Glucose concentration in C. elegans. C. elegans were cultured on agar having the glucose concentrations of 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 mmol/l. After 5 days, 100 C. elegans were harvested and the glucose concentrations in the C. elegans whole-body extracts were determined. Results are the means ± SE of three independent experiments; n.s. (not significant) describes a t test value (P > 0.05, *P < 0.05, and ***P < 0.001) comparing two groups as indicated.
