|PubMed Abstract||In vivo time-lapse multiphoton microscopy was used to analyze the remodeling of the dendritic arborizing (da) sensory neuron known as dorsal dendritic arborizing neuron E (ddaE) during metamorphosis. After its larval processes have been removed, the cell body of ddaE repositions itself on the body wall between 25 and 40 hr after puparium formation (APF) and begins its adult outgrowth at 40 hr APF. The scaffold of the arbor is laid down between 40 and 54 hr APF, when growth is characterized by high filopodial activity at both terminal and interstitial positions and by branch retraction along with branch establishment. Later in development, filopodial activity remains high but is confined to terminal branches, and branch retraction is no longer seen. Treatment with the insect hormone juvenile hormone (JH), a key regulator of metamorphosis, alters the shape and complexity of the adult dendritic tree in a time-dependent manner. Early treatments with juvenile hormone mimic (JHm) appear to repress extension programs and maintain retraction programs. With later JHm treatments, extension programs appear normal, but retraction programs are maintained beyond their normal time. The JH treatments show the importance of retraction programs in establishing the overall arbor shape.|
