Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BS509 ozDf2/dpy-21(e428) par-4(it33) V. Heterozygotes are wild-type and segregate wild-type (heterozygotes), Dpys (dpy-21 par-4 homozygotes that lay dead eggs), and dead eggs (ozDf2 homozygotes). Maintain by picking wild-type.
KK184 par-4(it47) V. Strict maternal effect lethal. Temperature sensitive-grow at 15C. Par at 20C and 25C.
KK300 par-4(it57) V. Temperature-sensitive maternal effect lethal (strict). Maintain at 15-16C (95% of embyros hatch). Shift to 25C for Par phenotype (no hatching embryos).
UTR43 par-4(nar12[par-4Ap::mNG + loxP sqt-1(gf) Hygromycin(+) loxP 3X FLAG]) V. Homozygous viable, Rol. nar12 (non-excised strain) is null for par-4A & C, but not for par-4B, and is viable. Low rate of spontaneous excision even when maintained at 15C. Pick Rollers to maintain. Reference: Roy et al. microPublication Biology.
UTR45 par-4(nar13[mNG::3X FLAG::par-4a + loxP]) V. Superficially wild-type. nar13 was derived by excision of UTR43(nar12) cassette by heat shock. Tagged endogenous PAR-4A & C: weak, ubiquitous fluorescence. Reference: Roy et al. microPublication Biology.
