Fig. 2

Most Pax2-expressing zebrafish spinal interneurons are inhibitory. Lateral views of Pax2 immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridisation for markers of glycinergic (A), GABAergic (B) glutamatergic (C) and GABAergic or glycinergic (labelled “inhibitory”; probes were mixed) (D) cell fates in 24 h WT trunks. See Materials and methods for details of probes used. Stars indicate double labelled cells. Rostal is left, dorsal is top. Scale bar = 50 μm. (E) Percentage of Pax2-expressing cells with particular neurotransmitter phenotypes. (F and G) Percentage of cells with specific neurotransmitter phenotypes that express Pax2 in whole spinal cord (F) or just the Pax2-expression domain (rows 4–7; G). In all cases, percentages are averages from 5 different embryos at 24 h. Error bars denote standard deviation. Note that most glycinergic cells are found in the Pax2/8 expression domain but many GABAergic cells are found more ventrally in the spinal cord (A and B; also cf. F and G). (H–J) Magnified views of dashed white boxes in A (H), B (I) and C (J) respectively showing red and green channels and merged images for a single confocal focal plane. Stars in merged images indicate double labelled cells. For single channel images of the whole lateral view see Supp. Data Fig. 2.
