ABR212 C. elegans acd-1(sta6) delm-2(ok1822) I. Show Description
acd-1 and delm-2 are tandem paralogs. This double mutant was created by CRISPR-engineered deletion of acd-1 in a delm-2(ok1822) background (parental strain RB1523). acd-1(sta6) is predicted to be a null allele (~200bp indel causing frameshift in exon 4).
ABR225 C. elegans acd-1(sta6) delm-2(ok1822) I; delm-1(ok1266) IV. Show Description
acd-1 and delm-2 are tandem paralogs. This double mutant was created by CRISPR-engineered deletion of acd-1 in a delm-2(ok1822) background (parental strain RB1523). acd-1(sta6) is predicted to be a null allele (~200bp indel causing frameshift in exon 4). This triple mutant strain was made by crossing the acd-1(sta6) delm-2(ok1822) double mutant with delm-1(ok1226) parental strain RB1177.

AF72 Mesorhabditis spiculigera Show Description
Mesorhabditis spiculigera. Isolated in Pennsylvania. NOTE: (06/10/2016) AF72 was originally described as Mesorhabditis miotki, but K. Kiontke has determined through morphological inspection that this is actually a strain of Mesorhabditis spiculigera.
AF8130 Pristionchus sp. Show Description
Neodiplogasteridae: Pristionchus Iheritieri, Maupas, 1919. Isolated in Ontario, Canada. [9/98: Ralf Sommer has found this strain to be hermaphroditic. He had successful matings between AF8130 and PS312 Pristionchus pacificus, indicating that AF8130 is probably P. pacificus.]
AFS205 C. elegans zen-4(cle5) IV. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle5), GAC to AAC (D520N), and one silent mutation, GCA to GCT at codon 519, that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. A previous deposited version of this strain, zen-4(ok153), possessed two mis-sense mutations: GAC to AAC (D520N) and GAT to AAT (D735N). Reference: Farboud B, et al. Genetics Early online November 30, 2018; https://doi.org/10.1534/genetics.118.301775.
AFS222 C. elegans zen-4(cle10) IV. Show Description
Temperature-sensitive embryonic-lethal mutant. Maintain at 15C. Shift L4s to 25C overnight to observe mutant phenotype of embryos produced by adults. Mutants lack a central spindle during early embryonic mitosis and exhibits a late cytokinesis defect (cleavage furrows regress after ingressing in nearly to the center of dividing embryonic cells). This strain can be used for CRISPR-Cas9 co-conversion. There is a causal mis-sense mutation present in zen-4(cle10), GAC to AAC (D520N), and two silent mutations. One silent mutation is a CGA to CGG mutation at codon 523 that creates a recognition site for a Cas9 guide RNA, in order to use zen-4(cle10ts) as a CRISPR/Cas9 co-conversion marker. The other silent mutation is a GCA to GCT mutation at codon 519 that introduces an AluI site for RFLP analysis. Reference: Farboud B, et al.

AGK233 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx58. Show Description
armEx58 [WRM0611aH08-Del8mer + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses a derivative WRM0611aH08 fosmid. The WRM0611aH08 fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. This derivative fosmid construct lacks the upstream 8-mer motif (CTGTTTCA) next to 21U-3372. The expression of this individual 21U-RNA is lost in transgenic animals. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment.

AGK234 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; niDf199 IV; armEx53. Show Description
armEx53 [WRM0611aH08 + unc-119(+)]. Pick non-Unc to maintain. unc-119(ed3) was crossed into JU258, the niDf199IV deletion was confirmed by PCR, and these Unc worms were used for bombardment. This strain contains a transgenic array that expresses the WRM0611aH08 fosmid construct. This fosmid contains the niDF199 locus (around 4 kb) that is deleted in the natural C. elegans isolate strain JU258. JU258 worms lack specific 21U-RNAs normally present in N2 worms due to this deletion of the niDF199 locus. Expression of this fosmid construct in JU258 worms restores the expression of the missing 21U-RNAs in the germline, as measured by RT-qPCR. Reference: Cecere G, et al. Mol Cell. 2012 Sep 14;47(5):734-45.
AH1747 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) III; zhIs35 I. Show Description

