Strain Information

Name BS3156   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypeunc-13(e51) gld-1(q485)/hT2 [dpy-18(h662)] I; +/hT2 [bli-4(e937)] III.
DescriptionHeterozygotes are wild-type and segregate WT heterozygotes, Unc (unc-13 gld-1 homozygotes), and Dpy (hT2 homozygotes; the bli-4 mutation is suppressed by dpy-18). XX Uncs have tumorous germline and are sterile; XO Uncs are cross fertile (though they don't mate due to the Unc mutation). q485 is the canonical allele of gld-1. It behaves like deletions of the locus in complementation tests and thus is genetically null. Molecularly, it is a deletion of 82 bases and fails to produce gld-1 RNA and protein.
