The transgenic flies were fed with a vegetable diet, and green fluorescent protein (GFP) signals in the salivary gland nuclei of the third-instar larvae were detected. The GFP intensity was analyzed using the MetaMorph software and was subtracted by that of the background signal; then the GFP intensity of the vegetable group relative to that of the control group was calculated. for each sample. . . Not significant.
