Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
TY5684 sdc-2(y93) X. Temperature-sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Complements other sdc-2 alleles at 15C. At 20C animals are not Dpy or Tra, but there is a low penetrance of lethality, some Egl animals, and some animals will Bag after a couple days of egg-laying. y93 fails to complement other sdc-2 alleles at 25C; homozygotes are Egl,Tra and weakly Dpy at higher temperatures. Shifting embryos (prepared from non-Dpy non-Egl non-Tra gravid adults at 20C) from 20C to 25C is sufficient to alter their phenotype. Reference: Nusbaum C & Meyer BJ. Genetics. 1989 Jul;122(3):579-93.
TY714 +/szT1 [lon-2(e678)] I; sdc-2(y46)/szT1 X. Heterozygotes are WT.
TY824 +/szT1 [lon-2(e678)] I; sdc-2(y74)/szT1 X. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Lon males, and dead eggs. sdc-2(y74)/sdc-2(y74) is lethal, although about 3% of the animals escape the lethality. These animals are extremely Dpy, extensively masculinized, and never fertile.
