  • a Developmental stage at which animals arrest or the stage they had reached when counted. e/L1 indicates animals arrest as embryos or L1 larvae. L2/L3 indicates animals arrest as L2 or L3 larvae (also includes slow-growing animals). L4/Ad indicates animals had reached L4 or adulthood.

  • b All genotypes include him-5(e1490). Alleles tested: lin-49(sy238), lin-59(sa489), mab-9(sa473).
