Strain Genotype Description
BC13697 dpy-5(e907) I; sEx13697. sEx13697 [rCesY48G8AL.6::GFP + pCeh361]. Maintain by picking WT. WT animals are GFP+. Strain construction supported by Genome British Columbia and Genome Canada.

CB4043 smg-2(e2008) I; him-5(e1490) V. e2008 recessively suppresses the phenotypes of mutations in unc-54(r293), lin-29(n546), tra-2 and dpy-5. Abnormal male tail. smg-2 homozygotes have slightly abnormal movement.
CB4554 smg-2(e2008) smg-1(e1228) I; him-5(e1490) V. Smg (protruding vulva) hermaphrodites segregating Smg hermaphrodites and Smg (Male abnormal) males. Reference: Hodgkin et al. (1989) PMID: 2583479.
CB4559 smg-2(e2008) I; tra-1(e1732) III. Grows poorly, best at 20C. Self-fertile intersexual XX hermaphrodite due to partial suppression of weak tra-1 allele by smg-2(NMD). References: Zarkower et al. (1994) PMID: 7520378. Hodgkin (1987) PMID:3428597.
CB4890 smg-2(e2008) I; tra-1(e1488) III. Intersexual self-fertile XX hermaphrodites with Smg (protruding vulva) phenotype. Grows poorly, does best at 20C. Class B1 allele of tra-1 combined with smg-2(NMD), useful for selection of modifiers. Reference: Zarkower et al. (1994) PMID: 7520378
CB5200 smg-2(e2008) I; tra-1(e2272) III. Self-fertile hermaprodite or female. Protruding vulva. tra-1(e2272) XX homozygotes are sterile with abnormal gonads; e2272 mutation is partly suppressed by NMD (smg-2(e2008)), hence double mutants are fertile. Reference: Zarkower et al. (1994) PMID: 7520378.
TR1421 smg-2(r908) unc-54(r293) I. P-Vul.
