Strain Information

Name JH3475   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemeg-3(ax3055) meg-4(ax3052) X.
DescriptionEmbryonic P granules not segregated, 30% maternal effect sterility on average, RNAi insensitivity. meg-3(ax3055) and meg-4(ax3052) are precise deletions of the entire coding sequence made by CRISPR/Cas9, designed to be cut again to make insertions at the endogenous locus.
