Table 1 Brood size of N2 (wild type) and mutant animals

From: Loss of hif-1 promotes resistance to the exogenous mitochondrial stressor ethidium bromide in Caenorhabditis elegans

Strain Brood size (no. of eggs ± S.D.)
N2 229.0 ± 23.8
hif-1(ia4) 149.3 ± 9.8*
djr-1.1(tm918) 263.0 ± 24.1
  1. Single worms were grown in fresh OP50 plates at 22 °C, and the adult worm was transferred to a fresh plate containing OP50 everyday until the worm stopped laying eggs. Figures are mean ± standard deviation (S.D.). Results are from three independent experiments (n ≥ 40). One-way Anova (*denotes p < 0.05) was done to test for statistical significance in brood size between mutant strains and wild-type using GraphPad Prism 5.0 software
