Molecular lesion: P to S at position 24 as well as an amber mutation terminating translation after amino acid 52. DNA replication continues in the absence of mitosis. Mutants enter mitotis at the normal time and form bipolar spindles, but fail chromosome alignment at the metaphase plate, sister chromatid separation and cytokinesis.
SV123 lin-5(n3066)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e128) unc-52(e444)] II. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Stu and DpyUncs. n3066 is a strong loss-of-function or null allele. Molecular lesion: ochre mutation terminating translation at amino acid 538. DNA replication continues in the absence of mitosis. Mutants enter mitotis at the normal time and form bipolar spindles, but fail chromosome alignment at the metaphase plate, sister chromatid separation and cytokinesis.
SV124 lin-5(ev571) II. C. elegans Temperature sensitive - maintain at 15C. Recessive loss-of-function stronger with increases in temperature, nearly WT at 15C. At the non-permissive temperature DNA replication continues in the absence of mitosis. Mutants enter mitosis at the normal time and form bipolar spindles, but fail chromosome alignment at the metaphase plate, sister chromatid separation and cytokinesis. Molecular lesion is a 9 bp duplication followed by a T to C transversion. Mutagen was EMS but mutation likely caused by polymerase slippage.

SV1440 unc-119(ed3) III; heIs105 IV; heSi141 X. C. elegans heIs105 [rps-27::loxP::NLS::mCherry::let858 UTR::loxP::NLS::GFP::let-858 UTR + unc-119(+)] IV. heSi141 [hlh-8(short)::FLAG::CRE::tbb-2 + unc-119(+)] X. Maintain at 15-25C. Expression of CRE recombinase in the mesoblast lineage driven by the hlh-8 promoter. heIs105 carries a read-out construct which allows the visualization of the CRE lox mediated recombination in the mesoblast lineage by a switch from red to green. This read-out construct is silenced in the germline. Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.
SV1448 fzr-1(ku298) II; unc-119(ed3) III; heSi143 IV; heSi141 X. C. elegans heSi 143 [rps-27::loxP::mCherry::let-858::fzr-1p::fzr-1::fzr-1 UTR::loxP::GFP::let-858 UTR + unc-119(+)] IV. heSi141 [hlh-8(short)::FLAG::CRE::tbb-2 + unc-119(+)] X. Maintain at 15-25C. Expression of CRE recombinase in the mesoblast lineage driven by the hlh-8 promoter. heSi143 rescues fzr-1(ku298). fzr-1 will be excised upon mesoblast-specific expression of CRE, creating a mesoblast specific mutant of fzr-1. This recombination event can be visualized by a switch from red to green in those cells (the mesoblast) were fzr-1 is lost. Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.
SV1450 unc-119(ed3) III; heIs145 IV C. elegans heIs145 [rps-27::loxP::NLS::mCherry::let858 UTR::eft-3::tagBFP::tbb-2 UTR::loxP::NLS::GFP::let-858 UTR + unc-119(+)] IV. Maintain at 15-25C. heIs145 expresses a read-out construct used to visualize CRE activity and specificity, and to test whether CRE expression is likely to induce loss of a gene of interest (tagBFP in this case) in a given tissue. Expression of CRE will result in a change from mCherry to GFP and loss of tagBFP expression in those cells where CRE is active. Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.

