Table 4: Analysis of mutant flies' resistance to paraquat-induced oxidative stress. Paraquat resistance of 29 mutant lines was assayed in three independent experiments as described in Fig. 4. The survival data were submitted to a log-rank statistical analysis by comparison with w/+ reference flies. The results are presented in this table. Column 1 contains the tested genotype (same conventions as in Fig. 4a : Bloomington line numbers). The corresponding genotypes are described in column 6. The symbol for the gene affected is reported in column 2. Information from FlyBase about the allele used in this study is given in column 7 with a one character code: A: amorph; H: hypomorph; N: non complementation of deficiency; L: letal; R: recessive mutation; 5: insertion in the 5' regulatory region, 5'UTR or intron; C: insertion in the coding region. Column 8 indicates whether the tested line was outcrossed or not before the test. Column 4 is the result of a log-rank analysis of the second survival experiments shown in figure 4. A confidence index which refers to the mean of log10 (p-log-rank) for the three experiments is given in column 5. We considered that a strain had a significant effect on survival under oxidative stress conditions when this confidence index was lower than -3 and at least two experiments presented p-log-rank < 0.001. Under these stringent conditions 13 genotypes are shown to confer resistance (R) or sensitivity (S) to paraquat as indicated in column 3.
