Strain Information

Name MAS94   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemei-1(ct46) unc-13(e1091) I; unc-119(ed3) III; abcIs3.
DescriptionabcIs3 [pie-1p::ebp-2::GFP + unc-119(+)]. Embryonic-lethal at 25ºC due to dominant gain-of-function mutation mei-1(ct46), and Uncoordinated due to unc-13 mutation. Maternal expression of EBP-2::GFP microtubule end-binding protein. EBP-2 encodes an EB1-like protein (end-binding) that, in early embryos, locates to the growing tips of microtubules. A strong fluorescent signal localizes to the centrosomes of early embryos due to a high concentration of polymerizing microtubules. mei-1(ct46)-based ectopic microtubule severing causes mitotic spindle defects in the early embryo.
