Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
TK22 mev-1(kn1) III. Methylviologen (paraquat) sensitive. Oxygen sensitive. Short life span.
TM185 daf-2(e1370) mev-1(kn1) III. Daf-c. Maintain at 15C. Sensitive to hyperoxia and paraquot, comparable to mev-1(kn1) alone. High mutation rate. Extended lifespan measured after mid-adult stage is similar to daf-2(e1370) alone. High mortality rate in early adults. Reference: Honda Y, Tanaka M, Honda S. Exp Gerontol. 2008 Jun;43(6):520-9.
VC848 mev-1(ok909) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). T07C4.7. Homozygous sterile 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 ok909 homozygotes (sterile Unc). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Note: qIs48 has been observed to recombine off hT2, typically leaving behind a functional homozygous viable hT2 with Bli-4 phenotype. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. 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.
