In this work, we studied the roles of Drosophila NOMPC in mechanotransduction. Here we report our findings that the previously reported NOMPC-dependent adapting mechanoreceptor current (MRC) responses in external bristle mechanosensory organs are chloride-dependent, and NOMPC is likely a key component of Drosophila mechanotransduction channels. These findings provide important clues toward understanding the mechanism of mechanosensation in the fruit fly.
