Strain Genotype Description
JK2663 dpy-11(e224) mes-4(bn67) V/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-? qIs50] (IV;V). qIs50 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 (F22B7.9) driving GFP in the intestine. Segregates non-glowing Dpys that are Mes (produce only sterile progeny) and glowing Unc heterozygotes. nT1[unc-?(n754) let-? qIs50] is also known as DnT1[qIs50]. qIs50 is apparently inserted on DnT1. qIs50 is somewhat dimmer than the similar qIs51. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it directly 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.
SS268 dpy-11(e224) mes-4(bn23) unc-76(e911) V/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-?] (IV;V). Heterozygotes are Unc (n754 is a dominant Unc and recessive lethal). Throws DpyUncs which give sterile progeny. The maternal effect sterility is 99% expressed, 100% strict, and is associated with 2% maternal effect embryonic lethality.
VC1874 mes-4(ok2326) V/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). Y2H9A.1. Homozygous maternal effect sterile deletion chromosome balanced by GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested nT1[qIs51] aneuploids, and non-GFP ok2326 homozygotes (maternal effect sterile). Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: AGTTCTTGCGGTTTTTCGTG. External right primer: TTCCAGCTACCTTCACCCAC. Internal left primer: GGTGTCGGCTACAGGTTGAT. Internal right primer: GCCACGAAAGTTTCTGAGTG. Internal WT amplicon: 3258 bp. Deletion size: 1596 bp. Deletion left flank: TCTGAAAATGACAATTGGCAAAATATAAAA. Deletion right flank: AAATTATCATTTCGAACTTCTCCACTTTCC. Insertion Sequence: A. Attribution: This strain was provided by the C. elegans Reverse Genetics Core Facility at the University of British Columbia, which is part of the international C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use.
