Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BA1044 spe-27(it132) spe-29(it127) IV; him-5(e1490) V. Non-conditional hermaphrodite sterile. Males fertile. Self-progeny produced after mating.
BA1051 spe-12(hc76) I; spe-29(it127) IV; him-5(e1490) V. Self-sterile hermaphrodites; fertile males. Mated hermaphrodites produce self and outcross progeny. Self progeny are 33% males.
BA959 spe-29(it127) dpy-20(e1282) IV. Homozygous male/hermaphrodite line. Males are fertile. Hermaphrodites are sterile, but slightly leaky producing a few progeny (at 25C - ts not tested). In pronase, spermatids from males activate to form many long spikes, terminating at this stage. A very few (1-3 per worm) activate to form normal-looking, motile spermatozoons.
BA962 spe-29(it127) IV. Hermaphrodites are sterile; Males are fertile. Hermaphrodites lay oocytes (produce a few fertile eggs and many oocytes). Produce viable progeny when mated to males. Hermaphrodites produce 10X more self progeny at 20C (2.5/herm) than at either 16C or 25C.
BA968 spe-29(it127) unc-24(e138) IV. Unc. Leaky sterile at 20C; tighter at 16C and 25C. Easier to propagate as if male-female strain.
BA975 spe-6(hc163) III; spe-29(it127) dpy-20(e1282) IV. spe-6(hc163) suppresses the self-sterility of spe-29 in this strain. Self-sterile at 25C.
