Species C. briggsae
GenotypeCbr-she-1(v35) IV; mfIs42.
DescriptionmfIs42 [Cel-sid-2(+) + Cel-myo-2::dsRed]. Maintain at 15C. Feminization is partially-penetrant at 15C; most hermaphrodites are somewhat self-fertile and can lay small broods. Can be maintained by crossing with male siblings. Feminized C. briggsae strain made susceptible to RNAi knock-down by feeding dsRNA due to the transgenic expression of C. elegans SID-2. Generated by crossing parental strains JU1018 with RE665. Reference: Booth LN, eLife 2019 Jul 8;8:e46418. PMID: 31282863.
