Figure 5

Pan-neural datasets detect neuron-specific transcripts. A representation of transcripts enriched in the larval pan-neural dataset and a subset of the neurons in which these genes are expressed. (a) Lateral view of an adult worm depicting selected neurons. Ventral is down, anterior is to the left. (b) Close-up of the adult head, showing the serotonergic neuron NSM and two sensory neurons, AFD and ASI. For simplicity, only one of the two pairs of neurons is diagrammed. The pharynx is colored green and the anterior end of the intestine is gray. (c) Table displaying representative genes enriched in the larval pan-neural dataset and expressed in each indicated neuron. Asterisks denote exclusive expression in the listed cell type. (Artwork courtesy of Zeynep Altun, Chris Crocker and David Hall at WormAtlas [120].)
