In the second column, 'ortholog' refers to the canonical ortholog in yeast, flies, mice, or humans. The pathway to which the ortholog belongs is in brackets. Third column: if known, the null or strong loss-of-function phenotype is shown. Fourth column: weak loss-of-function (hypomorphic) phenotypes are shown for representative alleles. Phenotypic acronyms: Emb, embryonic lethal; Daf-c, dauer formation constitutive; Slo, slow growth; Egl, egg-laying defective; Vul, vulvaless; Glp, germ-line proliferation defects; Muv, multivulva; Mig, cell and/or axon migration defects; Pvl, protruding vulva; Sma, small body; Mab, male tail abnormal; Ste, sterile; ts, temperature sensitive. The alleles used in this study are followed by two asterisks if used as a query against both the signaling targets and the LGIII targets, or just a single asterisk if used only against the signaling targets.
