Rearrangement Information

NamemDp4 View on WormBase
Description[Mark Edgley ] Induced with 1500R gamma. mDp4 carries unc-17(e245), and it recombines with normal LG IV homologues. The unc-17 mutation has been observed to cross onto normal LG IV under heat shock (30C/6 hours). Males carrying mDp4 can mate and transfer the duplication, but at low frequency, and male stocks are difficult to maintain.

Strains carrying this rearrangement

Strain Genotype Species Description
DR1786 dpy-13(e184) unc-24(e138) IV; mDp4[unc-17(e245)] (IV;?). C. elegans WT phenotype. Segregates WT and DpyUncs. mDp4 carries dpy-13(+) and unc-24(+). Duplication may recombine with normal homologues. Presence of unc-17(e245) on mDp4 confirmed: got Unc-17 segregants after heat shock of this stock to generate males. Pick WT and check for segregation of progeny to maintain.
