AGK233 unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx58. armEx58 [WRM0611aH08-Del8mer + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses a derivative WRM0611aH08 fosmid. The WRM0611aH08 fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. This derivative fosmid construct lacks the upstream 8-mer motif (CTGTTTCA) next to 21U-3372. The expression of this individual 21U-RNA is lost in transgenic animals. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment.

AGK234 unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx53. armEx53 [WRM0611aH08 + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses the WRM0611aH08 fosmid construct.

JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. Expression of this fosmid construct in JU258 worms restores the expression of the missing 21U-RNAs in the germline, as measured by RT-qPCR. Reference: Cecere G, et al.

AGK26 unc-119(ed3) III; armEx5. armEx5 [zfp-1(fosmid)::GFP + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain.

AV221 unc-119(ed3) meT8 (III); meIs4 meT8 (IV); meIs1. meIs1 [pie-1p::GFP::lacI + unc-119(+)]. meIs4 [lac-O + rol-6(su1006) + lacO] IV. Pick Rol worms to maintain. This strain throws both Rol and non-Rol worms, seemingly due to random silencing of rol-6(su1006) in the lacO array, meIs4. The strain expresses GFP::LacI in the gonad and embryos that is observed as foci (of lacO target) and nuclear haze. The expression level of GFP::LacI occasionally becomes low possibly due to random silencing of meIs1. If this happens, heat shock the strain at 25°C for 3 days, and pick a clone that exhibits bright GFP signals. Even at the highest expression level, GFP signal is too weak to detect with a fluorescent dissection microscope, and it is necessary to use a regular compound fluorescent microscope with an oil immersion 60X or 100X objective. The NA of the objective should be higher than 1.4. Reference: Bilgir C, et al. G3 (Bethesda). 2013 Mar 11. pii: g3.112.005165v1.
