CB3273 lon-2(e678) mec-2(e75) X. Long. Mechanosensory Abnormal. [NOTE: originally described as carrying e1084, this strain actually carries the e75 allele. The lesion has been verified by sequence analysis. (11/26/2018)]
CB75 mec-2(e75) X. Lethargic. Neurons touch abnormal. Mechanosensory abnormal-touch insensitive. Recessive. Phenotype severe. M-MATING+++ 10-30%WT.
VC3253 itx-1&W03D8.5(gk3125) F35E2.2(gk3108) I; C38C5.2&mec-2(gk3126) gkDf22 X. W03D8.6, C11E4.3, F13D12.4, W03D8.5, F48E2.4, F49E2.7, F48E2.9, C11E4.1, C11E4.2, C11E4.17, C11E4.15, C11E4.14, C11E4.10, C11E4.9, C38C5.2. The gk3108 allele was identified by PCR and validated by CGH, and can be detected with PCR using the following primers. External left primer: CATTTGGCTGGGTCAACTTT. External right primer: TATTGTAAGGATCTGCCCCG. Internal left primer: TTGCACCAAAATGATGGAAA. Internal right primer: CTCAGACAACAAGATCCGCA. Internal WT amplicon: 2496 bp. Deletion size: 1960 bp. Deletion left flank: GTAGGAGTTGTTGCGTGGAAGGTCACACGC. Deletion right flank: AAATTGCGAACACAATTTTGAAATTCAAAA. Other lesions identified by CGH. 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.
