Immunoreactive ELAV in the nervous system of Bombyx mori

It is believed that ELAV is an exclusive neuronal marker and necessary for differentiation of the nervous system in the developing stages of Drosophila melanogaster. We applied that the immunoreactive distribution of this ELAV protein in the nervous system of Bombyx mori. ELAV immunoreactivity in the brain and ventral ganglia and its amount is increasing as go on developing stage, larva to adult. This means that ELAV protein play a vital role as neurosecretory material.
