Strain Genotype Description
VC733 rib-2(gk318) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). K01G5.6. Homozygous viable or 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 gk318 homozygotes (often sterile, lays eggs that don't hatch; some eggs hatch and develop to fertile adulthood). 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.

XA4900 rib-2(qa4900)/qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339) III. Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT and Sterile Dpys. Homozygous rib-2(qa4900) animals give homozygous F2 animals that can develop to the adult stage but exhibit abnormal phenotypes such as egg-laying defects, increased body width, and reduced activity in movement. While the F2 qa4900 homozygotes are fertile, the F3 qa4900 homozygous progeny stop developing during gastrulation and fail to develop normally. 511 bp deletion in the region of intron2 to exon 6 of the rib-2 gene (K01G5.6).
