Strain Genotype Species Description
AUM1054 gsk-3(tm2223) I/hT2[bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C. elegans Homozygous sterile mutation balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP sterile tm2223 homozygotes. Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. Reference: Furuta T, et al. Development. 2018 May 14;145(10). pii: dev161042. doi: 10.1242/dev.161042.
AUM2023 daf-2(e1370) unc-119(ed3) III; vizIs23. C. elegans vizIs23 [pie-1p::GFP::daf-2(WT)::pie-1 3'UTR + unc-119(+)]. Maintain at 15C; pick superficially wild-type animals to avoid silencing of the transgene. pie-1 driven DAF-2 coding region with GFP transgene rescues the germline defects of daf-2(e1370). Slow growing. The transgene is sometimes silenced in the germline resulting in dauerunc animals at 25C. Reference: Lopez AL 3rd, et al. Dev Cell. 2013 Oct 28;27(2):227-40.
AUM2059 vizSi20 II; unc-119(ed3) III. C. elegans vizSi20 [mex-5p::GFP::gsk-3 (K65A,E77A,D161A,D180A)::tbb-2 3’UTR + unc-119(+)] II. Superficially wild-type. vizSi20 was inserted into Chr II ttTi5605 using MosSci. GSK-3 cDNA was rendered kinase dead by replacing K65, E77, D161 and D180 to alanine. The transgene does not rescue gsk-3 sterility or embryonic lethality defects. Reference: Furuta T, et al. Development. 2018 May 14;145(10). pii: dev161042. doi: 10.1242/dev.161042.
AUM2071 vizSi32 II; unc-119(ed3) III. C. elegans vizSi32 [cdk-2p(intron)::GFP::tbb-2 3’ UTR + unc-119(+)] II. vizSi32 was inserted into ttTi5605 on Chr II using MosSci. Intron 1 of cdk-2 drives drives GFP expression in this transgene. Reference: Furuta T, et al. Development. 2018 May 14;145(10). pii: dev161042. doi: 10.1242/dev.161042.
AUM2073 vizSi34 II; unc-119(ed3) III. C. elegans vizSi34 [cdk-2p::GFP::tbb-2 3’ UTR + unc-119(+)] II. Superficially wild-type. vizSi34 was inserted into ttTi5605 on Chr II using MosSci. Predicted cdk-2 promoter (from WormBase) drives GFP expression. Reference: Furuta T, et al. Development. 2018 May 14;145(10). pii: dev161042. doi: 10.1242/dev.161042.
BS3727 lip-1(ok154) IV. C. elegans Temperature-sensitive allele. Can be grown at 20C with reduced fertility. Defects in pachytene progression, small oocyte formation and Emo are highly penetrant at 25C. ok154 is a null allele; 1504 bp deletion from -156 bp to +1348 bp, removes the start codon.

BS3760 rskn-1(ok159) I. C. elegans Ectopic ERK MPK-1 (detected by dpMPK-1 immunostaining) in the loop region. Reference: Proc Natl Acad Sci USA. Das D, et al. 2022 Jan 18;119(3):e2113649119. PMID: 35022236
