slo-1; slo-2 double loss-of-function mutants are fast to change their behavior. ad Wild-type (a), slo-1(eg142) (b), slo-2(nf101) (c), and slo-1(eg142); slo-2(nf101) (d) animals were cultivated at 17 °C for 5 days and then at 23 °C for the time indicated. The animals were then subjected to thermotaxis assay. The fractions of animals are plotted on histograms. The error bars represent the SEM. n = 4, 4, 6, 10, 4, 5 for wild-type animals and n = 6, 4, 6, 10, 4, 8 for others. e The means of the thermotaxis indices are plotted against time after the cultivation temperature was changed to 23 °C. The error bars represent the SEM. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 (Dunnett test against wild-type animals). Individual data points are shown in Supplementary Fig. 3a. See also Supplementary Figs 1, 2, and 3
