Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
CB1339 mec-4(e1339) X. Mechanosensory abnormal. Scored with difficulty. Sometimes sensitive in the tail. M-MATING++ 1-10%WT.
CB1611 mec-4(e1611) X. Mechanosensory abnormal. Touch insensitive. Dominant. Cells become vacuolated and die.
CB3274 lon-2(e678) mec-4(e1497) X. Long. Mechanosensory abnormal.
DR113 lon-2(e678) mec-4(e1339) X. Long. Mechanosensory Abnormal. Sometimes touch sensitive in tail.
IC136 zdIs5 I; vab-1(dx31) II. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)].Animals contain GFP expressed in the touch neurons and have a notched head phenotype.
IC156 zdIs5 I; quIs4. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)]. quIs4 [mec-4::myr::vab-1(G912E) + rol-6(su1006)]. Animals contain GFP expressed in the touch neurons.
IC400 zdIs5 I; quIs5 II; him-5(e1490) V. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)]. quIs5 [mec-4::myr::vab-1 + rol-6(su1006)]. Animals contain GFP expressed in the touch neurons.
NG4370 zdIs5 I; pig-1(gm344) IV. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)].
SK4005 zdIs5 I. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)]. mec-4::GFP is expressed in touch neurons.
TL24 zdIs5 I; clr-1(cy14) II; slt-1(eh15) X. zdIs5 [mec-4::GFP + lin-15(+)]. cy14 was isolated in a screen for suppressors of the AVM axon ventral guidance defect of slt-1 null mutant. cy14 is a G-to-A transition in the splice acceptor of intron 5 of clr-1 that leads to the use of a cryptic splice acceptor and consequently to an 18 bp deletion in exon 6.
TU253 mec-4(u253) X. Mechanosensory abnormal. Recessive.
