Strain Genotype Description
KK112 mel-8(b309) unc-4(e120) sqt-1(sc13)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. mel-8 is a maternal effect lethal. WT heterozygotes (sc13 recessive) segregate WT, MelUncSqt (sick and small), mnC1 dpy-10 unc-52 homozygotes (paralyzed Dpys). Rescued by male mating.
KK364 mel-8(it27) unc-4(e120)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. mel-8 is a maternal effect lethal. WT heterozygotes segregate WT; mel-8 unc-4 homozygotes that lay eggs that don't hatch, and mnC1 dpy-10 unc-52 homozygotes (paralyzed Dpys). Some F2 mel homozygotes hatch, but such escapers arrest at L1 or L2. Previously called mel-6(it27).
