Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
JH2523 fbf-2(q738) II; axIs1722. axIs1722 [pie-1p::GFP::H2B::fog-1 3'UTR + unc-119(+)]. Maintain at 25C to maintain transgene expression. Unknown if ed3 is still in background.
JH2877 fbf-2(q738) II; pgl-1(ct131) him-3(e1147) III; axIs1722. axIs1722 [pie-1p::GFP::H2B::fog-1 3'UTR + unc-119(+)]. Maintain at 25C to maintain transgene expression. Unknown if ed3 is still in background.
JH3201 fbf-2(ax2057[fbf-2::GFP]) II. Maintain at 20-25C. ax2057 was produced by mutation of the sgRNA site and insertion of GFP cDNA at the C-terminus of fbf-2. Insertion of GFP cDNA (from pCM1.53, no ATG/no STOP) at the C-terminus of fbf-2: ATCATCGCCGTGACTACCA(GFP) between II:6089145...6089165. sgRNA site was mutated to avoid Cas9 re-cutting.

JK3101 fbf-2(q738) II. Grows well as a homozygote, possibly small percent Fog. 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.
JK3107 fbf-1(ok91) fbf-2(q704)/mIn1 [dpy-10(e128) mIs14] II. Heterozygotes are non-Dpy with a green pharynx and a WT germ line. fbf-1 fbf-2 homozygotes are non-Dpy, GFP-, and have small germ lines containing only sperm. mIn1[mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] homozygotes are Dpy, GFP+ and have a WT germ line. 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.
JK3447 fog-1(q250)/sep-1(e2406) I; fbf-1(ok91) fbf-2(q704)/mIn1 [mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] II. To maintain, check individual fertile worms for both Sep and Fog offspring. sep-1 homozygotes are sterile at 20C and 25C (Sterile and Unc at 25C), and mostly normal at 15C. fog-1; fbf-1 fbf-2 homozygotes have small germ lines and are often Muv. Best to maintain at 25C for scoring. 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.
JK3965 fbf-1(ok91) fbf-2(q704)/mIn1 [mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] II; fem-3(e1996)/qIs24 IV. qIs24 [lag-2p::GFP]. Maintain by picking individual animals with green DTCs and green pharynx and scoring offspring for Fems and Fbfs. fem-3 is not well balanced by qIs24. fbf-1 fbf-2 homozygotes are germline proliferation defective and make only sperm. fem-3 homozygotes make only oocytes. fbf-1 fbf-3; fem-3 proliferates more than fbf-1 fbf-2 and makes only oocytes; also Muv. qIs24 contains lag-2::GFP; Distal Tip Cells are green; homozygotes are Rollers and heterozygotes Roll weakly. mIn1 is Dpy and GFP+ in the pharynx. 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.
JK5842 fbf-2(q932) II. q932 is 3xV5::fbf-2 tagged endogenous locus. Superficially wild-type. Reference: Shin et al. (2017) PLoS Genet. 2017;13(12):e1007121.
