High-resolution imaging of branchiomotor neuron labeling. (A-E) Confocal images of 6-dpf NRC1CK-5xY2N transgenic line (Tg(2xNRSE-CREST1-cfos:KalTA4, 5xUAS-E1b:YFP-2A-nfsB)lmc003) showing specific labeling of branchiomotor neuron ganglia. When NRSE sites were placed upstream of CREST1-cfos, expression became restricted to cranial motor neuron subpopulations; the expression pattern originally characterized as CREST1-specified [35]. (B, C) Motor ganglia expression included cranial nerve X (vagus, arrow in hindbrain region), VII (facial, down arrowhead), anterior and posterior V (trigeminal, up arrowhead); IV and III (trochlear and oculomotor, respectively, right arrowhead). (D, E) Unidentified descending spinal nerve.
