Strain Genotype Species Description
GL302 cid-1(rf34) III. C. elegans K10D2.3 Slow development. Reduced fertility. Thermotolerant. Resistant to hydroxyurea.
GL347 zcIs13 V. C. elegans zcIs13 [hsp-6p::GFP + lin-15(+)] V. Stable transgenic line with GFP expression mainly in the posterior intestine, observed from L1 to adult. Perturbation of mitochondrial folding environment induces robust GFP expression throughout the intestines. Derived by outcrossing parental strain SJ4100 to N2 six times to remove suspected background mutations causing uneven transgene expression and low penetrance of sterility.
GL390 aco-2(rf40[aco-2::GFP]) III. C. elegans C-terminal GFP tag inserted into endogenous aco-2 locus. ACO-2::GFP is a mitochondrial marker allowing the examination of native mitochondrial morphology in live animals.
