Strain Information

Name PS5970   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypehim-5(e1490) syIs197 V.
DescriptionsyIs197 [hs::LIN-3c(cDNA) + myo-2p::DsRed + pha-1(+)]. Him. Maintain at 15C. To induce LIN-3/EGF expression, heat shock at 33C for 30min (water bath) and let animals recover at least 1hr from the behavioral effects of the heat shock. Heat shock-induced LIN-3 should inhibit feeding, locomotion and sensory responses for several hours. For details on EGF-induced quiescence, see Nature Neuroscience 10, 1300 - 1307 (2007). PS5970 is identical to PS5628 as described in Development 137, 2065-2074 (2010) except that it has been outcrossed to remove accumulating suppressors.
