Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
CX3171 sax-3(ky200) X. Defective in the axon guidance of neurons. Maintain at 20C or 25C.
CX3198 sax-3(ky123) X. sax-3 mutants have an anteriorly-displaced nerve ring, defects in axon guidance to the ventral midline, and extra axon crossing at the ventral midline. There are also defects in CAN and HSN cell migration, a notched head and an Egl phenotype. This allele is 80% lethal in embryonic stages. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it from the CGC. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects.
IC361 vab-1(e2)/mIn1 [dpy-10(e128) mIs14] II; sax-3(ky123) X. Heterozygotes are WT and GFP+. mIn1 homozygotes are Dpy and GFP+. vab-1; sax-3 homozygotes are synthetic lethal.
IC459 sax-3(ky123) X; quEx102. quEx102[F25B3.3::SAX-3 + odr-1::RFP]. F25B3.3::SAX-3 partially rescues the lethality and notch phenotype of sax-3(ky123). Maintain by picking RFP+.
IC464 sax-3(ky123) X; quEx100. quEx100 [ajm-1::sax-3 + odr-1::RFP]. ajm-1::sax-3 partially rescues the lethality of sax-3(ky123). Maintain by picking RFP+.
IC476 sax-3(ky123) X; quEx99. quEx99 [sax-3(minigene) + odr-1::RFP]. Rescues the lethality of ky123. Pick RFP+ to maintain.
IC699 sax-3(ky123) ; quEx168. quEx168 [sax-3::GFP + odr-1::RFP]. Pick RFP+ to maintain. GFP is visible at higher magnification but fades quickly. Strongest GFP is in the head region. The Chin-Sang Lab recommends researchers use this strain instead of IC450, as sax-3::GFP expression in IC699 is more consistent than in the comparable strain IC450.
VC4284 sax-3(gk5367[loxP + myo-2p::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + rps-27p::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP]) X. Homozygous viable. Deletion of 11171 bp with Calarco/Colaiacovo selection cassette conferring myo-2::GFP and G418 resistance inserted at break. Left flanking sequence: CAAGTTTGTTCTTGTGTGACGATTCCATTG; Right flanking sequence: GGTGGCTGTTCACTTGCTCCTTATTCGTGA. Please reference Au et al., G3 9(1): 135-144 2019 in any work resulting from use of this mutation.
