  • Thus, the adhesive ephrin-Eph interaction at the NMJ could be a noticeable mechanism through which contact-dependent bidirectional signaling contributes to development of the pre - and postsynaptic specializations.

  • Mutations in either fsn-1 or glo-4 alone yield mild presynaptic defects, whereas mutations in both are similar to mutations in rpm-1, suggesting that RPM-1 relies on both of these factors in parallel to organize NMJ presynaptic boutons.

  • In addition, our findings indicate that RPM-1 has a distinct role in organizing the presynaptic face of NMJ synapses in motorneurons but not central synapses in interneurons.

  • NMJ boutons from lin-10 mutants were indistinguishable from those in wild type, and rpm-1 lin-10 double mutants were indistinguishable from those in rpm-1 single mutants.

  • If dFMR1 over-expression were required for the Ago2 null phenotype, then we would expect that Ago251B, dfmr13 double mutant animals would resemble dfmr1 double mutant larvae did indeed display a dfmr1 null-like phenotype with respect to the gross morphology of the NMJ.

  • The dfmr1 null (dfmr13) larvae displayed an opposite NMJ phenotype in comparison to the larvae that over-express dfmr1.
