Table 1 Effects of starvation treatment on vulval induction level of different mutants of the sensory system. Statistical tests (One-Way-ANOVAs) were performed for each mutant separately testing for the effect of treatment (food vs. starvation) on the number of vulval cells induced (* P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001, ns: non-significant). To facilitate comparison, measurements for lin-3(e1417) and lin-3(n378) are also included (i.e., same data as in Figures 2C and 2F)
