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.
ZM1385 C. elegans hpIs66. Show Description
hpIs66 [nab-1::GFP]. 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. Animals are slightly short with malformed tail in hermaphrodites. GFP localized in puncta at synapses in nerve cords and nerve ring. GFP localization also along the excretory canals, and some vulva expression. Reference: Hung W, et al. Development. 2007 Jan;134(2):237-49.

Increased angle of head bending. Maintain under normal conditions. Reference: Chen B, et al. J Neurosci. 2010 Dec 8;30(49):16651-61.
