Figure 2. A subset of serotonergic neurons directly innervating the prothoracic gland.
 
 
In the 3rd instar larva of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, the prothoracic gland (PG, ecdysteroid-producing organ, magenta) and serotonergic neurons (green) were visualized by immunohistochemistry. The PG is a ball-shaped endocrine organ, consisting of about 50 cells. Serotonergic neurons extend from the brain to the PG, secreting serotonin for ecdysteroid biosynthesis.
