Strain Information

Name SS149   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemes-1(bn7) X.
DescriptionTemperature-sensitive. Maintain at 15C. The embryos from homozygous mutant mothers display defects in the unequal cell divisions of P2 and P3, defects in partitioning of germ granules during these divisions, and defects in formation of the germ-line precursor cell P4. The embryos that lack P4 develop into sterile adults. These defects are incompletely expressed and sensitive to temperature. Homozygous mothers produce about 10% sterile progeny at 16C and 70% sterile progeny at 25C. The temperature-sensitive period is early in embryogenesis, from fertilization to about the 28-cell stage.
