Fig. 6.

Asymmetric AMPA receptor expression in the motor ganglion. a AMPA receptor (AMPAR) is expressed in the left motor ganglion of late-dechorionated larvae. Also shown are VACHT-expressing cells, which are found on both left and right sides of the MG. b, c Asymmetric AMPAR expression is disrupted by early dechorionation. Phenotypes include reversals (b) and bilateral expression (c). Panels dh show the same larva, triple labeled for AMPAR, Vsx, and Mnx. Asymmetric AMPAR is coexpressed with Vsx, but not Mnx, a marker of motor neurons. Dashed lines indicate midline. Scale bar in a is 20 μm and 10 μm in d
