Strain Genotype Description
HS399 let-526(os37) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Heterozygotes are WT and GFP+. os37 homozygotes are Lvl and Psa. Pick GFP+ heterozygotes to maintain. qIs48 is an insertion of ccEx9747 with markers: myo-2::GFP expressed brightly in the pharynx throughout development, pes-10::GFP expressed in embryos, and a gut promoter driving GFP in the intestine, and is homozygous lethal. Reference: Shibata Y, et al. Dev Biol. 2012 Jan 15;361(2):349-57.
KR499 let-526(h185) dpy-5(e61) unc-13(e450) I; sDp2 (I;f). Animals with the duplication are Unc. Animals which have lost the duplication are DpyUnc and arrest in early larval development.
KR730 let-526(h405) dpy-5(e61) unc-13(e450) I; sDp2 (I;f). Animals with the duplication are Unc. Animals which have lost the duplication are DpyUnc and arrest in early/mid larval development.
RA521 let-526(tm4795) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by hT2. GFP+ heterozygotes are wild-type and segregate wild-type GFP+, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP tm4795 homozygotes. tm4795 homozygotes arrest as early larvae. Pick wild-type GFP+ animals to maintain. Reference: Large EE and Mathies LD (2014 Jan 8). G3, doi: 10.1534/g3.113.009852.
VC1732 let-526(gk816) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C01G8.9. Apparent homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP gk816 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. (Note: in this strain hT2[qIs48] occasionally recombines such that the GFP and its associated lethality are lost and the non-GFP hT2 left behind still carries the bli-4 mutation of the original hT2. Such a recombination event results in a viable non-GFP animal that is no longer gk816/hT2[qIs48] but is gk816/hT2.) External left primer: GCCATCACTTTCATCGGATT. External right primer: AATAGACGGCACGTGGAAAC. Internal left primer: ATTCGTTGTTGATAAGCCGC. Internal right primer: ATGACCGATGATGATGACGA. Internal WT amplicon: 1843 bp. Deletion size: 1268 bp. Deletion left flank: AGACATAGACGTCATGCGAAAAATAATATA. Deletion right flank: TCTATATATTCTCCGCGTGGTGGGCTATTT. Insertion Sequence: TATAT.
