  1. a For all genotypes carrying an extrachromosomal array (Ex), at least three independent lines were assayed except for unc-18(sy671); Ex[Promoterless::unc-18::yfp], for which only two lines each were tested. These results are the combined data from individual lines. See Additional file 4 for results of individual lines.
  2. b Wild type is strain PS3696, plg-1(e2001); him-5(e1490).
  3. c Rescue is defined as being different from unc-18(sy671).
  4. (p < 0.001) using ANOVA with a Tukey-Kramer multiple comparisons test (InStat3 software).
