Survival curve of wild type (Canton S) Drosophila under various dosages of BMAA.
Five day-old male flies were reared in 1, 3, 5, and 10 mM BMAA diluted in 3% sucrose for up to 30 days (10 flies per vial). The 50% survival time for 1, 3, 5, and 10 mM BMAA was 19, 14, 10, and 4 days, respectively. The sham (0 mM BMAA) treated flies did not show any toxicity during the observation period. The statistics was performed using One-way ANOVA analysis of variance in Prizm software, p
