Strain Information

Name BR6563   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypebyIs161; bkIs10.
DescriptionbyIs161 [rab-3p::F3(delta)K280 + myo-2p::mCherry]. bkIs10 [aex-3p::h4R1NtauV337M + myo-2p::GFP]. Strain co-expressing the F3(delta)K280 pro-aggregation Tau fragment and full-length Tau in all neurons. Worms have severe locomotion defect and slow growth. Red and green fluorescence in the pharynx due to the co-injection markers. bkIs10 contains an integrated transgene encoding the 1N4R isoforms of human tau with the 337M FTDP-17 mutation. Expression is driven by the pan-neuronal promoter aex-3. Over-expression of this transgene results in a pronounced Unc phenotype. Derived by additional outcrossing of BR5485.
