Strains carrying this gene

Strain Genotype Description
AD266 egg-4(tm1508) egg-5(ok1781) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP tm1508 ok1781 homozygotes (maternal sterile). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Reference: Parry JM, et al 2009 Current Biology 19(20):1752-7.
