Strain Genotype Description
LP362 gex-3(cp114[mNG-C1^3xFlag::gex-3]) IV. mNG:GEX-3 endogenously tagged using Cas9-triggered homologous recombination. Reference: Dickinson DJ, et al. Dev Cell. 2017 Aug 21;42(4):416-434.e11. (PMID 28829947).
VC4152 gex-3(gk5235[loxP + myo-2p::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + rps-27p::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP])/+ IV. [NOTE: Please see RG5044 for balanced version of this strain.] Apparent homozygous lethal or sterile deletion as unbalanced heterozygote. Deletion of 2546 bp with Calarco/Colaiacovo selection cassette conferring myo-2::GFP and G418 resistance inserted at break. Pick viable fertile GFP+ animals to maintain. Left flanking sequence: GTCGACGTTCGAATATGTACAAGAAAAGTC. Right flanking sequence: TGCTTCATCTGGTCATATGGTTTGGAGTGA. Please reference Au et al., G3 9(1): 135-144 2019 in any work resulting from use of this mutation.
WM43 gex-3(zu196) IV/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-?] (IV;V). Heterozygotes are Unc and segregate Unc, WT which give only dead eggs, and dead eggs. Zygotic phenotype: 100% of gex-3 homozygotes become Egl although they all make a normal looking L3/L4 vulva. Embryonic phenotype: complete loss of morphogenesis - hypodermal cells fail to intercalate or migrate. Received new stock from Erik Lundquist 11/2003.
