Strain Genotype Description
CV98 him-18(tm2181)/qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339) qIs26] III. qIs26 [lag-2::GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Heterozygous animals show roller phenotype and GFP signal at the distal tip cells. Segregates roller GFP(+) heterozygotes, wild-type moving GFP(-) him-18(tm2181) homozygotes. qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339) qIs26] homozygous animals are dead. P0 him-18(tm2181) homozygous animals show 80% embryonic lethality and 12% high incidence of male at F1. Pick roller GFP(+) worms to maintain. Reference: Saito TT, et al. (2009) PLoS Genet 5:e1000735.
