Relationship between bmm expression and glucose contents in diets. The transgenic flies were fed with diet containing different amounts of glucose, and the salivary glands of the third-instar larvae were observed by fluorescence microscopy. GFP signal intensities measured by the MetaMorph software (e) showed that flies fed 2.5% glucose (a) showed stronger signals than flies fed 5% (b), 10% (c), and 20% (d) glucose, respectively. Real-time PCRs were used to measure the endogenous bmm mRNA expression levels of transgenic flies (f). for each treatment. The error bars represent the standard deviation. .
