Drosophila Optogenetic Service

Optogenetics is the use of photosensitive molecules and genetic engineering to regulate signaling molecules, proteins and cellular activities in vivo, allowing for precise spatial and temporal control. It is often used in Drosophila for studies such as Neuroscience and Cell Biology. Optogenetics has powerful flexibility and reversibility compared to other genetic systems, allowing activation and reduction of target proteins and signaling pathways under any spatio-temporal conditions, which is very widely used. Thereby, it is currently the preferred technique for neurochemical and signaling pathway studies in Drosophila.

With an advanced technical team and optical research technology platform, CD BioSciences offers a total research service for optogenetics in Drosophila and cell lines, providing customized solutions from project design, selection of photosensitive proteins, genetic engineering manipulation, optimization of optogenetic systems, spatio-temporal regulation and signal collection and analysis.

Our Services

We are committed to solving technical barriers and accelerating our clients' cutting-edge research. If you have any additional requirements, please contact us for more details.

  • Drosophila Optogenetic Excitation/Inhibition
    CD BioSciences provides a holistic service for optogenetic excitation and inhibition. manipulating processes such as neuronal activity, signaling and protein interactions with the help of optogenetic techniques.
  • Drosophila Chromophore-Assisted Laser Inactivation (CALI)
    CALI is an optogenetic technique that uses photoactivation to directly inactivate proteins by genetic engineering or antibody targeting, allowing to study the dynamic processes of various signaling pathways and protein functions in a precise manner in space and time.


  • Neural signaling pathway studies, such as the dopamine release pathway in the Drosophila central nervous system
  • Neuropathology studies, e.g., diseases caused by protein misfolding
  • Stem cell, developmental and tissue regeneration, e.g., Drosophila midgut stem cell signaling pathways
  • Nutritional and metabolic homeostasis, e.g., the effect of Drosophila chemoreceptors on feeding behavior
