Additional Information

Drives expression in peptidergic neurons.

Scer\GAL4dimm-929 drives expression in peptidergic neurons in the adult brain.

The dimm reporter is co-expressed with ITP in ipc-1 and ipc-2a neurons. Three of the ipc-2 neurons do not express the reporter. Coexpression of dimm reported and Tk is also observed in the ipc-1 and ipc-2a neurons.

Scer\GAL4dimm-929 is expressed in the pupal Pdf neuron close to tritocerebrum, which survive in newly eclosed adults but rapidly undergo apoptosis shortly thereafter.

Scer\GAL4dimm-929 is expressed in a series of lateral abdominal neurons, and in some insulin-like producing cells (IPCs).

Co-localisation of Scer\GAL4dimm-929 and Phm is observed in most of the 200 Scer\GAL4dimm-929-positive neurons of the central nervous system, corpus cardiacum, 10-20 midgut cells, peritracheal cells and lateral Kolbchen lbd neurons. Co-localisation with FMRFa, Crz, Fur1 or CCAP proteins is detected in subsets or neurons in the central nervous system.

In larva, expressed in peptidergic neurons of the CNS, intrinsic cells of the ring gland, salivary glands, fat body, patches of the epidermis, the PM peritracheal cells and a few other scattered locations; very restricted expression in the imaginal discs; no detectable expression in the skeletal muscles or the adbominal histoblasts.

Expression is observed in peritracheal cells prior to second to third instar larval ecdysis.
