Strain Information

Name WH170   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypeeff-1(oj55) II.
DescriptionLoss of cell fusion in hypodermis (epithelial fusion failures). Viable and fertile as homozygotes. Tail-spike defect in all young larvae, less visible in older larvae and adults. oj55 appears to cause incomplete loss of function, as many cells fuse in postembryonic development. Homozygous males have tail and mating defects. ES-3. Cloned: ORF C26D10.5 encodes a type-I membrane glycoprotein with a single TM domain.
