Comparison of goa-1 loss-of-function and egl-30 gain-of-function mutations. Blue, wild-type (n = 48); green, goa-1 (n1134), a null allele (n = 12); red, egl-30 (tg26), a gain-of-function allele of egl-30 Gq (n = 8). n = number of individuals tested; n is the same for all panels. A. Distribution of point velocity. B. Distribution of centroid velocity. C. Flex at bend 5. D. Frequency at bend 5. E. Length-normalized track amplitude. F. Length-normalized track wavelength. Each curve represents the distribution of 632 to 1485 individual measurements per worm. The population mean values reported in the text reflect only forward moving worms and are based on 550 to 1454 individual measurements per worm.
