In the sea slug Tritonia diomedea, mucociliary crawling is controlled partly by two pairs of bilaterally symmetrical neurons located in the pedal ganglia. These neurons, known as the Pedal 5 and Pedal 6 cells, produce a class of neuropeptides called TPeps. Using immunohistochemistry we identified TPep-like immunoreactive (TPep-LIR) neurons in diverse nudibranch species. All species examined had 2-7 large, TPep-LIR cells located in each pedal ganglion. The absolute size of the largest TPep-LIR… CONTINUE READING
