RW3455 C. elegans stDf4/act-3(st22) V. Show Description
Heterozygotes are slow moving and fertile. stDf4 homozygotes move well and are sterile. st22 homozygotes are small and very sick. Pick slow moving animals and avoid well moving fertile recombinants.
DA468 C. elegans unc-31(e928) IV; act-2(ad468) act-3(ad767) V. Show Description
Patchy birefringence in pharyngeal muscles-semidominant.
EU1383 C. elegans act-2(ok1229) V. Show Description
Strain is homozygous viable due to redundancy of act- and act-3 genes. AT 15C, all embyros produced by homozygous mothers hatch; at 26C, 88% of embryos hatch. Deletion which removes 544 nucleotides of act-2 plus the predicted 3' UTR and 705 nucleotides 3' of that. This removes 163/376 amino acids of the act-2 sequence (calculated with ATG methionine included). Sequence of deletion is (text inside of slashes is deleted, with 5' and 3' sequences shown): (exon#2)5'....gtgaaatcgtgcgtgacatc/aaggagaagctttgtt........ ...tggatagacattggtgt/gcgcactccttctggat.....3'(872 nucleotides from stop codon). Removes 489/1131 coding base pairs, beginning in second exn and extending beyond the 3' UTR.
QC152 C. elegans mdt-15(et14) III. Show Description
The mdt-15(et14) gain-of-function mutation has no obvious phenotype on its own but can act as a paqr-2 suppressor. The C5832666T [WS200] mutation can be detected by PCR using the following primers: mdt-15(et14) Mut Fwd: 5’-GTGCCTCCAGATCCACAGCT-3’; mdt-15(et14) WT Fwd: 5’-GTGCCTCCAGATCCACAGCC-3’; mdt-15 Rev: 5’-CACCCATTGGAGCACCACT-3’. Annealing 65°C, expected product ~400 bp. Reference: Svensk E, et al. PLoS Genetics 9:e1003801. PMID: 24068966
