Activity Paradigm to Induce Drosophila Larval Neuromuscular Junction Growth
Cold Spring Harbor Protocols (Impact Factor: 4.63). 08/2010; 2010(8):pdb.prot5473. DOI: 10.1101/pdb.prot5473
This article describes a method for spaced stimulation of Drosophila motor neurons. The neurons can be stimulated for short periods of time (~2 h) and then fixed (or imaged live). The method allows one to examine the immediate effects of altering activity on synaptic protein localization as well as neuromuscular junction structure and function.
