      Removal of DopR results in decreased hind leg grooming in Drosophila, as substantiated by quantitation of dye remaining on mutant and RNAi animals vs. controls and direct scoring of behavioral events. DopR protein is broadly expressed in the neuropil of the thoracic ganglion and overlaps with TH-positive dopaminergic neurons. Broad neuronal expression of dopamine receptor in mutant animals restored normal grooming behaviors. These data provide evidence for the role of DopR in potentiating hind leg grooming behaviors in the thoracic ganglion of adult Drosophila. This is a remarkable juxtaposition to the considerable role of D1 family dopamine receptors in rodent grooming, and future investigations of evolutionary relationships of circuitry may be warranted.

      Subsets of the somata dorsal and lateral to the mushroom body calyces responsive to food also respond to variations in food type and value. Similarly, subsets of the genes expressed in the mushroom bodies and responsive to food also respond to variations in food type and value.
