Phenotypehomozygous viable. Dr. R.H. Horvitz: not completely penetrant multivulva and sterile at 25 degree, synthetic multivulva with mutations in class A, B and C genes. Dr. M. Han: WT at 20 degree, partial Muv at 25 degree. tm1489; lin-8 (null) is partial Muv at 20C, complete and obvious Muv at 25C. tm1489; lin-15A (RNAi) is Muv at 20C. Dr. W. Vermeulen: hpl-1 (tm1624) hpl-2 (tm1489) double mutant shows severe UV sensitivity.
