Strain Genotype Description
TB1 ceh-6(mg60)/dpy-5(e61) unc-29(e1072) I. ceh-6(mg60) is lethal. Maintain by picking WT and check that it throws 1/4 Dpys. mg60 is a 1.3 kb deletion that removes part of the conserved POU-specific domain. PCR with primers PCR6-5 GAA-TTC-ATG-AAA-TCG-GAG-GCG-T (->) and PCR6-3 GTG-AGA-AGT-GAA-GAG-GAT-TGT-A (<-) yields a band of about 1.6 kb instead of 280 bp as in N2. Backcrossed more than 10 times; in addition, the left arm of LG I was recombined with lin-28 to remove the mutator locus.
VC1441 ceh-6(gk665) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). K02B12.1. Apparent homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP gk665 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: GAGACAGACGAATGCAACGA. External right primer: GTGCCTTCTTTTTCCAACCA. Internal left primer: ACAGAAGAAAGGGCGGAAAT. Internal right primer: CAACTTCCAACTGCTTTGGG. Internal WT amplicon: 2295 bp. Deletion size: 1525 bp. Deletion left flank: GAAGGTACATTAGTGAATAGGAAAATAATA. Deletion right flank: AGACATTGATGCTGTAGAATTGTGAAGATA. 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.

Internal right primer: CAACTTCCAACTGCTTTGGG. Internal WT amplicon: 2295 bp. Deletion size: 508 bp. Deletion left flank: AGCGGTCTTTCTGCGTCTCGTCTAGCCACC.

VC2666 ceh-6(ok3388) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). K02B12.1. Homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP ok3388 homozygotes (early larval arrest). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: TCTCTTTCTTCCAGCTTGCC. External right primer: TAGGGCCAGAAAATTGAACG. Internal left primer: AAATGTAGAATTGGGCGAGC. Internal right primer: GGTAGGCGCACATACCATTT. Internal WT amplicon: 1129 bp. Deletion size: 405 bp. Deletion left flank: TCTGAATAATTTCAGGTCGTTCAACTTCCT. Deletion right flank: AAAATGGTATGTGCGCCTACCAATTGAAAA. Insertion Sequence: AAAAGGATTCA. 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.
