Strain Genotype Description
LX658 mnDp33 (X;IV)/+ IV; unc-20(e112) rgs-7(vs92) X. Heterozygotes are WT. Animals which have lost the duplication are Unc and homozygous for rgs-7. Animals which are homozygous for the duplication are dead. Unc is temperature sensitive. vs92 is a 361 bp deletion which removes the 3' splice site of exon 6, all of exon 7 and half of exon 8. All of the deleted region is within the RGS domain.
LX677 rgs-7(vs98)/unc-1(n496) lon-2(e678) X. Heterozygotes are Unc but not Lon. n496 is dominant. Segregates LonUnc. vs98 homozygotes are non-Unc, non-Lon and are Mel (they give only dead eggs). Strain will break down due to recombination so check for the presence of vs98 by PCR every few generations. Received new stock Feb 2005.
RB1937 rgs-7(ok2540) X. F56B6.2. Homozygous. Outer Left Sequence: ACAGCGCAAGGTAGGTCAAT. Outer Right Sequence: ATCCCCAACAAAATTGGTCA. Inner Left Sequence: GAGTGTCGTCTGCTGGTTCA. Inner Right Sequence: CAGTTTCTCACCTCATCGCA. Inner Primer PCR Length: 3326 bp. Deletion Size: 1491 bp. Deletion left flank: CGTTGCCTTTCATTGCCCACGCACCCGCTA. Deletion right flank: CAGATTCAATGTTGAACACTTATCTGAGAA. Attribution: This strain was provided by the C. elegans Gene Knockout Project at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, which was part of the International C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use.
