Strains contributed by this laboratory

Strain Genotype Species Description
OK245 pyr-1(cu8) unc-4(e120)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Dpy Steriles (mnC1 homozygotes), and Unc-4 animals which have a partially penetrant Mel phenotype.
OK257 peb-1(cu9)/dpy-3(e27) unc-2(e55) X. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpyUncs, and peb-1(cu9) homozygotes which arrest as larvae with a stuffed pharynx, abnormal hindgut and g1 gland cell morphology, and molting defects.
OK286 pyr-1(cu8) II. C. elegans Partially penetrant Mel.
OK29 cuIs1 V. C. elegans cuIs1 [ceh-22::GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Rollers.
OK39 cuIs2 IV. C. elegans cuIs2 [myo-2c:: GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Rollers.
OK499 ceh-28(cu11) X. C. elegans Stuffed pharynx. Slow growth.
OK66 daf-4(m72) III; cuIs2/+ IV. C. elegans cuIs2 [myo-2c:: GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. daf-4(m72) is a temperature sensitive dauer constitutive mutant. Maintain at 15C. It was problematic to get cuIs2 homozygous in this background. Pick Rollers to maintain.
OK68 cuIs2 IV; daf-3(mgDf90) X. C. elegans Dauer defective. cuIs2 [myo-2c:: GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Rollers. [NOTE: this strain was originally described as carrying daf-3(mg90), which is an old name for daf-3(mgDf90).]
OK814 nfyb-1(cu13) II. C. elegans Superficially wild-type. Reference: Milton AC, et al. Dev Biol. 2013 Oct 1;382(1):38-47.
PD8292 ceh-22(cc8266) V/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-?] (IV;V). C. elegans Heterozygotes are Unc and segregate Uncs, non-Uncs and dead eggs.
