ZG31 C. elegans hif-1(ia4) V. Show Description
Healthy and fertile in standard lab conditions, but unable to adapt to 1% oxygen. When hif-1(+) animals are incubated in1% oxygen, >94% will complete embryogenesis and larval development. In contrast, hif-1(ia4) mutants exhibit 66% embryonic lethality and 9% larval lethality in 1% oxygen. The requirement of hif-1 is alleviated if the oxygen level is increased to 2%. The ia4 mutation is a 1231 bp deletion of the second, third, and fourth exons, which encode much of the helix-loop-helix and PAS domains. Analysis of ESTs suggests that there are at least 4 alternatively spliced hif-1 transcripts. The ia4 deletion introduces a frameshift and a premature stop in the three longest forms.

ZM10113 C. elegans twk-40(bln282[twk-40::TagRFP::ZF]) III; hpIs727. Show Description
hpIs727 [rig-3p::zif-1::sl2::RFP + ttx-3p::GFP]. twk-40(bln282) is a CRISPR generated tagged allele of endogenous twk-40 locus inserting TagRFP and a ZIF-1 directed degron to the endogenous TWK-40, allowing visualization of endogenous protein expression and localization as well as targeted degradation. The presence of hpIs727 in the background leads to specific degradation of TWK-40 from AVA, causing loopy forward and reversal movement compared to twk-40(bln282) alone.
ZM10206 C. elegans hpIs758. Show Description
hpIs758 [rig-3p::LoxP::eBFP::LoxP::Chrimson::wCherry + twk-40(s)p::Cre + myo-2p::wCherry]. Pick animals with red fluorescence to maintain. Weak myo-2 and AVA Cherry expression. hpIs758 is a spontaneous insertion of hpEx4080. Reference: Lu Y, et al. 2022. Current Biology (In Press).

ZM10538 C. elegans hpIs774; hpEx4081. Show Description
hpIs774 [twk-40p(short)::GCaMP6s::mNeptune]. hpEx4081 [rig-3p::LoxP::eBFP::Stop::LoxP::gtACR2::wCherry + twk-40p(short)::Cre + myo-2p::RFP]. Pick RFP+ (pharynx) to maintain. Transgenic animals are GFP and RFP positive in multiple neurons in the head, but strong RFP signals in AVA neurite. Superficially wild type. Activation of gtACR2 decreases AVA and AVB’s calcium signals. hpEx4081 can be maintained by picking animals with weak pharyngeal RFP signals (seems to be a common artifact of the Cre-LoxP system).
ZM10755 C. elegans hpIs814. Show Description

Red fluorescence in AVA. twk-40(hp834) is a loss-of-function allele. twk-40(hp834) itself is highly loopy and a weak backward coiler. The presence of hpIs814 in the background reduces body bending and speed compared to twk-40(hp834) alone.

Transgenic animals exhibit punctate green fluorescent signals along AVA neurites in the ventral cord, with stronger expression than in a wild-type background. mCherry and HisCl1 expression in AVA soma and neurites. In the presence of histamine, the SNB-1::pHluorin intensity will decrease in neurites.

Reporter contains nab-1 genomic clone with 9 kb promoter sequence upstream of ATG, the entire nab-1 gene with GFP inserted immediately before the stop codon, and the 1 kb downstream sequence.

ZM8607 C. elegans hpIs481. Show Description
hpIs481 [ceh-12p::tomm20::miniSOG::SL2::BFP + unc-129(DB)p::tomm20::miniSOG::SL2::BFP + lin-15(+)]. Maintain in the covered box to avoid unnecessary exposure to ambient light. Stimulation with blue light (460 nm LED light for 30 min at 4 Hz with 2 mW/mm2), induces mitochondrial-miniSOG ablation of B-class motor neurons. During neuron ablation, it is recommended to keep the lid of the plate open and use a heat disipator to keep the air cool. unc-129(DB)p is a fragment of the unc-129 promoter driving expression in only DB motor neurons (described in Colavita et al., Science 1998 31;281(5377):706-9). The ceh-12 promoter drives expression in VB motor neurons. Generated in N2 background. Reference: Gao S, et al. eLife 2018 Jan 23;7:e29915. doi: 10.7554/eLife.29915.

zxIs127 [sng-1p::SNG-1::CRY2olig(535) + myo-2p::mCherry]. Strain should be kept in the dark; it is very light-sensitive. Pan-neuronal expression of a truncated variant of Arabidopsis thaliana Cryptochrome-2 fused to synaptogyrin. If illuminated with blue light, synaptic vesicles cluster, resulting in inhibition of synaptic transmission. Synaptic transmission is restored within 15 minutes in the absence of light (ca. 6.5min time constant), resulting in normal wild type behavior afterwards. Reference: Vettkotter D, et al. Nat Commun 13, 7827 (2022). PMID: 36535932
