Strain Genotype Description
AV473 rad-50(ok197) V/nT1 [qIs51] (IV;V). qIs51 [myo-2p::GFP + pes-10p::GFP + F22B7.9p::GFP]. Heterozygotes are wild-type GFP+ and segregate non-GFP ok197 homozygotes (viable, sterile), wild-type GFP+ heterozygotes, and arrested nT1[qIs51] aneuploids. rad-50 homozygotes are viable, produce more than 95% dead eggs and a large fraction of the survivors are male (Him phenotype). Pick wild-type GFP+ and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Reference: Hayashi M, et al. PLoS Genet. 2007 Nov;3(11):e191.
