  • * The numbers in parentheses show the numbers of animals scored

  • The strains carry the extrachromosomal array, Ex[daf-9(+), gcy-10::GFP]

  • Animals carrying the extrachromosomal array

  • § Animals that had lost the extrachomosomal array

  • These strains were grown on NGM minus cholesterol and dauer-like larvae were scored

  • ** These strains were grown on normal NGM and dauer larvae were scored
