Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
ER10 unc-123(jd5) III. Temperature sensitive, semidominant mutant that is Unc when moving backward. Dorsal muscular contraction is stronger than that of ventral, resulting in an asymmetric pattern of locomotion in which the animal either forms a dorsal coil or moves in circles with the dorsal side central to the circle. Most likely a gain of function allele of sup-1.
ER50 unc-123(jd5jd10) III. Recessive suppressor of unc-123(jd5). Exhibits a subtle dorsal asymmetric locomotory defect as a homozygote when grown at 25C. Dominant suppressor of unc-17(e245). Most likely unc-123 is allelic with sup-1.
