  • Tests and lifetime mating assays were carried out as in Hodgkin and Doniach (1997). The No. assayed column gives the number of fertile males for which complete lifetime fertilities were measured. For comparison, the table also includes data previously published in Hodgkin (1987a; tra-1 alleles, lines 2 and 3) and Hodgkin and Doniach (1997; wild type, line 1). NA, not applicable.
