CP99 Cbr-unc-119(nm67) III. Derived from AF16. Outcrossed >6x to AF16. Unc, slightly Dpy, no dauer formation (similar to C. elegans unc-119). nm67 is a deletion (827 bp) in Cbr-119 begining in exon 1 and ending 3' of exon 4. Reference: Liu Q, et al. Development. 2012 Apr;139(8):1509-21.
CP101 Cbr-puf-2(nm66)/Cbr-dpy-?(nm4) II. Larval-lethal puf-2 deletion allele. Heterozygotes are WT (slightly Dpy) and segregate 25% Dpy, 50% wild-type heterozygotes, and 25% larval lethal (arrest L1-L2). Maintain by picking WT and checking for correct segregation of progeny. Map distance between nm4 and nm66 has not been preciely determined, but is tight enough that >90% of non-Dpy non-Lva progeny from double-heterozygotes retain the parental genotype. Reference: Liu Q & Haag ES. J Exp Zool. 2013 Part B.
CP38 Cbr-tra-1(nm2)/Cbr-let(nm28) III. When singled, hermaphrodites should throw 2/3 hermaphrodites and 1/2 nm2 XX males. The lethal appears to balance the nm2 allele pretty well, but precise recombination mapping has not been performed. The XX males maintain their phenotypic resemblance to the unbalanced strain and are probably not fertile due to obvious gonadal deficiencies. This strain has been successfully grown at 15C and 20C. Both strains appear to have complete penetrance of the mutant phenotypes.
