Strain Information

Name EM347   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypetlp-1(bx85) IV; him-5(e1490) V.
DescriptionAlthough hermaphrodites appear WT in other ways, there are some problems with T cell lineages (affecting the phasmids) and tail cell fusions. Variably Dyf. Male tail tip morphogenesis is also defective, resulting in blobby, "leptoderan" tails. Males are infertile due to an inability to properly copulate. tlp-1 encodes a nuclear protein with a single C2H2-type zinc finger domain and an N-terminal "SPLALLA" domain, similar to that of Sp1 transcription factors of vertebrates. The bx85 mutation involves a truncation of TLP-1 due to a frameshift caused by a 5-bp deletion.
