Table 1 Delay in avoidance response

From: The G Protein regulators EGL-10 and EAT-16, the Giα GOA-1 and the Gqα EGL-30 modulate the response of the C. elegansASH polymodal nociceptive sensory neurons to repellents

  1. Dry drop test (see Methods). Responding animals are those that begin backward movement within 7 seconds from encountering the repellent. *Difference from N2, P < 0.01; **difference from egl-10(md176), P < 0.01; ***difference from psra-6::TRPV1, P < 0.01.
