Strain Information

Name WE5172   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypedpy-5(e907) I; ajIs1 X.
DescriptionajIs1 [rCesC05A9.1::GFP + dpy-5(+)] X. GFP expression driven by 300bp sequence upstream of pgp-5 gene. Weak intestinal fluorescence is visible under normal conditions. Derived by insertion of sEx864 in parental strain BC10030. Pathogens, heavy metals, and toxins (e.g. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, cadmium, G418) further induce GFP expression. dpy-5(e907) was likely removed by outcrossing, but might still be in the background.
