Strain Information

Name MT4700   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypelet-60(n1531) unc-22(e66)/let-60(n1700) dpy-20(e1282) IV; him-5(e1490) V.
DescriptionHeterozygotes are mostly non-Muv (about 20% will be Muv because n1700 is semi-dominant) and non-Unc. Hets segregate Twitchers which die at various larval stages or as Vul adults, because of the maternal effect rescue of n1531 by n1700. The Twitchers will not give viable progeny. Hets also segregate DpyMuvs. The strain segregates males which will mate, though not very well.
