AVFL, AVFR

Type: Interneuron
In MoW: AVF
Male Wiring Project: AVFL*, AVFR*
*can be AN1A, AN1B, AN2A, AN2B, AN3A, AN3B
In Wormbase: AVF, AVFL, AVFR
Lineage: P1.aaaa or W.aaa (stochastic choice for L/R)

Description: Postembryonically born interneurons, processes in ventral cord and ring, few synapses. In some animals posterior process of AVFR may extend into (R) dorsorectal commissure instead of ending in preanal ganglion (Hall and Russell, 1991).
