Figure 8

Dorsal view of the migration patterns of the Q neuroblast descendants. QL and QR (open circles) are initially located directly opposite each other, but early migrations (not shown) shift QR anteriorly and QL posteriorly (A). The subsequent migratory behaviors of Q descendants are under the control of HOM-C genes. (BF) Migrations dependent on mab-5 (yellow) and lin-39 (red), and migrations independent of these gene activities (gray) are indicated by colored arrows; (D) effects of mab-5 expression induced using heat shock during the anterior migration of the QR descendants.
