Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BR2958 ceh-16(lg16) III; jcIs1 IV; ngEx1. jcIs1 [ajm-1::GFP + unc-29(+) + rol-6(su1006)] IV. ngEx1[ceh-16::GFP]. ngEx1 rescues ceh-16(lg16) lethality. ajm-1 was formerly known as jam-1 (Junction Associated Protein) and "the gene encoding the antigen recognized by the monoclonal antibody MH27." jcIs1 consists of pJS191, C45D3 and pRF4. Reference: Cassata et al. Development. 2005 Feb;132(4):739-49.
HZ620 ceh-16(bp323) III; wIs51 V. wIs51 [SCMp::GFP + unc-119(+)] V. GFP expression in seam cells. Temperature-sensitive: maintain at 20C or lower. bp323 mutants show reduced number of seam cells when raised at restrictive temperature (25C). Reference: Huang XX, et al. Dev Biol. 2009 Sep 15;333(2):337-47.
VC565 ceh-16(ok841) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C13G5.1. Homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP ok841 homozygotes (early larval arrest). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Note: qIs48 has been observed to recombine off hT2, typically leaving behind a functional homozygous viable hT2 with Bli-4 phenotype. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
