Rearrangement Information

NamehT3 View on WormBase
DescriptionHandling: Easy to manipulate. Rare exceptional progeny carry one half-translocation as a free duplication. Recombination frequency in unbalanced intervals increased on both LG I and LG X. Recommended use: General balancing, strain maintenance Growth characteristics: Original isolate marked with dpy-5 and unc-29. Homozygous inviable, probably breaks in let-363 (I). Heterozygotes exhibit reduced viability, low level of X chromosome nondisjunction (1.2%). Summary: Translocation (rigorous proof of reciprocity lacking), moderately well characterized, very stable. Very effective balancer for left portion of LG I from left end to around let-363, and the right portion of LG X from the right end to between dpy-7 and unc-3. hT3(I), which disjoins from normal LG I, is probably LG X (right) translocated to LG I (right). hT3(X),which disjoins from normal LG X, is probably LG I (left) translocated to LG X (left).

Strain Genotype Species Description
KR1876 +/hT3[dpy-5(e61)] I; dpy-7(e88) unc-3(e151)/hT3 X. C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, DpyUncs and Dpys. Balancer is quite unstable and prone to breaking down. Grows better at 15C.
