Strain Genotype Species Description
AFS0205 zen-4(cle5) IV. C. elegans Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle5), GAC to AAC (D520N), and one silent mutation, GCA to GCT at codon 519, that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. A previous deposited version of this strain, zen-4(ok153), possessed two mis-sense mutations: GAC to AAC (D520N) and GAT to AAT (D735N).Reference: Farboud B, et al.

AFS0222 zen-4(cle10ts) IV C. elegans Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle10), GAC to AAC (D520N), and two silent mutations. One silent mutation is a CGA to CGG mutation at codon 523 that creates a recognition site for a Cas9 guide RNA, in order to use zen-4(cle10ts) as a CRISPR/Cas9 co-conversion marker. The other silent mutation is a GCA to GCT mutation at codon 519 that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. Reference: Farboud B, et al.

TY4949 spo-11(me44) rec-8(ok978)/nT1 IV; +/nT1[qIs51] V. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP, and segregate GFP+ heterozygotes, non-GFP homozygotes, and inviable nT1[qIs51] aneuploid embryos. Homozygous progeny of heterozygous mothers are viable, but produce mostly dead embryos. Reference: Severson AF, et al. Genes Dev. 2009 Aug 1;23(15):1763-78.
TY5124 spo-11(me44) rec-8(ok978)/nT1 IV; coh-4(tm1857) coh-3(gk112)/nT1[qIs51] V. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP, and segregate GFP+ heterozygotes, non-GFP homozygotes, and inviable nT1[qIs51] aneuploid embryos. Homozygous progeny of heterozygous mothers are viable, but produce mostly dead embryos. Reference: Severson AF & Meyer BJ. 2014. eLife. 2014 Aug 29;3:e03467.
TY5425 spo-11(me44)/nT1 IV; coh-4(tm1857) coh-3(gk112)/nT1[qIs51] V. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP, and segregate GFP+ heterozygotes, non-GFP homozygotes, and inviable nT1[qIs51] aneuploid embryos.

TY5434 syIs44 V. C. elegans syIs44 [hsp-16p::lacI::GFP + lacO(256) + dpy-20(+)] V. Heatshock induces expression of lacI::GFP in the soma, which binds to integrated lacO arrays. lacI::GFP expression is silenced in the germline. Derived by out-crossing PS2442 to remove e1282.
