Afferent Induction of Olfactory Glomeruli Requires N-Cadherin

  title={Afferent Induction of Olfactory Glomeruli Requires N-Cadherin},
  author={Thomas Hummel and S.Lawrence Zipursky},
Drosophila olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) elaborate a precise internal representation of the external olfactory world in the antennal lobe (AL), a structure analagous to the vertebrate olfactory bulb. ORNs expressing the same odorant receptor innervate common targets in a highly organized neuropilar structure inside the AL, the glomerulus. During normal development, ORNs target to specific regions of the AL and segregate into subclass-specific aggregates called protoglomeruli prior to… CONTINUE READING
