Table 1 The effect of mating for folt-1 knockout hermaphrodites and males.

From: Knockout of the folate transporter folt-1 causes germline and somatic defects in C. elegans

  1. The him-14(it144)II mutation was used to obtain males with the folt-1(ok1460) knockout mutation. Unmated hermaphrodites that are him-14 mutants produce male progeny [59].
