  1. a For all genotypes tested, at least three independent lines were assayed. These results are the combined data from individual lines. See Additional file 5 for results of individual lines.
  2. b Rescue is defined as being different from unc-18(sy671) in Table 1.
  3. (p < 0.001) using ANOVA with a Tukey-Kramer multiple comparisons test (InStat3 software).
  4. c ND, not done. These lines were not assayed because the introduction of the transgene caused severe mating behavioral defects in steps prior to sperm transfer assay.
