Strains contributed by this laboratory

Strain Genotype Species Description
CB1072 unc-29(e1072) I. C. elegans Very sluggish as L1, moves better as adult. Weak kinker. Head region stiff. Moves better in reverse, fairly active. Levamisole resistant.
NA22 E. coli. Escherichia coli Bacteria. Jim Lewis received this E. coli strain from Henry Epstein in 1977. It is a prototroph and the worms grow well on it in liquid, even when the bacteria are highly labeled with 35-S. It hasn't been tested to see if it is temperature sensitive. It should be distributed as "Jim Lewis' NA22" until it has been confirmed that this is a certified version of NA22. Biosafety Level: BSL-1.
ZZ1 lev-11(x1) I. C. elegans Levamisole resistant. Twitcher.
ZZ1004 unc-63(x18) dpy-5(e61) I. C. elegans
ZZ1012 unc-74(x19) dpy-5(e61) I. C. elegans
ZZ1015 unc-38(x20) dpy-5(e61) I. C. elegans
ZZ12 lev-11(x12) I. C. elegans Levamisole resistant twitcher. Weakly semi-dominant. M-MATING++ 1-10%WT.
ZZ13 unc-63(x13) I. C. elegans Levamisole resistant Unc. Tends to accumulate eggs. M-MATING+++ 10-30%WT. pka lev-7.
ZZ15 lev-8(x15) X. C. elegans Pseudowild levamisole resistance. Head more resistant than body. Body resistance is temperature sensitive. WT phenotype.
ZZ16 lev-9(x16) X. C. elegans Pseudo wild type levamisole resistance. WT phenotype.
ZZ17 lev-10(x17) I. C. elegans Pseudo wild type levamisole resistant. WT phenotype. pka lev-10.
ZZ20 unc-38(x20) I. C. elegans Unc.
ZZ21 lev-1(x21) tra-3(e2333) IV. C. elegans Levamisole resistant. Unc. tra-3 mutation discovered late. See Hodgkin & Barnes 1991 for genotype details.
ZZ26 unc-63(x26) I. C. elegans Recessive. Resistant to levamisole. Weakly to moderately temperature sensitive. WT movement.
ZZ30 unc-29(x30) I. C. elegans Recessive. Levamisole resistant. WT movement. Weakly to moderately temperature sensitive.
ZZ37 unc-63(x37) I. C. elegans Use as new reference allele. Unc.
ZZ545 unc-29(x545) I. C. elegans
