    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Many studies have addressed the effects of adult diet on gene expression in Drosophila melanogaster, however, little is known about how developmental diet influences adult gene expression, and how this interacts with adult dietary conditions. We found that developmental and adult diet exert largely independent effects on gene expression, with the effect of adult diet being considerably larger.We did find effects of developmental diet on the transcriptome that persist into middle and old-age. Most of the genes affected show no correlation with the observed phenotypic effects of larval diet on lifespan, however, in each sex we identified a cluster of ribosome, transcription, and translation-related genes whose expression was altered across the lifespan and negatively correlated with lifespan.