AV112 C. elegans mre-11(ok179) IV/nT1 [unc-?(n754) let-?] (IV;V). Show Description
Heterozygotes are Unc and segregate Uncs (heterozygotes), non-Unc mre-11 homozygotes, and dead eggs (nT1 homozygotes). mre-11 homozygotes produce about 200 fertilized eggs but only about 2-3% of these eggs survive to adulthood (this mutation cannot be maintained in a homozygous condition). Occasionally non-Unc progeny that do not demonstrate the mre-11(ok179) mutant phenotype arise when grown in large liquid cultures. mre-11 is the predicted gene ZC302.1
AV221 C. elegans unc-119(ed3) meT8 (III); meIs4 meT8 (IV); meIs1. Show Description
meIs1 [pie-1p::GFP::lacI + unc-119(+)]. meIs4 [lac-O + rol-6(su1006) + lacO] IV. Pick Rol worms to maintain. This strain throws both Rol and non-Rol worms, seemingly due to random silencing of rol-6(su1006) in the lacO array, meIs4. The strain expresses GFP::LacI in the gonad and embryos that is observed as foci (of lacO target) and nuclear haze. The expression level of GFP::LacI occasionally becomes low possibly due to random silencing of meIs1. If this happens, heat shock the strain at 25°C for 3 days, and pick a clone that exhibits bright GFP signals. Even at the highest expression level, GFP signal is too weak to detect with a fluorescent dissection microscope, and it is necessary to use a regular compound fluorescent microscope with an oil immersion 60X or 100X objective. The NA of the objective should be higher than 1.4. Reference: Bilgir C, et al. G3 (Bethesda). 2013 Mar 11. pii: g3.112.005165v1.

Superficially wild-type. Referred to as MP3-His. Strain can be used to biotinylated carboxylases from worm extracts. AX7884 obtained by crossing parental strains PHX1772 pod-2(syb1772[pod-2::His10]) II, PHX1666 mccc-1(syb1666[mccc-1::His10]) IV, PHX1680 pyc-1(syb1680[pyc-1::His10]) V and PHX1626 pcca-1(syb1626[pcca-1::His10]) X to obtain the quadruple His10-tagged strain. The 5xGlycine(G-linker)-His10 tag is a 45 bp sequence (GGAGGAGGAGGAGGACACCATCACCATCACCACCACCACCACCAC) encoding five glycine as a linker and ten histidine residues was knocked in at the C terminus-just upstream of the termination codon-of each of the four carboxylases.

BA759 C. elegans hcDf1 IV; eEx25. Show Description
eEx25 [C13G4(cosmid) + XDM23(phage)]. Animals with eEx25 are WT. Pick wild-type to maintain. Animals which have lost eEx25 are Twitchers and Sterile (occasionally produce young). This cosmid lacks the 3' end of the unc-22 gene while XDM23 lacks the 5' end of unc-22, but following injection an extrachromosomal array was formed that included at least one functional unc-22 gene.
BA959 C. elegans spe-29(it127) dpy-20(e1282) IV. Show Description
Homozygous male/hermaphrodite line. Males are fertile. Hermaphrodites are sterile, but slightly leaky producing a few progeny (at 25C - ts not tested). In pronase, spermatids from males activate to form many long spikes, terminating at this stage. A very few (1-3 per worm) activate to form normal-looking, motile spermatozoons.
BA975 C. elegans spe-6(hc163) III; spe-29(it127) dpy-20(e1282) IV. Show Description
spe-6(hc163) suppresses the self-sterility of spe-29 in this strain. Self-sterile at 25C.
BB239 C. elegans adr-1(uu49) I; adr-2(uu28) III. Show Description
Chemotaxis deficient. Transgenes are silenced in this background. Reference: Reich DP, et al. Genes Dev. 2018 Feb 1;32(3-4):271-282.

BC1519 C. elegans dpy-18(e364)/eT1 III; sDf31/eT1 V. Show Description
Heterozygotes are WT and segregate WT, Unc-36 and dead eggs. Maintain by picking WT. Original isolation: BO strain BC1261 unc-22(s727) hermaphrodite heat shocked for 1 hour at 34C. Crossed to N2 strain BC1270 unc-22(s7) unc-31(e169)/nT1 IV; +/nT1 V. Picked individual WT hermaphrodites. Screened for the absence of gravid Unc-22. Retained strain as BC1379. Balanced over eT1: BC1379 unc-22(s727)[BO]/nT1[N2] IV; sDf31[BO]/nT1[N2] hermaphrodite crossed to BC 1265 dpy-18(e364)/eT1 III; unc-46(e177)/eT1 V. Pick WT hermaphrodites that twitch in 1% nicotine. Retained one strain that segregated Unc-36 as BC1428. Pseudolinked sDf31 to dpy-18: BC1428 +/eT1 III; sDf31[BO]/eT1 V crossed to BC 1265 dpy-18/eT1 III; unc-46/eT1 V male. Picked WT hermaphrodite F1. From strains segregating Unc-36 but no Dpy or Unc-46 or DpyUnc-46, cross WT hermaphrodites to BC1265 males. From strains producing Dpy, crossed individual WT males to BC70 eT1;eT1. From each cross, crossed WT X WT. Kept one strain producing on Dpy or DpyUncs as S-H716 male. Picked one hermaphrodite to start BC1519. Comments: 1) The LGV region balanced by eT1 should be all BO. 2) Probably the rest of the genome still has a considerable amount from BO since it was crossed to N2 only 4 times.
