Interesting new research article:
The approach is summarized here:
"The requirement of DVMAT [Drosophila Vesicular MonoAmine Transporter] for normal exocytotic transmitter release in all central aminergic neurons-- rather than a single subset-- presents a unique opportunity for ablating normal synaptic transmission in all aminergic systems simultaneously then adding back each one in isolation or in combination. Thus, starting with a loss of function dVMAT mutant background, we have systematically added back, or genetically rescued, DVMAT function and vesicular release in specific subsets of aminergic neurons."
