Mechanisms of postecdysis-associated programmed cell death of peptidergic neurons in Drosophila melanogaster.


Crustacean cardioactive peptide (CCAP)-expressing neurons undergo programmed cell death (PCD) within 24 hours after adult eclosion. A subset of the doomed CCAP neurons in the ventral nerve cord also expressed the neuropeptide bursicon and thus are referred to as bursCCAP neurons. In this study, we undertook comprehensive genetic and transgenic analyses to… (More)
