Method To better assess Unc-104 influences on general transport behaviors, flux and net transport rates of GFP-tagged DCVs, mitochondria, and STVs were quantified in wild-type and mutant motor axons. Organelle-targeted GFPs were imaged in motor axons of third instar segmental nerves by time-lapse fluorescence microscopy
