Strain Information

Name RG5020   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypehrpr-1(gk5481[loxP + myo-2p::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + rps-27p::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP])/hT2 [umnIs73] I; +/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(h661)] III.
DescriptionumnIs73 [myo-2p::mKate2 + NeoR, III: 9421936 (intergenic)] I. Pick viable fertile GFP+ and mKate2+ animals to maintain. Apparent homozygous lethal or sterile deletion balanced over mKate2 tagged hT2. Heterozygotes are wild-type GFP+ mKate2+, and segregate wild-type GFP+ mKate2+, GFP+ non-mKate2 (gk5481 homozygotes), lethal non-GFP mKate2+ hT2 homozygotes (arrest stage unknown) and dead eggs (aneuploids). Derived from parental strains VC4403 and CGC92. [NOTE: RG5020 and the parental strain VC4403 exhibit weak red fluorescence. The cause of this fluorescence is unknown, but gk5481 is a clean deletion/insertion confirmed by PCR.] gk5481 is a 2871 bp deletion with Calarco/Colaiacovo selection cassette conferring myo-2 GFP and G418 resistance inserted at break. Left flanking sequence: TTGCTTTCAGGCAATCGTCACGCTCGTTGA; Right flanking sequence: GGCGGGAGATCTGCAAAAATCGATAATCTA. Please reference Au et al., G3 9(1): 135-144 2019 in any work resulting from use of this mutation.
