  • Table shows mean and standard error of percentage embryonic or L1 arrest in broods of a set of individual hermaphrodites raised entirely at 15°, or shifted to 20° or 25.5° at the L4 stage. Unless otherwise noted by the number in parentheses, 10 hermaphrodites were tested for each allele. See Table 2 for total progeny scored. ND, not determined.

  • a Ranked in order of increasing severity of the L2d and dauer arrest phenotype, within each class.

  • b of 10 animals tested, only 2 bore progeny.

  • c Of 12 animals tested, only 5 bore progeny.
