Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
BN224 lem-2(tm1582) bqSi210 II. bqSi210 [lem-2p::lem-2::GFP + unc-119(+)] II. Might contain unc-119(ed3) in the background. Single-copy lem-2::GFP transgene under control of lem-2 regulatory sequences. lem-2(tm1582) embryos arrest when emr-1 is depleted by RNAi; bqSi210 fully rescues this phenotype.

JM311 lem-2(ca19) II. Overall healthy but reduced brood size and pharyngeal pumping rate. Synthetic lethal with emr-1(-). ca19 is a Leu to Arg mutation at position 16 of LEM-2, reconstituting a mutation in the American Hutterite Population that causes juvenile cataracts and premature cardiomyopathy.
VC1317 lem-2(ok1807) II. W01G7.5. Superficially wild type. External left primer: CGACCGAAATCACGAGAAAT. External right primer: CAGACGGAAGCACAAGAACA. Internal left primer: TCGAGACTCGCAGAGGATTT. Internal right primer: GTAGCGACGCGAGACTCATT. Internal WT amplicon: 2741 bp. Deletion size: 2169 bp. Deletion left flank: CTTAATTTCCGGTGAGATATTCTGTAGTTT. Deletion right flank: CTTTTCCTCGTCCCTCGTGAGGAAAAAGTTGCAGTGTCGG.