Expression of CRE recombinase in differentiated body wall muscle cells driven by the myo-3 promoter. [NOTE: this stock carries an unidentified red fluorescent transgene in the background. The strain's description will be updated as more is learned.] Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.
SV1472 unc-119(ed3) III; heSi160 X. C. elegans heSi160 [hsp16.48::Cre] X. Transgene allows inducible expression of CRE recombinase. Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-313. PMID: 26144318.
SV1547 unc-119(ed3) III; heSi172 X. C. elegans heSi172 [lin-31::CRE::tbb-2 UTR + unc-119(+)] X. Inserted at ttTi14024. Expression of CRE recombinase in vulva precursor cells driven by the lin-31 promoter. Strain is viable at 15-25 C, but non-tissue specific recombination is observed more frequently in other tissues (mainly seam cells) at higher temperatures (25C). Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.
SV1578 unc-119(ed3) III; heIs105 IV; swsn-1(os22) heSi164 V; heSi141 X. C. elegans heIs105 [rps-27::loxP::NLS::mCherry::let858 UTR::loxP::NLS::GFP::let-858 UTR + unc-119(+)] IV. heSi164 [rps-27::loxN::NLS::mCherry::let858 UTR::swsn-1p::swsn-1::unc-54 UTR::loxN::NLS::GFP::let-858 UTR + unc-119(+)] V. heSi141 [hlh-8(short)::FLAG::CRE::tbb-2 + unc-119(+)] X. Maintain the line at 15C and shift to 25C for mutant analysis. Expression of CRE recombinase in the mesoblast lineage driven by the hlh-8 promoter. heSi164 carries a swsn-1 rescue construct which ensures rescue of the temperature-sensitive swsn-1(os22) mutation. Upon expression of CRE (in this case in the mesoblast lineage) the swsn-1 gene will be excised, creating a mesoblast specific mutant of swsn-1. This recombination event can be visualized by a switch from red to green in those mesoblast cells in which swsn-1 was lost. The animals are healthy at 15C, but embryonic lethal and larval arrested at 23-25C. swsn-1(os22) causes mild overproliferation in the mesoblast lineage. The swsn-1 rescuing transgene is unable to rescue germline development of swsn-1(os22) mutants. Reference: Ruijtenberg S & van den Heuvel S. Cell. 2015 Jul 16;162(2):300-13.

Heterozygotes produce 1/4 thin, sterile, uncoordinated animals that fail to undergo postembryonic somatic cell divisions. rnr::GFP is expressed during S-phase in heterozygous animals. rnr::GFP expression is not detected in heDf1 animals. Although the map position of maIs103 has not been determined conclusively, maIs103 genetically behaves linked to cdk-4. Maintain by picking several single animals and scoring for 1/4 mutant progeny.
SV275 cdk-4(he111) maIs103/+ X. C. elegans maIs103[rnr::GFP unc-36(+)] X. Heterozygotes produce 1/4 thin, sterile, uncoordinated animals that fail to undergo postembryonic somatic cell divisions. rnr::GFP is expressed during S-phase in heterozygous animals. rnr::GFP expression is not detected in heDf1 animals. Although the map position of maIs103 has not been determined conclusively, maIs103 genetically behaves linked to cdk-4. Maintain by picking several single animals and scoring for 1/4 mutant progeny.
SV31 cdk-1(n3064)/qC1 [dpy-19(e1259) glp-1(q339)] III. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpySteriles (qC1 homozygotes) and Sterile Uncs which have a head region that is broader than the tail region and have no postembryonic cell divisions. Previously called ncc-1(n3064).
SV314 rol-1(e91) cyd-1(he112)/mnC1 [dpy-10(e28) unc-52(e444)] II. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpyUncs, and rol-1 cyd-1 homozygotes which are thin, sterile, uncoordinated animals. rol-1 is largely suppressed by cyd-1. No postembryoinc cell divisions take place in cyd-1.

SV411 heDf1 maIs103/lon-2(e678) unc-9(e101) X. C. elegans maIs103[rnr::GFP unc-36(+)] X. The heDf1 deletion includes cdk-4. Heterozygotes produce 1/4 thin, sterile, uncoordinated animals that fail to undergo postembryonic somatic cell divisions. heDf1 mutants are of L1 size, smaller than cdk-4 mutants. lon-2 and unc-9 do not exactly balance heDf1, but unc-9 is pretty close. It should also be possible to follow the heterozygotes by looking at the GFP. Despite trying, unable to separate the maIs integration from heDf1 or the other cdk-4 alleles. By maintaining animals with GFP (visible especially in early animals and in eggs) you should be able to maintain heDf1. rnr::GFP is expressed during S-phase in heterozygous animals. rnr::GFP expression is not detected in heDf1 animals. maIs103 is tightly linked to heDf1.
