Disappearance of lesions from the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes of young adult nematodes. N2 data were not analyzed statistically, because they are unlikely to represent repair only (see text). For the glp-1 data, time had a significant effect on lesion frequency (P < 0.0001, main effect of time across genomes), but this effect was different for the two genomes (P = 0.0091, time × genome interaction). Time had a significant effect on lesion frequency when the nuclear lesion data were analyzed alone (P = 0.0004), but not when the mitochondrial data were analyzed alone (P = 0.068). n = 3 per column; error bars represent standard errors of the mean.
