Strain Information

Name JK6693   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypeqSi425 [*rajSi50] II.
DescriptionqSi425 [*rajSi50 (gld-1p::GFP::H2B::gld-1 3'UTR [FBEa TGT to ACA] [FBEb TGT to ACA] + Cbr-unc-119(+))] II. Maintain at 24C on OP50. Select well-fed adult animals with bright germline GFP in nuclei to propagate strain. qSi425 contains engineered TGT to ACA substitution in FBEa in rajSi50 gld-1 3’UTR reporter and substitution of downstream G to C to disrupt PAM site, and TGT to ACA substitution in FBEb in rajSi50 gld-1 3’UTR reporter. GFP is visible in germline nuclei. Derived by targeted modification of FBEb in parental strain JK6690. Kimble lab crossed original NIK50 strain with TX189 [oma-1::GFP] and back out again to reduce GFP silencing. Primers to confirm FBEa mutation: slc314 GTCACCAAGTACACTTCCAGCAAG / prHJS401 TGGCAACATGATGTATCGCTGT (~100 bp band in FBEa mutant, no product in wild-type). Primers to confirm FBEb mutation: slc314 GTCACCAAGTACACTTCCAGCAAG / slc302 GGGTTAGCGTTAAGATAACTGT (~500 bp band in FBEb mutant, no product in wild-type). Reference: Carrick BH, et al. Dev Cell. 2024.
