(A) Representative mate-searching data for strains with genetic ablation of the ASJ neurons (shown in shades of orange). WT hermaphrodites (solid black), WT males (dashed black), and daf-7 mutant (blue) animals are included in each assay as controls. (B) Representative data for daf-7;daf-3 double mutant (green) in the mate-searching assay. (C) Representative data for daf-7 rescue strains (shown in shades of red). (D) Representative mate-searching curves for daf-1 mutants (purple). (E) Probability of leaving values for WT, daf-7, and daf-1 mutant animals. Values shown are the average + SEM of two independent experiments. n = 40 for WT and daf-7 mutants, n = 32 for daf-1(e1287) and n = 36 for daf-1(m402). *p<0.05 as determined by ordinary one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s multiple comparisons test.
