In flies, the axons in peripheral nervous system are covered by 3 glial layer- Wrapping glia (WG), Sub-perineurial glia (SPG) and Perineurial glia (PG) provide support and nourishment. My PhD. project attempts to understand the intercellular communication between SPG and WG layer. SPG layer forms the blood-brain barrier, while the WG wraps individual axons. Understanding the communication between these glial layers in larvae will highlight the mechanism of gene regulation- ''Developmental neurobiology''
