XA8400 C. elegans qaIs8400. Show Description
qaIs8400 [let-858p::Ov-GST-3 + rol-6(su1006)]. Called AK1 in the reference article. The Ov-GST-3 gene was amplified from genomic DNA of O. volvulus with 1µM of the sequence specific primer 5'Klon and 3'Klon (5'Klon: 5'-GGCGTACGATGTCAAGATTTCCTCAACAAG-3'; 3'Klon: 5'-GGTCTAGATTTATTTAGGAATGATTGAATCGGTCG-3'; representing bases 4 - 25 and the complementary sequence of bases 821 - 841 of the published Ov-GST-3 cDNA (AF203814); bold underlines indicate restriction sites for Pfl23II (SplI) and XbaI, respectively; dotted underline indicates the start codon for translation; italics indicates the conserved sequence for the polyadenylation signal for transgenic transcript processing; the 8 5'-nucleotides of primer 3'Klon and the fourteen 5'-nucleotides of primer 5'Klon do not correspond to the template and introduce the sequences to the amplicon), 200 µM of each deoxynucleotide (Gibco BRL) and 2.5 units of Taq polymerase (Gibco BRL). After an initial denaturation of 3 minutes at 93°C, 35 cycles of annealing at 55°C for 1 minute, synthesis at 72°C for 2 minutes and a 1 minute denaturation at 93°C were performed, followed by a final extension at 72°C for 5 minutes. The genomic Ov-GST-3 fragment obtained by PCR (see above) was ligated into the pGEM-T Easy vector (Promega) by TA-cloning, cleaved with the restriction enzymes Pfl23II (SplI) and XbaI (restriction sites introduced by the primer) and inserted between the unique Pfl23II (SplI) and XbaI sites of the vector pPD103.05 (kindly provided by A. Fire). The sequence of the genomic Ov-GST-3 fragment in the resulting plasmid pAK1 was confirmed by automated dye terminator, dideoxy sequencing (ABI Prism 377TM Sequencer, PE Applied Biosystems) using the PCR primers (see above). The pAK1 DNA was injected in combination with the marker plasmid pRF4 [rol-6(su1006)] into the gonads of N2 C. elegans at a concentration of approximately 100 ng/µl for each plasmid. Transgenic worms were identified by the selectable Roller marker phenotype and the stable transmitting line AK1ex (AK1 extrachromosomal) was established. Integration of the extrachromosomal arrays was achieved by irradiation of AK1ex worms with 3600 rad (1 rad = 0.01 Gy) of x-rays (x-ray chamber: RUM 9421-070-77002, Philips, Netherlands; dosimeter: PTW-SN4, PTW, Germany). The progeny of these worms was then screened for 100% transmittance of the Roller phenotype to obtain the C. elegans line AK1int (AK1 integrated) with the chromosomally integrated transgenes.

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.
