DESCRIPTION

Pharyngeal interneuron. The soma of I4 is located on the dorsal side of the terminal bulb commissure. A branch from each side runs within the terminal bulb commissure and continues anteriorly to the nerve ring in the subventral nerve cords. On the ventral side of the nerve ring, these processes cross over to the other side. The right branch travels dorsally around the left half of the nerve ring and ends buried in pm1. The left branch travels dorsally around the right side of the ring and terminates at the level of the right subdorsal apex of the pharyngeal lumen.(Albertson D. J. and Thomson J. N., 1976).

Functions: Unknown or redundant (Avery L, and Thomas J. H., 1997).

Receptor expression: Unknown.
