KG421 C. elegans gsa-1(ce81) I. Show Description
Coordinated hyperactive locomotion. Hypersensitive to mechanical stimuli. Most mature adults have vulval bump. Mature animals are slightly short and egl-d. Terminal phenotype is usually bag of worms. Population tends to severely crash within 2-3 weeks of starvation. Dominant, gain-of-function allele. Heterozygotes are difficult to distinguish from homozygotes. Mutation is R182C. This same mutation causes constitutive Gs activity in vertebrates. Sequence in WT: CCT TCG GTG TCG. Sequence in ce81: CCT TCG GTG TTG.
KG4731 C. elegans unc-116(ce815[LoxP+sup-1(e995)+LoxP]) III. Show Description
Lox P sites in 3' UTR and 4th intron flank kinesin motor domain sequences; sup-1(e995) mini-gene inserted in second intron. Appears wild-type on plates and in quantitative locomotion assays. Can be used to conditionally delete gene sequences encoding the conventional kinesin motor domain in a tissue specific manner by driving expression of Cre recombinase in the tissue of interest.
