Strain Genotype Species Description
BY250 vtIs7. C. elegans vtIs7 [dat-1p::GFP]. Integrated reporter with bright GFP observable in all dopaminergic neurons and processes. No behavioral changes have been noted in relation to transgene integration. DA neuron degeneration is evident with easily detectible loss of GFP expression (e.g. Hardaway et al, J. Neurosci, 2015). Reference: Nass, R., et al. (2002). "Neurotoxin-induced degeneration of dopamine neurons in Caenorhabditis elegans." Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 99(5): 3264-3269.
