  • Number following the “±” is the standard error of the mean. n, number of animals scored.

  • a Data are from one RNAi experiment. Additional RNAi experiments were done using a strain with unc-32 as a marker rather than unc-36. The percentage of embryonic lethality was 3.2% in unc-32 glp-1(bn18) animals (14 broods, 206 ± 5 animals/brood) and 12.6% in ego-2(RNAi); unc-32 glp-1(bn18) (14 broods, 186 ± 6 animals/brood).
