We have used a GAL4 enhancer-trap line driving the expression of a lacZ construct to examine the reorganisation of an identified group of proprioceptive sensory neurons during metamorphosis in Drosophila. The results show that whilst most larval sensory neurons degenerate during the first 24 hours of metamorphosis a segmentally repeated array of 6 neurons per segment persists into the adult stages to become functional adult neurons. These sensory neurons retain their axonal projections in the… CONTINUE READING
