Table 3 Study of eggs, L1 and L4 length. Eggs containing 3-fold stage embryos were measured. L1 larvae were measured within 1 hr after hatching and L4 larvae scored had an obvious white crescent surrounding the prospective vulva. At least 25 individuals were studied per genotype and experiment.

From: C. elegansfeeding defective mutants have shorter body lengths and increased autophagy
