2001). , 1993; Smith, Sirot, Wolfner, Hosken, & Wedell, 2012). , 2006; Wolfner, 2009). A recent and comprehensive review outlines the various SFPs that have been identified in many insect species including D. melanogaster (Avila, Sirot, Laflamme, Rubinstein, & Wolfner, 2011). 40 Meghan Laturney and Jean-Christophe Billeter Although over 100 SFPs have been identified, the relationship between most of them and the female response has not been investigated. Here, we review the literature examining the components of the ejaculate and the consequence on postcopulatory female behavior.

However, females mated to these male showed no reduction in progeny indicating that sperm was stored normally. Therefore, an another hypothesis is that the product could be this gene product could be exerting its effects on short-term female receptivity through the mating plug acting on stretch receptors in the posterior end of the uterus, making her unwilling to remate. Alternatively, PEBII could also act as a pheromone acting upon the central nervous system of the female to reduce remating via a plug-independent pathway.

However, recent work on the spin gene offers a new methodology to delve deeper in this question, which we hope will resurrect the study of those other female receptivity genes. , 1997). Like many of the genes mentioned above, spin affects female receptivity. Its wide expression in glia, neurons, and reproductive organs does not give a clear insight in the tissues controlling receptivity. To identify the central nervous system neurons that control sexual receptivity, Sakurai et al. (2013) produced mosaic animals in which a small number of spinmutant homozygous cells were created at random in an otherwise spin heterozygous brain.
