Rearrangement Information

NamestDp2 View on WormBase
DescriptionGrowth characteristics: Homozygous inviable. Summary: Translocated duplication, moderately well characterized, not observed to recombine with normal LG X. Very effective balancer for small region in the center of LG X, from around unc-58 to around unc-6. 2pt data shows linkage to II homozygous lethal Recommended use: General balancing, strain construction, strain maintenance. Handling: Easy to manipulate. Males carrying one copy of the duplication mate well.

Strain Genotype Species Description
EM122 stDp2 (X;II)/+ II; him-5(e1490) V; unc-18(e81) dpy-6(e14) X. C. elegans Strain throws WT, DpyUncs and males (and some Lon-don't know where these come from??). Maintain by picking WT. non-Unc non-Dpy males mate at low frequency and will transmit stDp2.
RW2551 stDp2(X;II)/+ II; stDf5 X. C. elegans WT strain. Segregates dead eggs.
RW2552 stDp2(X;II)/+ II; stDf6 X. C. elegans WT strain. Segregates dead eggs.
RW6002 stDp2 (X;II)/+ II; unc-18(e81) X. C. elegans Segregates WT and Unc. Maintain by picking WT.
SP1981 unc-115(mn481) dpy-6(e14) X; stDp2 (X;II)/+. C. elegans Wt strain throws WT and DpyUncs.
TU899 stDp2(X;II)/+ II; uDf1 X. C. elegans Strain throws WT and dead eggs.
