The development of Drosophila midline glia during larval and pupal stages was characterized by localizing beta-gal expression in enhancer trap lines, as well as with BrdU incorporation and pulse-chase experiments. At hatching about 40 to 50 glial cells are present along the midline of the ventral nerve cord (2 to 3 dorsal and 1 to 2 ventral cells per(More)
