Strain Information

Name HW1329   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypelin-41(xe11) I.
DescriptionEgg-laying (Egl) defects and subsequent internal hatching of progeny (Bagging) in > 95% of animals. xe11 is a C-to-U point mutation in each of the endogenous let-7 complementary sites, LCS1 and LCS2 [I:C9,335,211T & I:C9,335,260T]. xe11 is a weak gain-of-function allele: mutation of two functionally relevant let-7 binding sites impairs repression by let-7 causing over-expression of LIN-41 in L4 stage animals. Reference: Ecsedi M, et al. Dev Cell. 2015 Feb 9;32(3):335-44. Do not distribute this strain; other labs should request it directly from the CGC.
