  • a Number of gonad arms analyzed.

  • b Overproliferation severity was qualitatively determined based on number of S-phase nuclei. Overproliferation of gld-1 mutant germline is arbitrarily taken as ++, and gonads from age-matched animals of different genotypes are classified as less severe (+) or more severe (+++) than gld-1 mutant germlines.

  • c All germ cells entered meiosis but are arrested with a pachytene-like morphology.

  • d Hermaphrodites grown at 25°.

  • e Hermaphrodites grown at 25°.
