Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
CB4035 fem-2(e2105)/unc-45(r450) dpy-1(e1) III. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT and DpyUnc. 1/3 of the WT are fem-2 homozygotes. Homozygous fem-2 animals are hermaphrodites if mother was heterozygous for fem-2, and are fertile females if mother was homozygous for fem-2.
CP36 Cbr-fem-2(nm27) III. XX animals have no obvious phenotype: self-fertile with normal brood size. XO animals are self-fertile hermaphrodites with low brood size and some somatic gonad defects. Cbr-fem-2/+ XO animals show late-onset germline feminization. AF16 was the parental strain.
CP89 Cbr-fem-2(nm27) III; Cbr-fem-3(nm63) IV. XX are self-fertile hermaphrodites.
DH245 fem-2(b245) III. Temperature sensitive. XX animals make no sperm. Temperature sensitive period in L1. Maternal effect. XO animals are intersexual males. Temperature sensitive period in soma is L1-L3. Temperature sensitive period in germline is L2-adult.
