  • a Animals were fed bacteria producing dsRNA generated from plasmids encoding the gene listed.

  • 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.
