We have quantified the number of Pros expressing cells (Pros+) and neuronal cells (Elav+) in the third instar larval AMC of wild type (V14) and V1 mutants. We distinguish two types of Pros+ cells on the basis of their size: large and small cells. Some small Pros+ cells express Elav markers and are probably differentiated neurons. In V1 mutants, no more Pros protein is detected in the larval AMC, but the number of neurons remains unchanged.
