DESCRIPTION

Neurons, processes run with amphid neuron dendrites but lack ciliated ending.

Functions: Regulate social feeding behavior along with PQR, URX and AQR (Coates J. C. and de Bono M., 2002).

Receptor expression: Express glutamate receptor subunit, GLR-4 (Brockie P.J. et al 2001). Express neuropeptide Y receptor like protein, NPR-1 (Coates J. C. and de Bono M., 2002). Express a splice variant of the tyramine receptor SER-2 (Tsalik E. L. et al, 2003). Possibly express the dopamine receptor DOP-1 (Sanyal S. et al, 2004).
