Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
LN167 rpn-6.2(rc2[rpn-6.2::GFP]) III. RPN-6.2 is a sperm-specific proteasome subunit. CRISPR/Cas9 GFP insertion. Robust RPN-6.2::GFP expression in developing and mature sperm.
LN170 rpn-6.2(rc3[GFP + SEC::rpn-6.2b]) III. Roller. Reduced brood size and reduced sperm count. CRISPR/Cas9 GFP insertion at amino acid 216 of RPN-6.2a. Expression of GFP in the spermatogenic germline. The SEC (self excising cassette) contains the stop codon and transcriptional termination signal for GFP as well as a sqt-1(d) allele. Pick rollers to maintain the strain with the SEC. Excision will result in an in frame fusion of GFP at amino acid 216 of RPN-6.2a or amino acid 5 of RPN-6.2b.
