Defective learning in mutants of the Drosophila gene for a regulatory subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase.

Abstract:

Disruptions of a Drosophila gene encoding a regulatory subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase homologous to mammalian RIbeta (dPKA-RI) were targeted to the first (noncoding) exon of dPKA-RI via site-selected P element mutagenesis. Flies homozygous for either of two mutant alleles showed specific defects in olfactory learning but not in subsequent memory decay. In contrast, olfactory acuity and shock reactivity, component behaviors required for normal odor avoidance learning, were normal in ...
