Name VC1732   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypelet-526(gk816) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III).
DescriptionC01G8.9. Apparent homozygous lethal deletion chromosome balanced by bli-4- and GFP-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT with pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT GFP, arrested hT2 aneuploids, and non-GFP gk816 homozygotes (arrest stage/phenotype undetermined). Homozygous hT2[bli-4 let-? qIs48] inviable. Pick WT GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. (Note: in this strain hT2[qIs48] occasionally recombines such that the GFP and its associated lethality are lost and the non-GFP hT2 left behind still carries the bli-4 mutation of the original hT2. Such a recombination event results in a viable non-GFP animal that is no longer gk816/hT2[qIs48] but is gk816/hT2.) External left primer: GCCATCACTTTCATCGGATT. External right primer: AATAGACGGCACGTGGAAAC. Internal left primer: ATTCGTTGTTGATAAGCCGC. Internal right primer: ATGACCGATGATGATGACGA. Internal WT amplicon: 1843 bp. Deletion size: 1268 bp. Deletion left flank: AGACATAGACGTCATGCGAAAAATAATATA. Deletion right flank: TCTATATATTCTCCGCGTGGTGGGCTATTT. Insertion Sequence: TATAT. 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.
