Strain Information

Name KR1557   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypehDf10 dpy-5(e61) unc-29(e403)/hT2 [dpy-18(h662)] I; +/hT2 [bli-4(e937)] III.
DescriptionWild-type to mildly long phenotype, sometimes a bit Unc. Segregates wild-type, Dpy-18 (hT2[dpy-18 bli-4] homozygotes), hDf10 dpy-5 unc-29 homozygotes (probably dead eggs) and large numbers of aneuploids (dead eggs). dpy-18(h662) completely suppresses bli-4(e937), is only very mildly Dpy, and has a distinctive dark body and large clear vulval region as a young adult, before becoming gravid. Do not passage: hT2 homozygotes seem somewhat healthier than the het, and will overgrow the plate. Pick longish wild-types and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. This strain was generated by the Genetic Toolkit project, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use: The Genetic Toolkit is funded by the NIH National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) (USA) to Ann M. Rose, David L. Baillie, and Donald L. Riddle. Report all experimental results to Ann Rose.
