Additional Information

Drives expression in multidendritic and dendritic arborizing neurons.

Scer\GAL4109(2)80 drives expression in all dendritic arborizing neurons in pharate adults.

Scer\GAL4109(2)80 drives expression in the multidendritic neurons of the PNS (bipolar and class I-IV) and in multiple medial and lateral cells of the ventral nerve cord. Expression in the CNS is restricted to a few cells in the brain.

In late embryos, in PNS dorsal clusters of segments A1-A7, Scer\GAL4109(2)80 drives high levels of expression in all 6 md (multidendritic) neurons, one bd (bipolar dendrite) neuron, and one td (tracheal innervating) neuron; expression not observed in es (external sensory) neurons; high levels of expression in PNS lateral and ventral clusters, and in the procephalic neurogenic region.
