Table 1 The number of second motoneurons is reduced following Met knock down

From: The Met receptor tyrosine kinase prevents zebrafish primary motoneurons from expressing an incorrect neurotransmitter

  Control met MO SB203580
Number of embryos 18 20 16
Percent of segments with ventral nerve 98 61 39
GFP+ somata within 3 cell diameters of floor plate 20 ± 0.47 9 ± 0.61 6 ± 0.40
GFP+ somata 3 cell diameters dorsal of floor plate 5 ± 0.39 10 ± 0.52 8 ± 0.68
  1. GFP-positive SMN axons (three segments/embryo) and somata (two segments/embryo) were analyzed in 48 hpf Tg(gata2:GFP) embryos. Soma counts of treatment groups are all significantly different from controls (p < 0.00015).
