  • Percentage of rhythmicity and period lengths of ITP-KD flies and PDF-KD flies were statistically compared with the data for the two respective genetic controls.

  • *Significant differences in period length (for statistical values, see main text).

  • **Highly significant differences in the percentage of rhythmic flies.
