Strain Genotype Description
CB5161 Caenorhabditis brenneri. Male-female strain. Reference WBG 9(3) 121. Isolated from sugar cane in Trinidad by D.J. Hunt (Commonwealth Institute of Parasitology). [7/7/93: Scott Baird and David Fitch question whether this strain is really C. remanei.] [7/95: Not cross-fertile with the authentic C. remanei isolated by Walter Sudhaus.] Previously called C. remanei by the CGC. Walter Sudhaus has tentatively described this strain as Caenorhabditis sp.; this description is not offical and is contigent upon its being published. See WBPaper00002633 and WBPaper00003993. sp. 4 in Kiontke and Sudhaus Wormbook Ecology chapter.
LKC28 Caenorhabditis brenneri. Male-female strain. Isolated in 2003 by Lynn Carta from material which was intercepted by Hernan Ruiz, a Plant Pathologist at Miami Inspection Station of USDA-APHIS-PPQ. The nematodes came from Liriope roots grown in the nursery Liriope de Costa Rica, La Gloria de Aguas Zarcas, Vereda Turrucares, Provincia de Alajuela, Costa Rica, Central America. The strain is conspecific with CB5161 based on mating tests. sp. 4 in Kiontke and Sudhaus Wormbook Ecology chapter.
PB2801 Caenorhabditis brenneri. Male-female strain. This is a 20X inbred (one gravid female per generation) derivative of LKC28, which is conspecific with CB5161. This is the strain that will be used for genome sequencing by Erich Schwarz/John Spieth. sp. 4 in Kiontke and Sudhaus Wormbook Ecology chapter.
SB129 Caenorhabditis brenneri. Male-female strain. Isolated in Bohorok, Sumatra from humus-like material probably from banana plants by P. Blum in June 1975. Conspecific with CB5161 by mating tests, and with CB5161, LKC28 and SB280 by RNA Polymerase II largest subunit sequence. sp. 4 in Kiontke and Sudhaus Wormbook Ecology chapter.
SB280 Caenorhabditis brenneri. Male-female strain. Isolated by W. Sudhaus on Guadeloupe from rotting banana leaves on June 16, 1996. Conspecific with CB5161 by mating tests, and with CB5161, LKC28 and SB129 by RNA Polymerase II largest subunit sequence. sp. 4 in Kiontke and Sudhaus Wormbook Ecology chapter.
