Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BC14786 dpy-5(e907) I; sEx14786. sEx14786 [rCes R148.6::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).
JT11323 heh-1(ok603) III. Cholesterol concentration-dependent Daf-c. If cholesterol is omitted from NGM, animals form dauers (no dauers are formed on regular NGM). Temperature sensitive Daf-c; heh-1 animals more readily form dauers at 27C than WT animals. Partial dauer phenotype; dauers exhibit ale but do not fully constrict pharynges nor arrest germline proliferation. On low cholesterol, vulva protrudes and sometimes ruptures; animals exhibit egg-laying defects. Hypersensititve to progesterone in culture media.
VC391 heh-1(ok603)/sC1 [dpy-1(s2170)] III. R148.6. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, Dpy sC1 homozygotes, and ok603 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
