Table 3 Summary of G-protein signaling genes in unc-4:: GFP neurons. Genes either known to function in C. elegans motor neuron G-protein signaling pathways or likely to have a role therein (e.g. SER-4) are listed here with KOG descriptions. Transcripts are listed as either enriched with statistical rank (top) or as EGs (bottom).
