DNeuroFIG 3: Amphid cilia in L2 and dauer larvae.
A. Amphid channels in nondauers contain 10 tightly bundled sensory processes (distal segments of the cilia) from 8 neurons, due to branching of ADF and ADL.
B. In dauers, the cilia from ASG and ASI are absent from the amphid channels. A & B. The upper left panel depicts a lateral schematic of the approximate position (line) of the transverse TEM section showing the amphid cilia in the upper right panels. Blue lettering in the electron micrographs indicates the identity of each process (archival prints from the Riddle lab). The lower panels illustrate the cilia identities and boundaries within the amphid channel. These relative positions of individual cilia are quite reproducible from animal to animal (Ward et al., 1975).
