Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
JH3203 mes-2(ax2059[mes-2::GFP]) II. Maintain at 20C. Insertion of GFP cDNA (from pCM1.53, no ATG/no STOP) at the C-terminus of mes-2 between II:14388297...14388298. Reference: Paix A, et al. Genetics. 2014 Sep 23.
SS186 mes-2(bn11) unc-4(e120)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpyUnc and Uncs which give sterile progeny (maternal effect sterile: the progeny from mutant mothers are sterile). The mutation is a strict mel, fully penetrant, and fully expressed. Sterility is due to a failure in germ-cell proliferation.
VC2409 mes-2(ok2480)/mT1 II; +/mT1 [dpy-10(e128)] III. R06A4.7. Homozygous maternal-effect sterile deletion chromosome balanced by dpy-10-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, arrested mT1 aneuploids, sterile Dpys (mT1 homozygotes), and ok2480 homozygotes (maternal-effect sterile). Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: AGAAGTTTCGTGCTCCGTGT. External right primer: CGTCTCTTCGCATAGAACCC. Internal left primer: GTATCGAGGTTGGCGACATT. Internal right primer: CGTGCCAAGTTTCCAATTTT. Internal WT amplicon: 3364 bp. Deletion size: 1262 bp. Deletion left flank: CTATGGCCAAACAAAAGTTCACAGAGAGAA. Deletion right flank: GCCAATCACAGCGTGTCGACATGCGGGTGA. Insertion Sequence: GAA.
