in Caenorhabditis elegans

【Significance】
Food deprivation changes chemotaxis behavior in Caenorhabditis elegans

Exploring for food is important in food-deprived condition. Chemotaxis is one of the important behaviors to search food. Here, we show the change of chemotactic strategy by food deprivation. The worms with 1-h food-deprivation change the weathervane strategy. On the other hand, 6-h food deprived animals change the pirouette strategy. These results demonstrate that worms change chemotactic strategy different way depending on period of food deprivation.
