KG532 C. elegans kin-2(ce179) X. Show Description
Adults generally short, although some can reach near normal length. Slow growth rate. Backing can be loopy, but does not like to back. Strongly hypersensitive to stimuli. Relatively constant spontaneous movement. Some clustering especially in response to stimuli. Mature adults have vulval bump. Most young adults are Egl-c and young embryos can be found on the plate. Some mature adults become moderately Egl-d. Recessive allele. Males are small and slow growing. Mutation is R92C, which is a conserved residue in the 10 amino acid inhibitory domain that normally functions to keep protein kinase A turned off in the absence of cAMP. Population tends to severely crash within 2-3 weeks of starvation.
