Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
MQ523 mau-8(qm57) IV. Maternal effect uncoordinated. Lethargic, kinky jerky, ratchet-like movement in reverse. Constipated due to frequent absence of the expulsion contraction. 15% embryonic lethality. 16% larval lethality.
VC1181 mau-8(ok1592) IV/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). Y62E10A.8. Homozygous lethal 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 ok1592 homozygotes (thin twitcher, late larval or sterile adult arrest). Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: TTTTTCCGGGTTTTACTGGA. External right primer: AGGAGAATGGGAGGCTCTTC. Internal left primer: GCGGGTTACTGTAGCAGCTC. Internal right primer: TCACTTGCATATCCACCAGC. Internal WT amplicon: 2234 bp. Deletion size: 593 bp. Deletion left flank: CCTTTTTTGATTTTTTAGAAAAAAACTTTT. Deletion right flank: TGTGAATATTTGACACGAATCGTTAAGATT.
