Strain Information

Name FK171   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemek-1(ks54) sek-1(qd127) X.
DescriptionHypersensitive to copper and cadmium ions, and to starvation. [NOTE: Prior studies suggested possible cross-regulation of PMK-1 by MEK-1, but the identification of a tightly linked partial loss-of-function mutation in sek-1(qd127) in the strain carrying the mek-1(ks54) mutant allele (K. Reddy and D. Kim, unpublished data) suggests that the diminished PMK-1 activation observed in this mutant strain may actually be due to diminished SEK-1 activity.]
