Phenotypic effects observed in a CB4856 genetic background depend on α-synuclein expression rather than N2 alleles. Here comparisons are made between N2 (N2 WT and AS) and CB4856 (CB4856 and IL AS) genetic backgrounds with and without the α-synuclein introgression and with CBN93 (IL WT), a line with an introgression of the N2 genome spanning the 3.3–12.8Mbp region on chromosome IV in an CB4856 background. a A box-plot of the average pumping rate in 30 s of worms 48 and 72 h after recovery after L1 arrest, and b Time from recovery of L1 arrest to first egg lay. The black dots represent outliers (outside two times the interquartile range). Letter codes denote lines that differ significantly (p < 0.05)
