Expression pattern of V24 in the third instar larval CNS. The Pros (A) and Elav (B) expression pattern as well as the mitotic activity (C) of V24 are shown as compared to the previously reported pattern of V14, V13 and V1 alleles [8]. Although V24 and V13 present the same expression pattern in the AMC, the situation is different in the CNS. As it can be seen Pros (A) and Elav labeling (B) are distinctive for both alleles in the region delimiting the two hemispheres and the Optic lobes (OLs). As compared to V13, V24 presents a decrease of the staining in this region for these two markers (B). In ventral nerve cord (VNC), V13 shows an important hyperplasia (arrowheads) due to an excess of neurons. In V24, the VNC extremity presents a bifida aspect (arrow). The mitotic activity, revealed by anti-pHistone-H3 (H3p) (C) is strongly increased in V24, especially in the OLs.
