Postembryonic expression of hepact in larval neurons increases synaptic growth. Confocal projections of synaptic arbors show that synapse size is increased after hepact induction in postembryonic neurons (B) compared to control (A). C) A histogram representation of bouton number shows that hepact overexpression leads to a 31% increase in synapse size (P < 0.001), while exposing wild-type larvae to the inducible ligand does not cause a significant change in synapse size.
