Different subsets of Drosophila melanogaster's clock neurons are characterized by their specific functions in daily locomotor rhythms and the differences in their neurotransmitter composition. We investigated the function of the neuropeptide F (NPF) immunoreactive clock neurons in the rhythmic locomotor behavior of adult flies. We newly identified the fifth s-LN(v) and a subset of the l-LN(v)s as NPF-positive in addition to the three LN(d)s that have been described previously. We then… CONTINUE READING
