Strain Information

Name VC4098   View On Wormbase Documentation for VC4098 gk5045 hrpk-1
Species C. elegans
Genotypehrpk-1(gk5045[loxP + myo-2p::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + rps-27p::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP])/tmC18 [dpy-5(tmIs1236)] I.
DescriptionHomozygous sterile deletion balanced by tmC18. Heterozygotes are wild-type with pharyngeal GFP+RFP+, and segregate GFP+RFP+ heterozygotes, GFP+ gk5045 homozygotes (most commonly sterile, but occasional animals will lay eggs that hatch, and a population of homozygotes can be maintained), and tmC18 homozygotes (Dpy-5 with myo-2 mCherry). Pick fertile wild-type GFP+RFP+ to maintain. Deletion of 1976 bp with Calarco/Colaiacovo selection cassette conferring myo-2 GFP and G418 resistance inserted at break. Left flanking sequence: TCAAAATGATGATCAAAGTGGGAGCCGCTA ; Right flanking sequence: GGTGGATCTGTCTAGGTTCTGGTGTTCGTA. Please reference Au et al., G3 9(1): 135-144 2019 in any work resulting from use of this mutation.
