Strain Information

Name XE1220   View On Wormbase
Species C elegans
DescriptionwpEx76 [myo-3p::tom20::tdKillerRed + unc-122p::GFP]. Pick GFP+ to maintain. KillerRed is a red fluorescent protein and photosensitizer that efficiently generates reactive oxygen species (ROS) when activated by light. wpEx76 carries a tandem dimer version of KillerRed targeted to the mitochondria by the addition of a tom-20 targeting sequence (mito-tdKillerRed).
