Larval writhing behavior in response to noxious heat. Video showing an individual ppk1GAL4/+ control larva touched at midbody length with a probe heated to 42°C. The wild-type control larva shows a strong writhing behavior response as previously reported [33]. Subsequent frames show an individual ppk1GAL4/UAS-TNT-G larva exposed to the same noxious heat probe at the indicated timepoint. Transgenic inactivation of mdIV neurons in the ppk1GAL4/UAS-TNT-G larva causes a complete suppression of the writhing response. Comparison of noxious heat induced writhing with UVC(H) induced writhing (Additional file 1) shows that the two responses are very similar if not identical.
