Data supporting the contention of the article: Monoaminergic modulation of photoreception in ascidian: Evidence for a proto-hypothalamo-retinal territory. Two tables of the genes studied in the paper, the first one with the references of the genes encoding components of the monoamine neurotransmission pathway, the second one with the reference of the genes encoding monoamine receptors and found in the Ciona genome. One figure demonstrating the presence of serotonin in the ascidian larvae (Figure 1). One figure showing the uptake of serotonin in the dopamine cells of the ascidian sensory vesicle (Figure 2). One figure showing that dopamine and serotonin can modulate the light-induced swimming behaviour of the larva of Ciona intestinalis (Figure 3).
