  • a Schematics are drawn to scale, solid boxes are exons; POP-1::GFP carries the pop-1 5′ flanking region and the first two introns; the other two use a promoter that expresses GFP in most cells in the animal at the same apparent level.

  • b Rescue of pop-1(q624) mutant. See text and materials and methods for additional details. ND, not determined.
