Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
CB620 lin-18(e620) X. Some hermaphrodites (<50%) have single small protrusion posterior to vulva, occassional vulval rupture.
HS2067 mig-1(e1787) lin-17(n671) mom-5(ne12) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III); cfz-2(ok1201) wIs51 V; lin-18(e620) X. wIs51 [SCMp::GFP + unc-119(+)] V. GFP expression in seam cells. Heterozygotes are GFP+(pharynx) wild-type and segregate GFP+(pharynx) wild-type, GFP-(pharynx) Sys Psa Unc and dead eggs. PIck GFP+(pharynx) wild-type to maintain. Presence of cfz-2 was confirmed by PCR; mig-1 by complementation test. Reference: Yamamoto Y, et al. PLoS Genet. 2011 Oct;7(10):e1002308.
HS2372 mig-1(e1787) I; cfz-2(ok1201) wIs51 V; lin-18(e620) X. wIs51 [SCMp::GFP + unc-119(+)] V. GFP expression in seam cells. Bivulva. Presence of cfz-2 was confirmed by PCR. mig-1 and lin-18 were confirmed by sequencing. Reference: Yamamoto Y, et al. PLoS Genet. 2011 Oct;7(10):e1002308.
MT1484 lin-18(e620) dpy-7(e1324) X. e1324 is a ts allele - animals are Dpy at 25C. Some hermaphrodites (<50%) have single small protrusion posterior to vulva, occassional vulval rupture.
MT1790 unc-78(e1217) lin-18(e620) lon-2(e678) X. Some hermaphrodites (<50%) have single small protrusion posterior to vulva, occassional vulval rupture; temperature sensitive. Unc. Lon.
MT2129 lin-18(n1051) X. Biv. Temperature-sensitive amber allele. Reference: Genetics (1985) 110:17-72.
MT5797 lin-11(n389) I; nIs2 IV; lin-18(e620) X. nIs2 [lin-11::lacZ + lin-11(+)] IV. Integrated on IV near dpy-20.
PS3976 lin-17(en671) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III); lin-18(e620) X. Homozygous sterile mutation 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 sterile en671 homozygotes. Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
