Name EU1514   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypeaph-1(or28)/hT2 I; +/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(h661)] III; him-8(ec56) IV; lin-2(e1309) X.
Descriptionor28 is a non-conditional maternal-effect embryonic lethal mutant ; the anterior pharynx is absent. and embryonic lethality is 100% penetrant. Pick single WT heterozygous hermaphrodites to maintain strain; these hets fill up with a mix of dead embryos and larvae [11/16 dead embryos due to aneuploidy from translocation segregation and lethal homozygous hT2; vulvaless due to homozygous lin-2(e1309) mutation; about 10% of lin-2(e1309) worms are leaky and lay eggs/can be mated into]. The homozygous or28 hermaphrodites fill up with dead embryos. The lin-2 background helps to score embryonic lethality for both heterozygotes and or28 homozygotes. Strain produces a lot of males due to him-8(ec56). or28 is a G to D mis-sense mutation at amino acid position 123.
