T1 sensillum responses to cis-vaccenyl acetate (cVA) measured by single-sensillum recordings. (A) Action potentials recorded from CS and Est-6° T1 sensilla stimulated for 3 s with solvent (left) or cVA (right). Horizontal bars indicate the duration of stimulus delivery. (B) Dose-response curves for T1 sensilla from CS, Est-6° and Rescue male flies: spike frequencies during the stimulation (0.5 s and 3 s), as well as for 9 s following the stimulus were calculated relatively to the prestimulus frequency. Mean ± SEM; N ≥ 8 for each data point. Student's t test, *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01.
