SS749 C. elegans deps-1(bn121) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III). Show Description
Maintain by picking GFP+ worms. deps-1 mutants are temperature-sensitive maternal-effect sterile (>80% sterile at 24.5C). Grow these balanced worms at 25C to verify that GFP+ worms are fertile and GFP- worms (deps-1 M+Z-) produce sterile progeny (M-Z-). It is best to keep deps-1 balanced because deps-1 M-Z- animals tend to lay many dead eggs and fewer eggs than WT at lower temps (15-20C).
