Strain Genotype Description
MT5006 ced-8(n1891) X. Engulfment of cell corpses defective. Zygotic recessive.
MT5007 ced-8(n1999) X. Cell corpses unengulfed.
VC2547 +/szT1 [lon-2(e678)] I; ced-8(ok3213)/szT1 X. F08F1.5. Apparent homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by lon-2-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, Lon-2 males, arrested szT1 aneuploids, and ok3213 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: CAAATATCAGCACCAATGCG. External right primer: TGCAATGTGCTCCTATGCTC. Internal left primer: CTTACCTGCAAAACCGCTTC. Internal right primer: CAATCTTTCATTTTTGGGCG. Internal WT amplicon: 1179 bp. Deletion size: 649 bp. Deletion left flank: CTTTCTCAATCTTACCTGCAAAACCGCTTC. Deletion right flank: GTGACCGCAAACTGATTAGTCTCTTGAAAT. Insertion Sequence: ACCGCAAAC. 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.
