is expressed in a subset of head and tail neurons. The only cell type that reliably coexpressed mod-1
reporter transgenes are AIB neurons. In addition, mod-1
::mCherry expression was seen in RME neurons. By examining larvae at the L3 stage or younger the mod-1
reporter was expressed strongly in all body wall muscles. In L4 larvae and adults this body wall muscle expression was much reduced, but still detectable. mod-1
::mCherry was also expressed in ventral cord neurons, specifically in both VD and DD classes of GABAergic motor neurons. The mod-1
reporter is not expressed in all 26 GABAergic neurons - in the head the only overlap between the mod-1
reporter expression is in RME interneurons.
