Strains contributed by this laboratory

Strain Genotype Species Description
BOX163 erm-1(mib9[erm-1[T544D]]) I. C. elegans Homozygous viable. Modification of endogenous erm-1 locus mimics ERM-1(T544) phosphorylation. Variant affects ERM-1 localization and dynamics. Reduced brood size, increased embryonic and larval lethality. Reference: Ramalho JJ, et al. Development. 2020 Jul 22;147(14):dev188011. PMID: 32586975
BOX165 erm-1(mib10[erm-1[T544A]]) I. C. elegans Homozygous viable. Modification of endogenous erm-1 locus mimics non-phosphorylated ERM-1(T544). Variant affects ERM-1 localization and dynamics. Reduced brood size, increased embryonic and larval lethality. Reference: Ramalho JJ, et al. Development. 2020 Jul 22;147(14):dev188011. PMID: 32586975
BOX188 maph-1.1(mib12[GFP::maph-1.1]) I. C. elegans Endogenous maph-1.1 locus tagged with GFP using CRISPR/Cas9. Animals are homozygous viable and express GFP::maph-1.1 ubiquitously. Reference: Waaijers S, et al. BMC Biol. 2016 Aug 9;14:66. doi: 10.1186/s12915-016-0286-x. PMID: 27506200
BOX213 erm-1(mib15[erm-1::eGFP]) I. C. elegans Endogenous erm-1 locus tagged with eGFP. Homozygous viable, partially functional endogenous erm-1 tag. erm-1::GFP animals have a reduced brood size and incomplete outgrowth of the excretory canal, but show no other developmental or morphological abnormalities.
BOX215 erm-1(mib16[erm-1[T544D]::GFP]) I. C. elegans Homozygous viable. Endogenous erm-1 locus tagged with eGFP and modified to mimic ERM-1(T544) phosphorylation. Variant affects ERM-1 localization and dynamics. Reduced brood size, increased embryonic and larval lethality. eGFP-tagged ERM-1 is not fully functional: animals have a reduced brood size and incomplete outgrowth of the excretory canal, but show no other developmental or morphological abnormalities. The penetrance of intestinal phenotypes is slightly higher than in untagged T544 mutants, presumably owing to a detrimental influence of the COOH-terminal GFP tag. Reference: Ramalho JJ, et al. Development. 2020 Jul 22;147(14):dev188011. PMID: 32586975
BOX218 erm-1(mib19[erm-1[T544A]::GFP]) I. C. elegans Homozygous viable. Endogenous erm-1 locus tagged with eGFP and modified to mimic non-phosphorylated ERM-1(T544). Variant affects ERM-1 localization and dynamics. Reduced brood size, increased embryonic and larval lethality. eGFP-tagged ERM-1 is not fully functional: animals have a reduced brood size and incomplete outgrowth of the excretory canal, but show no other developmental or morphological abnormalities. The penetrance of intestinal phenotypes is slightly higher than in untagged T544 mutants, presumably owing to a detrimental influence of the COOH-terminal GFP tag. Reference: Ramalho JJ, et al.
