Table 2 Functional redundancy of tbx-8 and tbx-9 is conserved in C. briggsae

From: Synthetic lethal analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans posterior embryonic patterning genes identifies conserved genetic interactions

Genotype C. elegans C. briggsae
  Embryonic lethality Morphological defect Wild type larvae Embryonic lethality Morphological defect Wild type larvae
tbx-8(RNAi) 1% 1% 98% 4% 1% 96%
tbx-9(RNAi) 1% 1% 98% 3% 2% 95%
tbx-8(RNAi);tbx-9(RNAi) 48% 52% 0% 39% 46% 15%
  1. RNAi was used for both genes in both species as no mutations are available for C. briggsae.
