Potential Opportunistic Pathogens Isolated from Drosophila melanogaster
. Bacteria and fungi isolated from Drosophila melanogaster
included opportunistic pathogens of humans and animals, including Klebsiella oxytoca, Alcaligenes faecalis, Microbacterium oxydans, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Aspergillus fumigatus, A.flavus, and A.
Third instar Drosophila melanogaster
larvae were dissected in freshly prepared phosphate buffer (PBS) and then fixed with 4% formaldehyde (Sigma-Aldrich, United States) for 20 min, washed with PBS, blocked in blocking buffer (Visual Protein Blocking Buffer) for 1 hr, incubated with primary antibody nc82 specific to Bruchpilot (1: 200, DSHB) overnight at 4[degrees]C and then with secondary antibodies Cy-3 (1:200, Jackson ImmunoResearch) and with antibodies specific to HRP, conjugated with Alexa Fluor 488 (1 : 400, Jackson ImmunoResearch) for 2 hr at room temperature.

The Drosophila melanogaster
Genetic Reference Panel.
The results of this study indicate that the coconut oil, when added to the diet of the Drosophila melanogaster
, causes several changes in its metabolism as observed in studies based in mammal models .
For example, mitochondrial expression of a transgenic catalase is more protective against PQ than cytosolic expression in Drosophila melanogaster
(11) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (12); deficiency of the isoform of superoxide dismutase of the mitochondrial matrix results in hypersensitivity to PQ in mice (7) and in Drosophila (13); mitochondrial swelling is one of the earliest ultrastructural changes on PQ exposure in vivo in cultured human lung cells (14).
