Type: Interneuron
In MoW: AVH
Male Wiring Project: AVHL*, AVHR*
*can be AN1A, AN1B, AN2A, AN2B, AN3A, AN3B
In Wormbase: AVH, AVHL, AVHR
Lineage: AB alapaaaaa, AB alappapaa
Location: Lateral ganglia of head
Description: Neurons, mainly presynaptic in ring and postsynaptic in ventral cord.
Neurotransmitter/ Neuropeptide:
Innexin expression:
- INX-12 (in early larva)
- UNC-9
(Altun et al., 2009)
Receptor expression:
- GLR-4; glutamate receptor subunit
- SER-2; tyramine receptor (a splice variant)
- Possibly GGR-1; GABA-A/glycine receptor-like protein
(Tsalik et al., 2003; Brockie et al., 2001; Fujiwara et al., 1996)
Function:

AVHL (AB alapaaaaa) development in the embryo.
Dorsal view. Bottom is left side of the embryo. Spheres indicate individual nuclei. Black sphere: ancestors of AVHL (since last AVHL ancestor has not yet gone through its final division, the black sphere seen at the end of this movie is still AB alapaaaa); dark grey spheres: apoptotic cells; other cells follow the WA color code (after they acquire specific cell or tissue identities). 0 min is fertilization. Click on the movie for higher resolution rendition (by A. Santella & Z. Bao).
