Extended Data Table 2 Lifespan assays of L2ox, L2mean and L2red subpopulations

From: Developmental ROS individualizes organismal stress resistance and lifespan

  1. Worms were sorted onto NGM plates and assessed for lifespan. P values for Kaplan–Meier survival analysis were calculated on the basis of the log-rank (Mantel–Cox) method unless noted otherwise. Samples were compared with L2ox subpopulations. Maximum lifespan was defined as the lifespan of the last 10% of the population. E.V., empty vector (control RNAi conditions for experiments in Extended Data Table 4).
  2. *Percentage change based on mean lifespan.
  3. †Percentage change based on maximum lifespan.
  4. P value for survival analysis calculated based on the Gehan–Breslow–Wilcoxon method.
  5. §Grx1–roGFP2 ratio of L2ox and L2red subpopulations, based on BioSorter analysis during sorting. Data represent mean ± s.e.m. n, number of worms. Two-sided unpaired t-test.
  6. ǁGrx1–roGFP2 ratio of L2ox and L2red subpopulations based on microscopy analysis, following sorting. Data are mean ± s.e.m. n, number of worms. Two-sided unpaired t-test.
  7. ¶Lifespan assay conducted with experimenter blind to the type of worms assayed.
