Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BA1013 spe-6(hc49) vab-7(e1562)/qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339)] III; spe-27(it132) IV. Male/hermaphrodite line. Maintain at 15C to insure maintenance of male/hermaphrodite line.
BA609 spe-6(hc49) vab-7(e1562) III; eDp6 (III;f). Animals with the Duplications are WT. Animals which have lost the Duplication are Sterile and have an abnormal tail.
CB1562 vab-7(e1562) III. Unc. Tail abnormalities-twisted or knobbed. Recessive. M-MATING-NO SUCCESS.
DA438 bli-4(e937) I; rol-6(e187) II; daf-2(e1368) vab-7(e1562) III; unc-31(e928) IV; dpy-11(e224) V; lon-2(e678) X. Linkage mapping strain. Maintain at 15C.
GE42 vab-7(e1562) pha-1(e2123) III. Temperature sensitive. Maintain at 15C. pha-1(e2123) is embryonic lethal at 25C. Hermaphrodites have an abnormal tail: sometimes twisted, tail whip never formed, often bobbed; sometimes uncoordinated with bent tail. Adult male tail deformed also.
HR492 +/hT2 I; vab-7(e1562) mel-44(sb44)/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(h661)] III. Dominant ts maternal-effect embryonic lethal. Embryos arrest prior to morphogenesis or at two-fold. Non-ts recessive mid-larval lethal. Maintain at 15C. Freezes poorly.
OH15912 vab-7(ot959[vab-7::GFP::FLAG]) III. Superficially wild-type. Insertion of GFP and FLAG tags directly before the stop codon of endogenous vab-7 locus. Verified by sequencing. Reference: Reilly MB, et al. Nature. 2020 Aug;584(7822):595-601. PMID: 32814896.
RW12267 vab-7(st12267[vab-7::TY1::EGFP::3xFLAG]) III. CRISPR/Cas9 engineered tagged endogneous locus.
VC1611 +/mT1 II; vab-7(gk709)/mT1 [dpy-10(e128)] III. M142.4. Apparent homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by dpy-10-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, arrested mT1 aneuploids, sterile Dpys (mT1 homozygotes), and gk709 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: CCTTCCCCTCTTCTATTGGC. External right primer: CGACACGCAACACCAATTAC. Internal left primer: AATCCACCGTAGTCACCGAG. Internal right primer: TCAGAGCATGTTTCCCAGTG. Internal WT amplicon: 2427 bp. Deletion size: 1019 bp. Deletion left flank: TAAATTTTTGTAGTTTTTTAGGGATTTTTT. Deletion right flank: TCACTTGTGGAGATGGTCGCCGCATCTCGA.
