Neurons and genes involved in chemical sensitivity in nematodes
International Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, CNR, via G. Marconi 10, 80125 Napoli, Italy.
Organelles and neurons of nematodes involved in sensing chemical signals present in the environment are described. Laser ablation of neurons has helped assign them a specific function. Genetic mutational analysis has led to the identification of genes controlling the behaviour of the worms and/or some cellular properties of the chemosensory neurons. Some conclusions on the general organization and functioning of chemoreception in nematodes can be drawn.
Key words: chemoreception / nematodes / behavior / avoidance / amphid
