  • a Total number of male flies tested (excluding the ones that did not survive for more than 7 days in DD).

  • b Percentage of rhythmic flies (R) that have a single significant peak (P < 0.05) based on the χ2 periodogram analysis; their respective period and FFT (fast Fourier transformation) values are shown.

  • c Percentage of weakly rhythmic flies (WR) (see Materials and Methods); their respective period and FFT values are also indicated.

  • d Significant difference (P < 0.001) by χ2 test when compared to results for Pdfr5304 mutants.
