Sexual Behavior: Dietary Food Switch Induced by Sex

Eric Kubli. Curr Biol.

Abstract

Pregnancy in humans induces cravings for special food: the same occurs in Drosophila females. New work now shows that mating throws a nutritional switch in favor of a high-protein diet and that modulation of nutritional balance depends on the sex peptide receptor and involves neuronal TOR-S6 kinase signaling.
