Strain Genotype Description
AP36 mep-1(ok421)/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). qIs51 [myo-2p::GFP + pes-10p::GFP + F22B7.9p::GFP]. Heterozygotes are wild-type GFP+ and segregate non-GFP ok421 homozygotes, wild-type GFP+ heterozygotes, and arrested nT1[qIs51] aneuploids. Pick wild-type GFP+ and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Received new stock 12/02.
BC11410 dpy-5(e907) I; sEx11410. sEx11410 [rCes M04B2.1::GFP + pCeh361]. Maintain by picking WT. WT animals are GFP+. Strain construction supported by Genome British Columbia and Genome Canada. Please acknowledge McKay et al, Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology 68: 159-169 2004 (WBPaper00006525).
JK2906 mep-1(q660) IV/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). M04B2.1 Throws Steriles and GFP(+) nT1 heterozygotes and dead eggs. The nT1 chromosome is apparently homozygous lethal since Vul worms are not seen. For some reason, crosses with this nT1[qIs51] chromosome generate an excess of male progeny. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it from the CGC. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects.
MT11713 mep-1(n3702) IV/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-?] (IV;V). Heterozygotes are Unc and segregate Unc, PvlSte, and dead eggs.
