KX17 ife-4(ok320) X. C05D9.5 Homozygous. Deletion of 1778 bp removes 1088 bp upstream of start codon and all of exons 1 and 2. IFE-4 is absent from m7GTP-affinity purified protein; other IFEs are present. Breakpoint determined by BDK is CATCGAGTCGGGACGTGATG/AGTAGTGCAAGACTGATAAA. Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E gene (isoform 4).
VC4314 ife-4(gk5397[loxP + myo-2p::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + rps-27p::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP]) X. Homozygous viable. Deletion of 1659 bp with Calarco/Colaiacovo selection cassette conferring myo-2 GFP and G418 resistance inserted at break. Left flanking sequence: AGCTGAAACGTCAACTCAGGAAGTTGTGAA. Right flanking sequence: ACCAACAGAATCCGAGAAACTCTTCGATCG. Please reference Au et al., G3 9(1): 135-144 2019 in any work resulting from use of this mutation.
