Sensory neuron (Thermosensory) AB alpppapav
AB praaaapav
Lateral ganglia in head Express neuropeptide-like proteins, NLP-7 and NLP-21 (Nathoo A. et al 2001). AMsh and AMso
DESCRIPTION

Amphid neurons with finger-like ciliated endings embedded in the amphid sheath cell.

Functions: Involved in thermosensation. Laser ablation of the AFD pair makes a significant portion of the animals athermotactic. See model below. (Mori I. and Ohshima Y. 1995).

Receptor expression: Not known
