Abstract The central nervous system (CNS) is composed of a large heterogeneous population of cells. This complexity makes it difficult to dissect neuronal functions at a cellular level. One way to resolve this problem is to use cell lines consisting of homogenous cells originated from the nervous system. To this end, we have succeeded in establishing cell lines from the CNS of Drosophila 3rd instar larva: 8 continuous cell lines, designated as ML-DmBG1~8, and clonal lines from 3 of them (Table 1; Ui et al., 1994a). Here, we introduce these cell lines and some of the practical applications.
