lin-33(n1043)- and lin-24(n432)-induced Pn.p cell death is partially dependent on genes that mediate the removal of apoptotic corpses

  • The average number of Pn.p nuclei per animal was determined by counting the number of Pn.p nuclei present ∼24 hr after hatching using Nomarski optics. Twenty animals were examined for each strain.
