Strain Information

Name AV38   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypemnDp66 (X;I); meDf2 X.
DescriptionProduces 31% XO male self progeny; nondisjunction is correlated with a high frequency of achiasmate X chromosomes in oocyte nuclei, and a reduced frequency of X chromosome crossovers. meDf2 disrupts the function of the cis-acting X chromosome meiotic pairing center. meDf2/+ heterozygotes produce 4-6% XO progeny, so the presence of meDf2 can be followed in heterozygotes by this weak Him phenotype.
