Strains contributed by this laboratory

Strain Genotype Species Description
VPR108 vprIs108. C. elegans vprIs108 [hlh-17p::GCaMP2.0 + hlh-17p::mCherry]. Variably penetrant backward ventral coiler. GCaMP2.0 green fluorescence is normally very low. Reference: Stout RF, Parpura V., Cell Calcium. 2011 Jul;50(1):98-108.
VPR120 vprEx120. C. elegans vprEx120 [dat-1p::DsRed(monomeric)]. Maintain by picking DsRed+ animals.
VPR127 vprIs127. C. elegans vprIs127 [hlh-17p::GFP]. Unc, backward ventral coiler.
VPR128 vprIs128. C. elegans vprIs128 [hlh-17p::DsRedExpress2]. Unc, backward ventral coiler.
VPR133 vprEx133. C. elegans vprEx133 [hlh-17p::dat-1p::DsRedExpress2]. DsRed2 expression is driven only by downstream (dat-1) promoter.
VPR156 vprIs156. C. elegans vprIs156 [hlh-17p::DsRed(monomeric)]. Unc, backward coiler.
VPR157 vprIs157. C. elegans vprIs157 [hlh-17p::GFP]. Unc, backward ventral coiler.
VPR160 vprEx160. C. elegans vprEx160 [hlh-17p::empty vector + unc-54p::mCherry]. Maintain by picking mCherry+. Unc, backward coiler.
VPR163 vprEx163. C. elegans vprEx163 [unc-54p::mCherry]. Maintain by picking mCherry+.
VPR168 wyEx915. C. elegans wyEx915 [hlh-17p::mCherry + unc-122p::GFP]. Low penetrance backwards coiler. This strain was produced by crossing TV2394 with N2 to remove wyIs45.
VPR839 unc-119(ed4) III; irIs67. C. elegans irIs67 [hlh-17p::GFP + unc-119(+)].
