The levamisole receptor subunits unc-29 and unc-38 are required for ventral and dorsal tail curling in response to levamisole. The highest amount of tail curling at the 15- to 20-minute time points for each trial was averaged. (a) A comparison of ventral tail curling of wild-type males and unc-29 (e1072) mutant males in 1 mM levamisole (N = 20 for all genotypes and conditions). (b) A comparison of dorsal tail curling of wild-type versus unc-29(e1072) mutant males in 0.1 mM levamisole (wild-type 0.1 mM levamisole, N = 16 for all other conditions, N = 15). (c) A comparison of ventral tail curling in wild-type versus unc-38(sy576) mutant males in 1 mM levamisole (wild-type, 1 mM levamisole, wild-type ddH20, and unc-38 ddH20, N = 25; unc-38, 1 mM levamisole, N = 24). (d) A comparison of dorsal tail curling in wild-type versus unc-38(sy576) mutant males in .1 mM levamisole (wild-type 0.1 mM levamisole, N = 19 for all other genotypes and conditions, N = 20). W = water; L = levamisole.
