• muscle
  • Thus, these genes appear to encode components of a nicotinic receptor that can promote egg laying but is not necessary for egg-laying muscle contraction. (genetics.org)
  • In addition, since expression of functional unc-29 in muscle cells restored levamisole sensitivity under some but not all conditions, both neuronal and muscle cell UNC-29 receptors are likely to contribute to the regulation of egg-laying behavior. (genetics.org)
  • basis
  • however, the genetic and molecular basis for cholinergic neurotransmission in the egg-laying circuitry is not well understood. (genetics.org)
