VC857 C. elegans +/szT1 [lon-2(e678)] I; C24A8.6(gk413)/szT1 X. Show Description
C24A8.6. Homozygous viable deletion chromosome balanced by lon-2-marked translocation. Heterozygotes are WT, and segregate WT, arrested szT1 aneuploids, Lon-2 males, and gk413 homozygotes (sick, often sterile, with body morphology defects, lots of arrested embryos). Also segregates viable gk413 hemizygotes (WT males). Phenotype of homozygote may be suspicious, as deletion appears to affect only an intron. Pick WT and check for correct segregation of progeny to maintain.
