Species C. elegans
GenotypejuSi164 unc-119(ed3) III; wtfIs458.
DescriptionjuSi164 [mex-5p::HIS-72::miniSOG + Cbr-unc-119(+)] III. wtfIs458 [mec-4::Chrimson4.2::SL2::mCherry::unc-54 3' UTR + unc-122::GFP]. Maintain in the covered box to avoid unnecessary exposure to ambient light. Upon blue light treatment (460 nm LED light for 30 min at 4 Hz with 2 mW/mm2), Histone-miniSOG in the germline can induce heritable mutations. Transgenic animals express light-gated ion channel Chrimson and a fluorescent protein mCherry in mechanosensory neurons alongside GFP in coelomocytes.
