Data from: Compensatory growth in C. elegans is regulated by a thermosensitive TRP channel and increases reproductive fitness

Animals are often not growing at the maximum rate, but can compensate for a bad start of life by further increasing growth rate. While this compensatory growth is widespread, its direct fitness consequences are seldom investigated and its genetic basis is unknown. We investigated the genetic regulation, as well as fitness and lifespan consequences of compensatory growth in response to temperature, using C. elegans knockout of the thermo-sensitive TRP ion channel TRPA-1, involved in temperature...
