Table 1 Expression of promoter-GFP reporters for transcripts enriched in unc-4::GFP motor neuron data set. Reporters were examined for expression in DA, SAB and I5 neurons. 15/18 reporters showed GFP expression (bold type) in these cells. GFP reporters are listed according to statistical rank. All GFP-positive reporters were visible in embryos (data not shown) but were scored in larval animals to ease neuron identification.
