Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BC3303 egl-38(s1775) unc-22(s7) unc-31(e169) IV/nT1 (IV;V). s1775 homozygotes die as embryos or L1 larvae. Heterozygous animals are WT and segregate WT, Twitcher lethals and dead eggs. nT1 appears to have a lethal mutation.
BC4923 egl-38(sy294) IV; him-5(e1490) V.
MT1208 egl-38(n578) mec-3(n3197) IV. Egl. Strain contains both a mec mutation and an egl mutation. Touch insensitive. Abnormal vulva. Forms bags of worms.
VC2791 egl-38(ok3510) IV/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). C04G2.7. Homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested nT1[qIs51] aneuploids, and non-GFP ok3510 homozygotes (early larval arrest). Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: CCTCCCTACCCTACCCTCTG. External right primer: CGACTCCACAGTGCTTTCAG. Internal left primer: GCCCGGTTTTACCCTGTATT. Internal right primer: TTCCGCCTCAAAAGTTTCTC. Internal WT amplicon: 1203 bp. Deletion size: 786 bp. Deletion left flank: AAAATTTTACAAATTAAGCGAATAATACTT. Deletion right flank: GCGATTACAAAATTAATTTGTATTCCTTAT. Attribution: This strain was provided by the C. elegans Reverse Genetics Core Facility at the University of British Columbia, which is part of the international C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use.
