Strain Information

Name VC10165   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypeWhole-genome sequenced strain.
DescriptionMillion Mutation Project strain. This strain was isolated after UV/TMP mutagenesis of VC2010, propagated clonally through F10 to drive mutations to homozygosity, and subjected to whole-genome sequencing. It is homozygous for a large number of mutations determined from sequence data. It may also carry large copy number variations that are not homozygous. Alleles numbered between gk100000 and gk962522 are homozygous; those numbered from gk962523 up should be assumed to be non-homozygous. A graphical representation of these large copy number differences can be seen in the Plot section for each strain on the MMP web site ( It also carries a homozygous deletion in F42A10.1 (gk1194), identified by CGH (Comparative Genome Hybridization), which can be detected by PCR with the following primers. External left primer: TGGCTTTGCAATCTGTTGAG. External right primer: ATGCTTGCTCGTTGTCTGTG. Internal left primer: ACTTGATTCTTGACGAGCCT. Internal right primer: CAACTGATAAGAGTGGTTCGCA. Internal WT amplicon: 906 bp. Maximum deletion size: 137 bp. Minimum deletion size: 101 bp. The deletion was confirmed by PCR, but was not sequenced. Left flanking probe: TTTTGTTTCGCATTCGGTTGTTTCCCATATTTCACCCAGTTTCCACGTTT. Left deleted probe: TATTAAATTGTTCACTTCAAAATTTAAGTATGAGTGAGAGCTCTAGCCTG. Right deleted probe: AAATAATGCAAAGGTCTTCCTTGCTCGGGTCATCATGAAGAAGATACTCG. Right flanking probe: GGGTCATCATGAAGAAGATACTCGAGTTGGTAAGGCTTATCGTTCTGAAA. Flanking sequences represent the nearest array oligo sequences present in the deletion chromsome on the basis of fluorescence ratio. These should not be considered hard breakpoints in the absence of actual sequence data. Attribution: This strain was provided by the C. elegans Reverse Genetics Core Facility at the University of British Columbia, which is part of the international C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use.
