Strain Information

Name TY5684   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypesdc-2(y93) X.
DescriptionTemperature-sensitive. Maintain at 15C. Complements other sdc-2 alleles at 15C. At 20C animals are not Dpy or Tra, but there is a low penetrance of lethality, some Egl animals, and some animals will Bag after a couple days of egg-laying. y93 fails to complement other sdc-2 alleles at 25C; homozygotes are Egl,Tra and weakly Dpy at higher temperatures. Shifting embryos (prepared from non-Dpy non-Egl non-Tra gravid adults at 20C) from 20C to 25C is sufficient to alter their phenotype. Reference: Nusbaum C & Meyer BJ. Genetics. 1989 Jul;122(3):579-93.
