DescriptionHandling: Easy to manipulate. Heterozygous males, and homozygous males of original isolate, mate well. Homozygous Bli-4 phenotype completely suppressed in dpy-5 and dpy-18 variants. Rare exceptional progeny carry one half-translocation as a complex free duplication. Mutations have been observed to become unbalanced at low frequency, but the mechanism is not fully understood. The dpy-18(h662) variant is very mildly Dpy as a homozygote. hT2[bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] carries an integrated pharyngeal GFP element; the lethal mutation in this variant has been observed to recombine away, leaving hT2[bli-4(e937) qIs48] that apparently retains balancer activity. Growth characteristics: Original isolate homozygous viable with Bli-4 phenotype. Recommended use: General balancing, strain maintenance. Summary: Reciprocal translocation, well characterized, stable. Effective balancer for left portion of LG I from left end through unc-101, and right portion of LG III from right end through dpy-17. hT2(I) is LG III (right) translocated to LG I (right), disjoins from normal LG I. hT2(III) is LG I (left) translocated to LG III (left), disjoins from normal LG III.

Strain Genotype Species Description
EU1516 aph-1(or28)/hT2 I; +/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(h661)] III. C. elegans or28 is a non-conditional maternal-effect embryonic lethal mutant ; the anterior pharynx is absent. and embryonic lethality is 100% penetrant. Pick single WT heterozygous hermaphrodites to maintain strain; these hets produce 11/16 dead embryos due to aneuploidy from translocation segregation and lethal homozygous hT2. The homozygous or28 hermaphrodites produce all dead embryos with defective pharyngeal development. or28 is a G to D mis-sense mutation at amino acid position 123. Strain produces lots of males due to him-8(ec56).

JK4087 rnp-8(q784) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C. elegans Heterozygotes are WT and GFP+. qIs48 is an insertion of ccEx9747 with markers: myo-2::GFP expressed brightly in the pharynx throughout development, pes-10::GFP expressed in embryos, and a gut promoter driving GFP in the intestine, and is homozygous lethal. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it directly from the CGC. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects. Note: qIs48 has been observed to recombine off hT2, typically leaving behind a functional homozygous viable hT2 with Bli-4 phenotype. rnp-8 homozyotes are GFP- and look like WT. Slow L4 to Adult transition.
JK4299 gld-2(q497) gld-1(q361) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C. elegans Pick GFP+ heterozygotes to maintain. Segregates fertile GFP+ heterozygotes, non-GFP homozygous mutants (Gld; form germline tumors), very rare GFP+ homozygous hT2, and dead eggs. gld-1(q361) is a missense allele but phenotypically null, which allows the detection of gld-1 mRNA and protein by single molecule FISH or antibody staining.

This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects. Note: qIs48 has been observed to recombine off hT2, typically leaving behind a functional homozygous viable hT2 with Bli-4 phenotype. PCR using 3 primers: primer A: TCA GCC GAC AAT CTC CGA; primer B: GTA CTG ATT GTA TCC ACC GGC; primer C: GCT CAT AGA AAA GCG ATG G. WT band = 0.5 kb; heterozygote bands = 0.8 and 0.5 kb (double bands), tm2435 bands = 0.8 kb.
JK4563 gld-1(q126sd) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). C. elegans Segregates WT GFP+ heterozygotes, non-GFP sterile gld-1 homozygotes, very rare GFP+ homozygous hT2, and dead eggs. Maintain by picking wild-type GFP+. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it directly from the CGC. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects.
