Effect of shortened UAS-dNSF2E/Q expression on synaptic physiology. Larvae were initially reared at 30°C (Gal4 on) and then shifted to 25°C (Gal4 off) and the EJP amplitudes were measured at the third instar stage. If larvae were exposed to 25°C for the 2–4 days prior to emerging as third instar larvae (expressed for 1 day group), their EJPs were indistinguishable from larvae who were raised entirely at 30°C (no expression group). Letters within the bars represent statistically similar groups determined with ANOVA (p < 0.05) and the Dunnett post hoc comparison of all conditions to full UAS-dNSF2E/Q expression. When reared at 30°C larvae reached the third instar stage sooner and so there are fewer days in the analysis.
