Strain Information

Name AML1   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypezfIs18; zfIs42.
DescriptionzfIs18 [mec-4p::ChR2::YFP]. zfIs42 [rig-3p::GCaMP3::SL2::mCherry]. Pick mCherry+ animals to maintain strong expression from zfIs42. Worm expresses light-sensitive Channelrhodopsin (ChR2) and yellow fluorescent protein (YFP) in mechanosensory neurons, ALMR/L, AVM, PLML/R, and PVM. When fed all-trans retinal, blue light stimulation (473 nm at 2 mW * mm^-2) of head induces reversals. GCaMP3 and and mCherry expression in command interneurons AVA, and nearby pharyngeal neurons I1, I4, M4, NSM. Worms were made by crossing the integrated strains QW309 and QW625.
