Effect of gene knockdown on C. elegans lifespan upon challenge with other bacteria. Kaplan-Meier survival curves showing effect of nhr-49 and dlg-1 knockdown upon challenge with (a-b) SGG53 and (c-d) mc(2)155. Survival curves for gene knockdowns on OP50, performed on a separate occasion, are also shown. Data represent three biological replicates with 20–30 nematodes each; p-values indicate comparisons between gene knockdown and empty vector for the same bacteria
