Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
KX38 ifg-1(ok1211)/mIn1 [mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] II. Heterozygotes are WT and GFP+. ok1211 homozygotes arrest at L2 stage. mIn1 animals are Dpy and GFP+.
KX54 ifg-1(cxTi9279) II; bcIs39 V. bcIs39 [lim-7p::ced-1::GFP and lin-15(+)] V.  Temperature-sensitive germ cell apoptosis leading to infertility at 25 C. Apoptosing germ cells are decorated by CED-1::GFP in the gonad. Loss of p170 form of IFG-1 (but not p130 IFG-1) confirmed by Western blot. Escaping eggs are fertilized and embryonic lethal. Mos-1 transposon insertion previously described as ifg-1::mos-1(cxP9279) II; confirmed by triple primer PCR with 5’-ACCAAACTGGGCAAACAAAG-3’, 5’-GCTCAATTCGCGCCAAACTATG-3’, and 5’-CTTCCTGAAATTTGGTTTAACAGT-3’. Homozygous ifg-1::mos yields only 444 bp product. Outcrossed heterozygotes yield both 353 bp (wild type ifg-1) and 444 bp products.
VC778 ifg-1(ok1211)/mIn1 [mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] II. M110.4. Homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by GFP- and dpy-10-marked inversion. Heterozygotes are WT with relatively dim pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT dim GFP, Dpy bright GFP (mIn1 homozygotes), and non-GFP ok1211 homozygotes (early larval arrest). Pick WT dim GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
