 In the course of this work, we have benefited par­ticularly from discussions with Martin Chalfie, Jonathan Hodgkin, Bob Horvitz, Judith Kimble, and John White. We are also grateful to Marilyn Anness for help with electron microscopical reconstruction, and to Judith Daniels and Annette Lenton for help with the figures. D.G.A. was a research fellow of the Muscular Dystrophy Association of America, Inc.
