|met-2(ok2307) set-25(n5021) III.
|Maintain at 20C or lower. The met-2 set-25 double mutant exhibits partial sterility and no significant defects in chromosome segregation. MET-2 and SET-25 are the methyltransferases responsible for histone H3K9me2 and H3K9me3. The deletion mutations can be checked by PCR with the following primers: met-2(ok2307), GGTTGATGCGGAGAAGACTG and AATGGATTCGGTGCTTCGTG; set-25(n5021), GAGCCCGTGCCACAGAGTAG and CCTAGAGCGATGTCCTTGATGG. This strain was used as a negative control in the immunodetection of H3K9me2.
