DESCRIPTION

Interneurons, project along ventral cord to ring.

Functions: Along with PVPR, PVQL pioneers the left hand ventral cord. This function appears to be a joint action of these two processes (R. Durbin Ph.D. thesis.1987 Chapter 3, section 3.5).

Receptor expression: Express glutamate receptor subunits, GLR-1 and GLR-5 (Brockie P.J. et al 2001). Express G protein-coupled serpentine receptor, SRA-6 (Troemel E. et al 1995). Express the dopamine receptor DOP-1 (Tsalik E. L. et al, 2003). Suggested to express GABA-A/glycine receptor-like protein GGR-1 (Fujiwara et al, 1996) .
