Strain Genotype Description
VC2105 arx-5(ok1990) III/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Y37D8A.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 ok1990 homozygotes (late larval arrest or sterile adult). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. External left primer: GCTGGATTTTTCTGCGTCTC. External right primer: GGCCAATATGCTTTTCGTGT. Internal left primer: GATACCGTGGCGTTTTTGTT. Internal right primer: CGGGTCTCAACACGAAAAAT. Internal WT amplicon: 2347 bp. Deletion size: 879 bp. Deletion left flank: ATAGAGATTTCGCGTATTTCGCGCACAACA. Deletion right flank: AAAAATCTGTTTTCGGTAGGAATGTTCAAA. 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.
