  • a Animals were fed bacteria that produced dsRNA to sdc-2.

  • b Hermaphrodite viability was calculated by the formula: (no. of adult hermaphrodites)/(total no. of embryos) × 100.

  • c n is the total number of embryos from at least six independent sets of progeny counts.

  • d Data are from Gladden and Meyer (2007, accompanying article).

  • e Mutants were grown on bacteria carrying the L4440 empty vector. Data were acquired concurrently with the data in footnote d.

  • f This strain also has the unc-76(e911) and unc-10(e102) mutations.
