Strain Genotype Description
ATD6 par-6(zu222) unc-101(m1)/hIn1[unc-54(h1040)] I; unc-119(ed3) III; zuIs45 V. zuIs45 [nmy-2p::nmy-2::GFP + unc-119(+)] V. Balanced worms are wild-type and segregate wild-type (heterozygotes), Coil Par (par-6 unc-101 homozygotes; maternal effect lethal), and paralyzed Unc (hIn1 homozygotes). Par phenotype is slightly leaky, but survivors are agametic. NMY-2::GFP is expressed in the germline and somatic gonad. Cross of JJ1473 and KK818. Unknown if unc-119(ed3) is still present or homozygous in background. Reference: Small LE & Dawes AT. Mol Biol Cell. 2017 Aug 1;28(16):2220-2231.
FT36 unc-101(m1) par-6(zu170) I; zuIs43. zuIs43[pie-1::GFP::PAR-6::ZF1 + unc-119(+)]. Unc worms. GFP present in early embryos but then degrades in somatic lineages. Rescues Mel phenotype of par-6(zu170).
JJ1578 par-6(zu222) unc-101(m1); zuIs54. zuIs54 [par-6p::par-6::ZF1::GFP + unc-119(+)]. Unc. GFP-tagged PAR-6 that degrades in early embryonic somatic cells; rescues the Par phenotype of par-6(zu222). Delayed gastrulation of endodermal cells. Reference: Nance J, Munro EM, Priess JR. Development. 2003 Nov;130(22):5339-50.
JJ1743 par-6(tm1425)/hIn1 [unc-54(h1040)] I; him-8(e1489) IV. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Uncs, dead larvae (par-6 homozygotes) and males.
KK1248 par-6(it319[par-6::GFP]) I. Superficially wild-type. Made in N2 background.
KK818 par-6(zu222) unc-101(m1)/hIn1 [unc-54(h1040)] I. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, paralyzed Unc, and Coilers which give only dead eggs (slightly leaky, but survivors are agametic). zu222 is a strict maternal effect embryonic lethal. Partitioning defect similar to that of par-3; fails to localize PAR-3 protein.
