Strain Information

Name JH3861   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemeg-3(ax4502[meg-3(F705A,Y708A,Y713A, N725A)::OLLAS]) meg-4(ax3052) X.
Description20% Maternal effect sterility on average, embryonic P granule defect, RNAi insensitivity. Engineered mutations in the endogenous meg-3 locus disrupt the binding and localization of PGL proteins to P granules in the early embryo while MEG-3 itself is still forms an asymmetric cytoplasmic gradient and granules.
