and appetitive olfactory learning (using amylacetate (AM) and benzaldehyde (BA)) compared to controls. Perception of AM, BA and sugar are similar to wild type, but salt perception is significantly reduced.
Homozygous viable, fertile and phenotypically wild type.
