Strain Information

Name IW465   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypetax-2(iw80) I.
DescriptionImprovement in thermotolerance at 37C, though weaker than in null mutants. Longer lifespan than to tax-2(gk117937) null mutant. Higher frequency of dauer formation and survival at 28C than tax-2(gk117937) null mutant. Reference: Hwang HY, et al. Front Genet. 2020 Oct 6;11:566948. doi: 10.3389/fgene.2020.566948. PMID: 33133151
