Strain Information

Name SSM2   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypemre-11(iow1)/nT1[qIs51] (IV;V).
DescriptionHeterozygotes are wild-type with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate wild-type GFP, arrested nT1[qIs51] aneuploids, and non-GFP iow1 homozygotes (viable; see note below). Homozygous nT1[qIs51] inviable. Pick wild-type GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. iow1 is a separation-of-function allele of mre-11. Homozygotes develop into adults wild-type in appearance, but laying dead eggs due to defects in meiotic DSB repair: mre-11(iow1) worms form meiotic DSBs but are impaired in their resection. Pick GFP+ to maintain (mre-11(iow1)/nT1[qIs51]) and GFP- to obtain homozygous mre-11(iow1) worms for analysis. Reference: Yin Y & Smolikove S.
