Bidirectional regulation of thermotaxis by glutamate transmissions in Caenorhabditis elegans

By Noriyuki Ohnishi, Atsushi Kuhara, Fumiya Nakamura, Yoshifumi Okochi and Ikue Mori


This paper provides a molecular and genetic analysis of the neural circuitry that regulates the migration of Caenorhabditis elegans towards either warmer or colder temperature and reveals an important role of glutamate signalling in this process
