Strain Genotype Description
MQ452 aptf-2(qm27) IV. Dorsal protrusions on head and tail. Head frequently twisted. 30% of embryos die. 86% of larvae die. 44% of adult survivors show a mutant phenotype. Full zygotic and maternal rescue.
VC1928 Y62E10A.17(gk902) IV/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). Y62E10A.17. Homozygous 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 gk902 homozygotes (mostly sterile; eggs sometimes hatch but larvae are abnormal and arrest). Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: TGATTCAGTTGGCGTCTCTG. External right primer: TCTCGTCGTCTCATCCCTCT. Internal left primer: AACCCGTTGAGACACGATTC. Internal right primer: CCATTCCATTACTTGGCACA. Internal WT amplicon: 2267 bp. Deletion size: 1096 bp. Deletion left flank: TGCTGACATACATTCTCTGAAATATTTGGA. Deletion right flank: TTTTTCTGTGCCGCACTTTGGTTTTTTTTA. 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.
