Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
AGD397 aak-1(tm1944) III; aak-2(ok524) X; uthEx202. uthEx202 [crtc-1p::crtc-1 cDNA::tdTomato::unc-54 3'UTR + rol-6(su1006)]. Pick Rollers to maintain. Reference: Mair W, et al. Nature. 2011 Feb 17;470(7334):404-8.
BC10615 dpy-5(e907) I; sEx10615. sEx10615 contains [rCesT01C8.1a::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).
MAH28 aak-2(ok524) X; adIs2122. adIs2122 [lgg-1::GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Rollers. Reference: Egan DF, et al. Science. 2011 Jan 28;331(6016):456-61.
MIR13 sir-2.1(ok434) IV; aak-2(ok524) X. Slow growing. Maintain under normal conditions. Derived from parental strains RB754 [aak-2(ok524)] and VC199 [sir-2.1(ok434)]. Reference: Schmeisser S, et al. Molecular Metabolism February 15, 2013. DOI: 10.1016/j.molmet.2013.02.002.
NB245 aak-1(tm1944) III; aak-2(gt33) X. Hypersensitive to oxidative stress; more sensitive to the stress than either of the cognate single mutants. Parental aak-1(tm1944) strain outcrossed 8 times; parental aak-2(gt33) strain outcrossed 3 times. Reference: Lee H, et al. J Biol Chem. 2008 May 30;283(22):14988-93.
PE863 feIs4 V; aak-2(ok524) X. feIs4 [sur-5p::luciferase::GFP + rol-6(su1006)] V. Rollers. Strain is bioluminescent when provided with exogenous D-luciferin (potassium salt) due to sur-5 promoter driving expression of firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase (lacking the peroxisome tagging signal) fused in-frame to GFP(S65C). Pick animals with high levels of fluorescence to retain expression of luciferase transgene. This strain is for academic use only. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects. References: Lagido C, et al. BMC Physiol. 2008 Apr 2;8:7. McLaggan D, et al. PLoS One. 2012;7(10):e46503.
