Macrochaetes (large bristles) are sensor organs of the Drosophila peripheral nervous system with a function of mechanoreceptors. An adult mechanoreceptor comprises four specialized cells: shaft (trichogen), socket (tormogen), neuron, and glial cell (thecogen). All these cells originate from a single cell, the so-called sensor organ precursor (SOP) cell.(More)
Morphogenesis of drosophila macrochaete functioning as mechanoreceptors includes several steps, each of which has their own genetic support described in terms of gene nets. Mechanoreceptor develops from one parental cell (Sensory Organ Precursor cell—SOP cell), the determination of which has a critical role in macrochaete development. The highest content of(More)
The drosophila macrochaetes act as mechanoreceptors, the sensory organs of the peripheral nervous system. Each mechanoreceptor consists of four specialized cells, namely, the shaft, socket, neuron, and sheath. All these cells develop from a single cell referred to as the sensory organ precursor (SOP) cell. The SOP cell segregates from the surrounding cells(More)
