It has been a while since I have updated this website. So, here it goes: I have been extremely busy with my classes and research project. After a few setbacks with integrating the supplement properly into the food medium, I finally succeeded by diluting the alpha-tocopherol with a 1:1 ratio of EtOH. The control groups for both OOC and AB-42 are doing well, albeit with some lateral medium shrinkage which trapped a few flies. However, the testing group with 100 micrograms of alpha-tocopherol is not doing as well as expected. The vast majority of AB-42 flies in the testing groups have died. The OOC testing groups are doing well, but not as well as the controls. Due to the supplement being oily, it has settled to the surface of the food medium despite dissolution in EtOH and frequent stirring as the food cooled. This extra-concentrated spot in the food could be killing the flies with an overdose.
