Sensory neuron AB alpppppppa
AB praaappppa
Lateral ganglia of head Express neuropeptide-like protein NLP-3 (Nathoo A. et al 2001). AMsh and AMso
DESCRIPTION

Amphid neurons, single ciliated endings, project into ring via commissure from ventral ganglion, make diverse synaptic connections in ring neuropil. Also take up FITC.

Functions: Controls exit from dauer stage (Bargmann C.I. and Horvitz H.R. 1991).

Receptor expression: Express mammalian capsaicin receptor-like protein OSM-9 (Colbert H.A. et al 1997). Express G protein-coupled serpentine receptors, SRE-1 (Troemel E. et al 1995). Express transmembrane guanylyl cyclase DAF-11 (Birnby D.A. et al 2000).
