Table 1 Number of GFP-labeled motoneurons (mean ± standard deviation) in abdominal neuromeres A1 and A2 to A7 from 12 to 20 h-APF.

  1. The maximum possible total number of motoneurons was two aCCs and two RP2s in A1, and 12 aCCs and 12 RP2s in A2 through A7. Number of animals (n) is given in parentheses. aSignificant difference between number of aCC and RP2 motoneurons in A2 through A7, at the times shown (P < 0.0001; Student's paired t-test, two-tailed); the number of RP2s was first significantly reduced at 16 h-APF. The number of aCC and RP2 motoneurons in A1 was stable over this time period.
