Strain Information

Name YE57   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
Genotypesmc-5(ok2421)/mIn1 [mIs14 dpy-10(e128)] II.
DescriptionHomozygous viable mutation balanced by GFP- and dpy-10-marked inversion. Heterozygotes are WT with relatively dim pharyngeal GFP signal, and segregate WT dim GFP, Dpy bright GFP (mIn1 homozygotes), and non-GFP ok2421 homozygotes. Pick WT dim GFP and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain. ok2421 homozygotes are morphologically wild-type but show ~30% reduction in fertilized eggs and a trans-generational increase in sterility. Maintain under normal conditions. Reference: Bickel JS, et al. PLoS Genet. 2010 Jul 22;6(7):e1001028.
