WOP159 C.elegans ahcy?1(syb784 *syb646[ahcy?1(Y145C)::GFP]) I. Show Description
Engineered Y145C substitution mutation in endogenously GFP-tagged ahcy-1 locus. ahcy-1(Y145C) mutation mimics the pathogenic human mutation AHCY Y143C. ahcy-1(Y145C) mutants have a prolonged lifespan and are larger than control animals. ahcy-1(Y145C) mutants are fertile and produce a brood of laid and hatched eggs similar to control animals. ahcy-1(Y145C) mutants show a slight increase in SAH and a decrease in SAM levels, leading to an increased SAH to SAM ratio. See WOP122 for control strain. Derived by out-crossing parental strain PHX784 two times to N2. Reference: Thapa P, et al. NPJ Aging. 2023 Dec 5;9(1):27. doi: 10.1038/s41514-023-00125-1.
