Strain Information

Name JH3479   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemeg-3(ax3056[del(1-544)::OLLAS]) meg-4(ax3052) X.
DescriptionEmbryonic P granules not localized, 30% maternal effect sterility on average, insensitivity to RNAi. meg-3(ax3056) is an-frame deletion in the endogenous meg-3 locus removing the first 544 amino acids (1-544); MEG-3 forms a cytoplasmic gradient but does not form granules in the early embryos or recruit other P granule components such as PGL-1/3.
