Strain Genotype Description
AMH26 unc-104(e1265) II; sosIs5. sosIs5 [rab-3p::Cerulean-Venus::lgg-1 + unc-119(+)]. Unc. Slow moving.
AMH91 unc-104(e1265) II; olaEx3013. olaEx3013 [ttx-3p::mCherry::eGFP::lgg-1 + unc-122p::mCherry]. Pick animals with mCherry+ coelomocytes to maintain array. Unc. Slow moving. Tandem tags on LGG-1 label immature autophagosomes with both GFP and mCherry, but because GFP is preferentially quenched in an acidic environment, mature structures lose their GFP signal and display solely mCherry signal.

DLW109 wrdSi23 I; unc-104(knu973[unc-104::AID]) II. wrdSi23 [eft-3p::TIR1:F2A:mTagBFP:tbb2 3' UTR:: loxP] I. wrdSi23 is inserted at ttTi4348 (I: -5.32 cM). Pan-somatic expression of TIR1 co-factor for AID, and expression of AID-tagged blue protein in somatic nuclei. Auxin-inducible degradation (AID) tag inserted at C-terminus of endogenous unc-104 locus by CRISPR/Cas9. Can be used for auxin-induced immobilization of worms for live imaging.

DLW112 reSi7 I; unc-104(knu973[unc-104::AID]) II. reSi7 [rgef-1p::TIR1::F2A::mTagBFP2::AID*::NLS::tbb-2 3'UTR] (I:-5.32). Neuronal-specific expression of TIR1 co-factor for AID, and tissue-specific AID-tagged blue protein in neuronal nuclei. Auxin-inducible degradation (AID) tag inserted at C-terminus of endogenous unc-104 locus by CRISPR/Cas9. Can be used for auxin-induced immobilization of worms for live imaging. Strain generated by crossing endogenously tagged unc-104::AID into DV3805. reSi7 is at -5.32 cM.

JC153 unc-104(ut60)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpyUncs and unc-104(ut60) animals which are L1 lethal coilers.
JW105 dpy-10(e128) sup-39(je5) unc-4(e120)/unc-104(e1265) II. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Dpy Unc-4, and Unc-104s.
KG4386 unc-104(ce782) II. Temperature sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Animals grown at 14C take 23% longer than wild-type to reach adulthood, exhibit 0% larval arrest, locomotion rates that are ~40% of wild type, and synaptic vesicle densities at synapses that are ~60% of wild type. Animals grown at 20C take 80% longer than wild type to reach adulthood, exhibit locomotion rates that are ~3% of wild type, and synaptic vesicle densities at synapses that are ~2% of wild type. Animals grown at 25C exhibit >90% larval arrest. When shifting late larval stage and adult animals from 14C to 25C, it takes 8-12 hours to see effects on locomotion and SV density.

KG5148 unc-104(ce833[5xMyc::AID::unc-104+sup-1(e995)]) II. The Auxin Inducible Degron (AID) flanked by a 5X Myc/spacer tag on left and a single spacer on the right is fused to the N-terminus of the unc-104 gene. Allows conditional degradation of UNC-104 protein when combined with tissue specific expression of TIR1 in the presence of 1 mM Auxin in plate media. Note: KG5148 does not express TIR1. On standard plates: wild type growth, appearance, and locomotion rate. For animals expressing a TIR1 transgene in the nervous system: Animals that hatch and develop on 1 mM Auxin plates generally remain tightly coiled near the location of hatching and exhibit slow growth (up to 7 days to reach adulthood, with 98% reaching adulthood by 7 days). Adults placed on Auxin abruptly lose about 75% of their locomotion function between 6 and 12 hours after plating. The remaining locomotion function is lost gradually between 12 and 52 hours.
