DESCRIPTION

A bipolar pharyngeal interneuron. Its shorter process travels posteriorly, crosses from left to right subdorsally between pm6 and pm7, and then ends with a free subcuticular ending between pm5 and pm6. The longer process runs anteriorly from the cell body to enter the nerve ring from the dorsal nerve cord, where it terminates on the dorsal side (Albertson D. J. and Thomson J. N., 1976).

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

Receptor expression: Express glutamate receptor subunits, GLR-7 , GLR-8 (Brockie P.J. et al 2001).
